Brief Answer:
needs physiotherapy

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting the question.
I have noted down the medical history of your mother in detail.

If the doctor has diagnosed her of having a disc lesion at L5-S1,then i think that only taking rest will not help her.

She will have temporary relief till she takes rest for 3 months.
Once she starts ambulating after that,the pain will again start to creep in.This is because,taking rest will make her less active physically making her bones even more weak.The basic problem of the disc will not resolve and that will again lead to continuing pain.

In my opinion,she needs to be active and fit as early as possible.

She needs to take physiotherapy in the form of lumbar traction,short wave or LASER therapy,back strengthening exercises.

She should use lumbar belt for back support and avoid bending forwards or lifting anything heavy.

This way she will recover faster and even better.

I hope the answer was useful to you.

Feel free to ask me any follow up queries that you may have.

Thank you.
Kind regards.

Best wishes for her speedy recovery.

I am 34 years old and a mother of two. I have constant pain in my left hand and often get pain in above my breast or in the chest. Sometimes I feel pain in my back and some uneasiness in my face. I got ECG done and my physician says it is normal. This happens very often and the pain subsides in few minutes and happens again. Generally, I get a burp or release gas oftern when I experience the pain. Please let me know, if this is any gastric related or any other tests that I will have to get done to confirm any cardiac related problems.
