I am having lower back pain which is spreading towards right hip towards foot. Undergoing physio also from past 5 days but not much effect. Applying hot and cold pack from past few days as well. While lying down there is relief, but walking and sitting gives pain.

It seems like sciatica pain due to PIVD. Ask your physiotherapist to explain you about the reason for this pain and how much time it will take. And be patient with your physiotherapy sessions as in some cases it take time may be 15 days or so. take care

It seems to be a Disc prolapse as brought out by other collegues but the diagnosis can be pinpointed only by a physical examination. The cause has to be ascertained and treated. Your profession, age, gait, posture etc need to be examined.

In my opinion the problem is at L4 - L 5 level where the nerve is getting compressed.. so kindly continue with physio sessions and go for few tests like vitamin b 12 , vitamin d , calcium as becoz of if these levels are derranged den these kind of pain aggravates... take tab. Gabanuron 300once a day at bedtime.. that will help reducing the radiating pain and in this kind of pain hot fermentation will be better than hot and cold fermentation...get well soon take care

No opinion can be made unless and until you are diagnosed correctly there are several reasons of (LBA) low back ache. The radiating of pain occurs in sciatica which is compression of sciatic nerve . Which depending on the intensity/ severity can be addressed and managed by few exercises and stretches. But to be fully cured you need to make some lifestyle changes , so that the problem never occurs again . Which usually depends upon your occupation. Please consult a nearest occupational therapist regarding this. It will be great to start of with an MRI SPINE so as to accurately define the intensity and extent of the problem. And then start off with exercises and lifestyle and habbit changes. Stay Healthy
