My brother is a patient of Lumbar Spondylosis with degenerative disc disease causing significant L3-4 canan stenosis and bilateral L3 nerve root compression. He had taken Ayurvedic treatment for abt 2 months.. Now he is able to walk but while sitting long he is having back pain. Can you please suggest and also pls confirm is it completely curable ?

Hello,

Supportive treatment will be enough. Surgical correction is only required in case of severe pain or neurological symptoms like weakness or numbness.

Complete cure is possible by surgical correction and symptomatic relief will be there by conservative management.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family physician
