Hello,

The standard of care in the U.S. with the type of lumbar spondylosis you refer in your father is to engage him in both PHYSICAL THERAPY as well as EXERCISE THERAPY.

I highly recommend AQUATHERAPY with WATER JOGGING as my #1 choice of activity in this category.

Some OTC medications such as TYLENOL (Extra Strength) as well as MOTRIN, IBUPROFEN, NAPROXEN, NAPROSYN, or ALEVE can also be helpful but should be limited to 15 doses per month so as not to risk developing pretty bad MEDICATION OVERUSE HEADACHES.

Surgery is CLEARLY NOT AN OPTION for the picture you are relating.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dariush Saghafi, Neurologist
