Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

There are chances of disc prolapse if the following conditions are associated with the lower back pain:

  1. If the lower back pain has been there for more than six weeks.
  2. If there is any radiation of pain to the leg.
  3. If there is any associated numbness in the leg.
  4. If the pain worsens during movements like coughing, sneezing, etc.

If these conditions are present, get an MRI scan done and revert back to an orthopaedician online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/orthopaedician-and-traumatologist
