What could i do to help myself without surgery ?
I have DDD at L4/5 and L5/S1 with small annular tears and slight bulging and right sided L5 foraminal stenosis.
The pain is not bad but just a slight niggling pain.
My biggest problem is when i do aerobic exercise my right leg goes weak after 10 to 15 mins and i have to stop. My consultant says it is the L5 stenosis.
He just wants to give me an ESI but i want to try stretching/physiotherapy.
Anybody out there got any past experiance or knowledge of this type of problem and the stetching i could do.
