Lower back pain
I have a pain in my lower back from 2013. Since than I had taken 2 xrays of it. Doctor says there is a gap and pain is because of this. Last year in Aug 2016, I removed sonography (detailed) for which I paid 5000, when the doctor saw the report he said there is a torn ligament and the jelly is coming out.

Hello, You seem to have a slipped disc with annular tear. Depending on the amount of compression that the disc is causing and whether you have other symptoms like tingling, numbness, the treatment plan will vary. Interventional pain management will be ideal for you, followed by physiotherapy. An epidural injection will avert further pain and the need for surgery.

The explanation given to you fits with prolapsed disc. I hope this was explanation was after an MRI scan. Since you have only back pain and no pain in legs, there is no pressure on nerves. There will be some amount of wear and tear in the discs. Make sure you do core strengthening exercises and yoga. Maintain correct posture and avoid stress.on your back. If any symptoms change then see a Spinal Surgeon.
Next Steps
Core strengthening exercises,yoga, maintain correct posture and painkillers when pain is worse.
Health Tips
Any change of symptoms see a Spinal Surgeon
