Back and joint problem, MRI shows slip disc, reported it was sue to stress. Advice?

yes i am suffering from some kind of back and joint problem since 5 years. it has started with the discomfort in the back at thoracic vertebra. I used to feel something is stuck in side of my vertebral joint. i used to ask my wife to step on my back inorder to click as it gave a relief. Now i am on the stage where i click my every single joint as i feel discomfort and a little bit of muscular tension at my back. I HATE THIS FEELING. LAST TIME I HAD AN MRI FOR MY LUMBAR AREA IT CAME THAT I HAVE A SLIP DISC, WHILE TECHNICIAN DOING MRI SCAN HE REPORTED TO ME AS IF I WAS STRESS AS HE CAN SEE MY BACK MUSCLES COINTINOUSLY IN SPASMIC CONDITION.

Thanks for writing to us.
The spasm in the back muscles can be adequately relieved with muscle relaxants. You can get these prescribed from your orthopedician in combination with anti inflammatory agents. Using an L-S belt will be helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
