what is mean by L4/5 disc pisterior annular relaxation
Hi, Thanks for your query. L4/5 refers to lumbar vertebra 4 and 5. There is an intervening disc between eac vertebra whose cicumferential part is called annulus. Its posterior relaxation may be slightly bulging and impinging on the spinal cord causing back pain. You may be needing physiotherapy or muscle relaxant... Best wishes
 
MRI states annular tear & disc bulges in L4-5 & L5-S1. Is it curable? will I be able to lead a normal life? whom shld I consult for treatment? is surgery reqd?.
MRi reports suggest that you have disc herniation and it needs some treatment but not necessarily surgery as it is last resort. Before that you can try physiotherapy, Drugs like pregabalin and methylcobal. I would suggest you to try all these before thinking surgery as an option.
 
I have a gap in l4 and l5 gets lot of pain while sitting for long period
Hello Thanks for the query I dont exactly know what you mean by gap between 14 and 15. I am guessing you are having chronic back pain. Here are my suggestions to you 1. Do not sit for more than 30 min, take small strolls around the office and strech 2. Tab Naproxen is an ideal drug for pain, take once a day for 3 days. DO not take it for more than 5 days 3. Core muscle exercises Regards
