Hello, Thanks for your query on Lybrate "As" per your clinical history is concerned please take medication as usual and discuss with your physio therapist for a specific exercise plan. If you have already tried then go for surgical treatment to decompress the nerve. Do follow lifestyle modifications like this - 1)Do exercise. Strengthening the trunk muscles helps stabilize and support the spine. 2)Try to maintain good posture. Good posture reduces the pressure on your spine and disks. Keep your back straight and aligned, particularly when sitting for long periods. Lift heavy objects properly, making your legs — not your back — do most of the work. 3)Try to maintain a healthy weight. Excess weight puts more pressure on the spine and disks, making them more susceptible to herniation. Hope that helps
