Hi. I want to know if there is a permanant cure for lumbar spondylysis?? If a patient is not willing to undergo surgery,can he spend his lifetime without any pain by taking medicines and ample rest. Will his motion be restricted in the growing years. The patient in reference is suffering from L5 S1 grade 2 lumbar spondylysis since Dec 2009 till date and is 60 yrs female from India. Please clarify.
