I have DDD from L3 to S1. Had a small posterior far lateral disc herniation at L3-L4 compressing the right L3 nerveroot as it leaves the formina. The radiologist commented on it. The nuerologist and several other specialist in Toronto do no think there is a compression or is significant to warrant surgery. Yet I have severe pain on right side and my pelvis tilts over to the left and I have severe pain on right side buttocks and upper back. It has thrown my whole body out with pain and degeneration as the body is not moving properly. Hip, knee ankle, pain under the shoulder, Hip is not moving well. Knee is becoming malaligned to weak muscles.

Any help?
Anyonw with similar problem?
