I have a gap in l4 and l5 gets lot of pain while sitting for long period
Hello Thanks for the query I dont exactly know what you mean by gap between 14 and 15. I am guessing you are having chronic back pain. Here are my suggestions to you 1. Do not sit for more than 30 min, take small strolls around the office and strech 2. Tab Naproxen is an ideal drug for pain, take once a day for 3 days. DO not take it for more than 5 days 3. Core muscle exercises Regards
