What does this MRI report of lower back indicate?
Take precautions and treatment as advised under neurologist guidance
I have gone through your question and evaluated your MRI on the link provided.
The images are showing mild foraminal stenosis and mild disc prolapse without any significant cord or canal stenosis.
For now you should take proper care. Avoid heavy object lifting, bending forward,standing or sitting for prolonged periods.
Take pain killers with muscle relaxants for present pain ad muscle spasm ( Aceclofenac, naproxen, etoricoxib, tramadol with muscle relaxants like thiocolchicoside, tizanidine or Tolperisone)
Pain modulator drugs like pregabalin, gabapentin or amitriptyline may also be initiated under guidance of treating neurologist in gradually increasing doses.
No need for any surgical intervention.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health and fast recovery.

Continue treatment as advised previously
The report is also showing disc prolapse with mild foraminal narrowing and compression of exiting roots.
The management remains same as discussed earlier.
