Hi sir My name is shahzad Gill, age 29 year , weight 60 kg. height 5.7 inch...6 month ago accident happen with me . I got some inner injuries at my back and was taken to hospital. I was provided medical treatment and was bedridden for 3 days with pain in my back. That time they done some x-ray and told me it ok nothing any problem, but I could not get rid of the pain. After one month again i On consulting a doctor, he recommended to go through MRI test, MRI results as below please advise & guide me i can’t understand what does means. 1-There is partial compression of L1 vertebral body not causing significant pressure on thecal sac . Finding most likely due to trauma. 2-Multilevel disc desiccation is noted. 3-Bulging annulus posteriorly at L4-L5 causing mild indentation on thecal sac. 4-Normal paravertebral soft tissues.

hi shahzad
looking at the history and mri report it seems that you have significant injury to the back but you are quite lucky that you may not require any surgical management for that at this stage.
Instead worrying what has happened you need to plan your future so that you have less pain.
all you need is good physiotherapist a proper size taylors brace and lifestyle modification so that the injuries wont hurt you in future .
take a opinion of good spine specialist for that.
