hi, yours seems to be disc prolapse. so better go for complete bed rest for 1 month and can do ayurvedic panchakarmas and external therapies like katee vasthi, thaila dhara ect under the supervision of an ayurveda doctor.
Hello lybrate-user, It seems as disc herniation. So do not join gym. Meanwhile go for physiotherapy if having pain. Otherwise avoid sit for long time and bending. If you show me the report privately then can advise the best exercises and medicine for you. Thanks.
