Low Back Pain


Q: I have been experiencing low back pain, recent MRI test shows: At L3-L4, minimal disc bulging is present, posterolaterally. The spinal canal congenitally is somewhat small, the facets are mildly hypertrophied medially, and this contributes to mild to borderline moderate central spinal canal stenosis. At L4-L5, there is mild diffuse disc bulging. Mild bilateral facet hypertrophy is present. There is borderline to mild central spinal canal stenosis at the L4-L5 level. Incidental note made of a hemangioma in the L2 vertebral body. What this mean? As day goes by, pain increases, causing pain to lying down, sitting, etc. Sometimes I wake up with pain in the lower back. What can be done to relieve the pain? What will be the best treatment?
