Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist 's  Response
hi,

I feel you need to focus on a non invasive method of getting rid of pain issues and come back to normalcy of activities of daily living.

you need to strengthen your back and do some core strengthening exercises. also not to ignore you need to strengthen your lower limbs as well. it might take a little time of 12+/- but you can be get helped with exercises and even may not need surgery if your body performs well and accepts the exercises. you can surely use the physical therapist service for any physical modalities as well and a guided exercise under supervision.

I wish you a speedy recovery and a bright future.
thank you
