Lower back pain (LBP) is incredibly common in the human population. In fact, you could say that just about everyone in this life will experience lower back pain. Most of the time LBP is not dangerous but more of a nuisance. Most episodes will fade away with time and treatment.
Your mother has degenerative disc disease of L4-S1 and some sacroiliac joint degeneration which is very common and a typical cause of LBP. A good rehab program is necessary with possible support by medications.
Surgery is only necessary in uncommon situations. Please see the topic under “Treatments”/”When to have Lower Back Surgery” to understand when surgery is indicated.

Surgery is not needed at this stage and can be avoided by proper treatment. You need to visit a good chiropractor who will administer proper physical exercises, posture correction and will help her feel better.The chiropractic doctor is unique in the health care field in that much of the training in chiropractic colleges is specifically aimed at identifying and successfully treating and managing lower back conditions. This should be combined with the drugs the doctor prescribes.The results will really be great!
