Back Pain- schmorls impression & diffused apophyse
Hi i have had lower back pain for 6 weeks now. I first thought it was sciatica, cos sometimes it runs down my leg.
I have been to different proffesionals, with different diagnosis and advice.
I was eventually refered to get some scans so the chiropractor can see exactly what is wrong. .
I had my scan results but i dont quite understand it :- i have a schmorls impression and diffused apophyse? can anyone translate that for me?
