Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
Degeneration of the L4-L5 disc would imply that the disc that is normally present between the vertebra would not be able to function effectively. It would definately contribute to the pain that you are experiencing. It is treated with mediation ( oral and injections in some persons) and physical therapy
is narrowing of the spinal canal
. It is treated by pain medication, anti spasmodic medication when necessary, physical therapy and in some cases, surgery. In some persons it can result in significant problems but your doctor will monitor you and treat appropriately.
I hope this helps
