Hello Coach, Arun from delhi, 43 years old (weight 81 Kg, Height 5 ft 8 inch), sedentary job style. I was very health conscious about diet, fitness. But during workout for abdominal strength, there was some pain in my back & doctor suggest for MRI and found there was slip disc / disc herniation issue of L4-L5. During last 2.6 years, does several physiotherapy with renowned physio center, yoga & focusing on my diet plan. After 1.6 years also comparing MRI report, shows almost same situation. Need your guidance in this matter, how to recover from pain. Because my current situation is, while standing 5-6 minutes, or walking 5-10 minutes, pain increase from buttock to left side feet. Then I have to take rest for 3-4 minutes, to start again. So, please guide me or suggest me as per your experience. Thanks Arun kumar
Ans: Hello Arun,
Please do let me know more details about the physiotherapy done. Did they give you a Mckenzie program for slipped disc as that is one of the best treatment for disc issues. It includes systematic exercises like wall side glides, road kill position, back extensions. If you are having pain on left side of leg/feet it seems to be a posterolateral disc protrusion for which the wall side glides are very important.
Have you been working on your core? Are your Vitamin D3 and B12 levels ok? How much is your weight now?
If not already please goto a Mckenzie certified physiotherapist and it can make a lot of difference.
If not ok after that also then you may need to go to an orthopedic doctor and consider a minor surgery for the disc.
All the best!

Ans: Hello Biswajit,
I can understand your situation. Regular physiotherapy is very important for your mother.
You can also try some other alternate therapies like sujok, accupressure or some ayurvedic treatment.
With allopathy alternate therapies are very good to do to help manage the situation better and improve her quality of life.
All the best!
