What could be the reason of having numbness of the legs ?

I try to make a long story short. Ok to begin with, about 22 years ago, I found myself unable to move or walk, this lasted for about one week. I was not able to see a doctor cause at this time i was not healthinsured. I am now 43 years old, female and i have serious problems walking, my right leg is limping and sometimes I fall over my own feet. Additionally the right hip is affected and numbness of the legs (both legs). At times I have extreme backpain and out of that reason I went to see a doctor who made an xray. he hold me i have crooked spine and discs wear. my question now, can these problems be the result of what happend 22 years ago and is there a way to where I can walk normal again

and some strenthening exercise that strenthen ur body and facilitate ur walking skills.

electrotherapy modalities are for disc problem & some sort of strtches for ur crooked spine.
