Can any online doctor help with the MRI scan reports ?

Hi my name is Sandra. I just receive this final test from an MRI.. Can you please let me know what does it mean: FINDINGS: Lumbar vertebral bodies are normally aligned. There are no compression fractures or focal regions of abnormal signal within the vertebra. Images through the distal cord and conus reveal no evidence for cord compression and no regions of abnormal signal within the distal cord or conus. L1-L2 through L3-L4: There are no disc bulges or herniations, neural foraminal narrowing or central spinal stenosis . L4-L5: There is a right posterolateral disc herniation with right subarticular stenosis. L5-S1: No significant abnormalities identified. IMPRESSION: Right posterolateral disc herniation at L4-L5 with mild right subarticular stenosis and possible impingement upon the traversing right L5 nerve root. TX

MRI report tells that you have a disc bulge at L4-5, which is not that significant, & you should get relief with physiotherapy esp. Traction , IFT & Flexion regimen exercises.
