Hi,
you have spondilytic changes in your lumbar and cervical region.This is aging process so it can not cured but further damage can be prevented so you concentrate your mind to prevent more damage.
Continue physiotherapy like traction,short way diathermy and other exercise done at the center
take calcium and vitamin D suppliments.
Take more milk.
Continue medicines for other problems.
Continue slow walking and strictly follow the advices given by orthopedician.

I am a vegetarian 45 years old female and works for a corporate company, living a very sedentary lifestyle as my work also doesn t demand a lot of physical activities. I am already suffering from Lumbar spondylosis, I am on physiotherapy for the same & the physiotherapist has told me to join a gym & hire a personal trainer immediately as I am also feeling pain in my neck & knees & because of my erratic schedule, I just have the time to eat once a day. I almost gulps down 10 to 15 cups of coffee in a day. Please suggest me a general diet schedule, my specialized workout schedule and if you can explain me about my medical problem, I will be really thankful of you.?
