dear amarjeet postrior protrusion and wedging of S1 and S2 segments com pressing the existing nerve roots are obvious.stenosis also present resulting in the radiculopathy . pregablin , gabapantene will be helpful in reducing the pain. Tramadol hydrochloride will be helpful to reduce the pain.steroidal and NSAID's will be helpful in reducing the inflammation. methylcobalamine 2500 mcg injections or 1500 mcg sublingually will help in healing of the nerve. supplement with cholecalceferol 60,000O units and collagen 2 peptide and diacerene for cartilage repair. physiotherapy in form of deep heating ( SWD or MWD )

spinal traction intermittent for first 5 min for nerve mobilization followed by static traction for 10 min will help to dislodge the pressure on the nerve roots. tens for radiating pain will help. moist heat to reduce local protective spasm will help

Give pregabalin and start tens for leg pain

if there is no neurological deficit, go for conservative treatment like analgesic, pregabapentin/gabapentin, physical support. n physiotherapy

this is nerve root compression due to disc protrusion go for TENS ,IFT followed by flexion ex's ,complete bed rest for two days ,,after that general rest for a week ,don't go for traction now ,use hard structure for sleeping ,don't do forward bending ,lifting and follow dr mukesh and dr saurabh advice

A common problem nowadays . Start with moist heat,Rest, Tens/ Ift in the leg along sciatic nerve course, Calcium and vitamin D, Later on after week or so , with relief use Back support, mild to moderate back and abdominal exercises.
