My mother, 58 years age, had slip disk 8-9 years back. That time she didn't felt any pain but from past 3 years when she started feeling pain and numbness in both legs after consulting an orthopaedic ,her diagnosis showed that many of her nerves are blocked due to the slip disk and which is still causing her pain, unable to stand straight, dis balance and numbness. The orthopaedic doctor said that a surgery is very risky (life risk, so asked her to move on and do hot water bag. She also tried acupuncture treatment but it didn't effected. If you can provide any solution then i'd be really help full, after talking 2-3 steps she just gets in pain and some times cries too.
