Abdominal and back muscle exercises (core-strengthening exercises) help condition these muscles so that they work together like a natural corset for your back. Flexibility in your hips and upper legs aligns your pelvic bones to improve how your back feels...go for these exercises maintain healthy weight...get an MRI done and Consult nearest orthopedic surgeon they will do the needful.
