lower back paini am a ental surgeon having chronic lower back pain since 4 years.it has aggrevated since 2 yrs ,when it started radiating downwards to the thigh and lower limbs.i had taken extensive physiotherapy and had joined swimming which helped me for some time, but due to my work posture it came back again.i took ayurvedic treatment and again joined swimming, it was relieved for some time, however,one point in the lower left back region has a constant dull pain.My MRI shows degenerative changes in L5-S1 region along with annular tear an diffuse disbulge causing mild narrowing of bilateral neural foramen. There was no sensory eficit found on clinical examination by the doctor.I am doing Yoga-mainly stretching exercises for the lower back for 1 hour everyday as well as swimming freestyle for 50 minutes everyay, but i keep getting back the pain mainly on exertion while working.Offlate, i have developed pain in the left shoulder blade, like a muscle cramp along with the lower back pain,but without radiation to the lower limbs,more on the left lower back and upper part of the hips.kindly suggest a remedy, precautions, exercises and treatment.

The rest is degenerative
you need to either give up dentistry or find some equipment that will allow you to work in a different posture.
There is a lot of this type of equipment about - probably expensive.
Suggestion eat lots of gelatin - jelly , jelly babies , marrow bone jelly etc.
THe best remedy that occurs to me is Picric Acid say 6x potency twice a day for 23 weeks and wait.
