Doctor

A:   Hello
Thank you for posting your query on ATD.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Primary treatment of disc prolapse with spinal stenosis is rest and analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Mecobalamine is helpful in pain relief. Operative treatment such as discectomy is required if not relieved by rest. Hope your query get answered.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
