Thanks for the query. Your MRI
shows age related changes in spine and they should not be considered serious unless there is a correlation between the clinical symptoms with MRI findings. Back pain
could be due to degenerated disc however it can be treated with medicine and physiotherapy
. Surgery is always considered as the last option when other measures failed. The nerve
impingement usually cause leg pain. Do you have any leg pain? Again it can be treated with medicine. Thus surgery usually considered a last option in treating spine problems.
