In brief: Unsure therapy

With low back pain, there are a number of options depending on historical aspects.
Unclear on "lumbar straightened" or the internal lump finding. Suggest strongly that you see the physician who ordered these imaging tests to create a care plan to address. Recent studies have suggested physical treatments like yoga or pilates are helpful more than use of drugs like opioids.
