Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist Sidharth's  Response
hello parul,
welcome to HCM,
as u have mentioned about your problem, this backache or LBA is due to pregnancy..
normally after pregnancy ur back muscles get weak and after that u need to strengthen ur back muscle along with abdominal muscles which keeps your back fit and fine.pain free..
now coming to the point.for ur reduced disk space u need to do a MRI scan to find out the nerve involvement in detail.
now u need to consult a physiotherapist to assess ur pain and prescribe u the proper exercises to avoid pain..
u can have normal diet but avoid constipation and indigestion which agrevates the back pain..

you can conceive but it can increase ur back pain.. so better go for proper exercises and then u can conceive next time..

hope this piece of advice will be helpfull for u..
