Morkie with back issues

Hi I have a morkie who's 5 yrs old. 2 yrs ago we discovered he had back issues and after xrays it was determined that it was a slipped disc.

They told us to creat rest him and give him anti inflammatory to help him recover. It worked but his back can be agitated if he jumps or plays hard.
Also hes not as active anymore, doesnt run around the house like my other 3 yr old malshih. He also wont go down stairs as he is scared and we trained him to wait until we pick him up.

I just feel bad for the guy because he is less active and we always have to make sure hes not moving around to fast. He also doesnt engage in any horseplay with the other one.

I was wondering would it be a good alternative to look into a sugary? Or should we put him on strict crate rest .
