Dear Doctors, My recent MRI comes up with the following. Please advise me what would be the best possible treatment. 1. Significant spasm of the paravertebral muscles of the back. 2. L4-5 posterior central disc protrusion slightly indenting the opposing thecal sac and minimally encroaching on both recesses. Associated posterior midand right para-sagittal recent radial annular tear. 3.Loss of the bright T2 signal intensity of the presumed L4-5 disc denoting dehydration and degeneration of its discogenic materials. Preserved height as well as the bright T2 signal intensity of the other scanned discs.
