Dear Dr, i have been suffering from lumbar disc prolapse at L4 level since 6 years. i have taken bedrest , traction and ayurveda treatment at that time and got good relief. but i find it difficult to walk for long time, or do any kind of exercise as a result of which i have gained weight. i get spasms in my back on and off especially before periods but this is relieved with rest. Is there any solution for this pain?
