Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
If you have weakness of the leg you should undergo surgical decompression otherwise you suffer risk of paralysis. If no leg weakness, then combination of analgesics, medically prescribed back extension exercises and physiotherapy will suffice. Avoid lifting heavy weights. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Do regular brisk walking exercises.
