Doctor: For the management of lower back pain due to spondylosis, non-surgical treatment options include yoga, massage, physical therapy, analgesics, anti-inflammatory drugs, lifestyle modification, or nerve block injections. Stretching and strengthening exercises for the back and abdominal muscles can help prevent future recurrences of pain by increasing the strength, flexibility and range of motion. Lumbosacral orthotics may be used to decrease the lumbar load by stabilizing the lumbar spine. If none of these seem to help with your symptoms, you may opt for the available surgical options for treatment.For the management of lower back pain due to spondylosis, non-surgical treatment options include yoga, massage, physical therapy, analgesics, anti-inflammatory drugs, lifestyle modification, or nerve block injections.
