hai Mr sanjay ,may i first know ur occupation pls?You mentioned u have pain in spine,but which region?cervical/thoraci/lumbar?Dont get biased by MRI reports.How significant is ur pain?Is it occuring after a days work most of the time in the evenings due to sitting long hours before the computer?Then u first need to change ur work atmosphere like sitting properly with back well supported in the chair,taking regular break of atleat 5min after an hour of work,wearing a lumbar belt when u sit or stand n remove it when u r about togo to bed,doing regular physitherapy for back strengthening exercises,n take analgesics if u have severe pain for 3-5 days along with bedrest.Are u getting pain during night ?Dontworry about the schmorls nodes n mild disc bulges on mri which have no neural compression.U mentioned that at l4/l5 there is a disc bulge with thecal sac indentation .this should be of concern.First follow the treatment which i mentioned before for 5 days n if u dont get relief kindly consult a neursurgeon once.
