Suffering from Disc Caudal Migration in Lumbar region

hi, my wife is suffering from a case of caudal migration of a disc in the lumbar region (between L4 and L5) due to which the nerve roots in the spinal cavity/canal are getting supressed and she is experiencing a shooting pain in her left leg. She is unable to walk much right now, has got limited mobilty (has to hop most of the time or lie down in bed). Is this an orthopaedic case or a neurological one? Is surgery the only solution or there are alternate ways to remedy the ailment? My wife is 28 yrs old, weight around 90 Kgs and has a history of Hypothyroidism and PCOD

welcome to health care magic
When the spongy discs between the vertebrae of the spine in the lower back degenerate, they become weak. This leads to a narrowing of the spinal column, which is what spondylosis refers to. The lumbar region bears the brunt of most of the body's weight, so with time everyone's vertebrae degenerate.
Even if you consult an orthopedic consultant for your problem, after investigations, he will tell you that there is no definitive treatment for spondylosis and treating it symptomatically by prescribing analgesics is what they will do. But a good doctor will also tell you that ONLY exercise during pain free period can enhance your chances of reducing the existing lumbar spondylosis and revert it back as far as possible.
Well, t is absolutely true that effective stretching exercises like Yogasanas help one get rid of lumbar spondylosis.
you can rely upon homeopathy for help! Homeopathic medicines work wonderfully o alleviate the lumbar pain and numbness if associated. The homeopathic medicines act from inside out and heal the dislocated discs and give permanent relief when coupled with yoga.
Consult an expert homeopath and get rid of your lumbar spondylosis soon!
homeopathy will not only treat disease it will treat person as a whole so your wife will get rid of thyroid ,pcod and lumbar pain simulaneously.
good luck
