Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

You are suffering from lumbosacral radiculopathy with grade 1 spinolithesis.
You should continue physiotherapy.
Weight reduction is a good idea.

Avoid lifting heavy objects, squatting position, stooping forward, sitting crossed leg.
Take calcium rich diet milk and milk products.
Calcium and vitamin D supplementation can be taken.

Pain killers with muscle relaxant like Etoricoxib or Aceclofenac with Thiocholchicoside or Tizanidine can be taken for pain.

Hope you found the answer helpful.
