Thanks in Advance.
for herniated disc physical load should be limited! Physiotherapy ordered by physicians, and its use should be supervised by a specialist. You have a history of this pathology, so after tilting the aggravation is very likely.
What to do in this situation? First, to continue the course of Movalis to 7 days, as prescribed by a doctor.
second, re-do an MRI to examine the condition of the spinal column (3 years have passed since diagnostic pathology).
Third, bed rest and reducing the load on the spine will eliminate the pain. Offer to buy a supporting corset and apply it when the lower back pain.
The rest of the recommendations will give the treating physician after analyzing the results of x-ray or magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar spine.
