Brief Answer: It is not serious. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for posting your query. First of all, I would like to reassure you that your current symptoms and X-ray findings are not serious and there is no need to worry about them. As of now, the treatment would be mainly with physiotherapy, such as IFT/ultrasound and back extension exercises. Pain relief medications may also be used. This could include diclofenac or ibuprofen tablets. Please attach the doctor's prescription and X-ray reports. I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
