Thanks for posting your query.

You are suffering from prolapsed intervertebral disc(PIVD).

You have to continue physiotherapy which can cause relieve over nerve by prolapsed disc.

If your symptoms increases ,you have to visit an orthopaedic surgeon for examination and treatment plan according to that.
