mild degeneration

what does it mean when an xray comes back with mild degenerative changes of the lumbar vertabrae noted. Minimal narrowing of the disc space of the L2 - L3 vertabrae indentified, what can be done and how do I get rid of the pain that is dibilitating my way of life?

Your x-ray report could be far worse. The radiologist appears to be noting a small degree of "wear & tear" within your lumbar spine.

There are a number of different things you can do to improve your quality of life - chiropractic care, stretching, yoga, etc. Overweight people often notice a decrease in back pain simply by losing a few pounds...

Core strengthening/stabilization exercises, McKenzie exercises (He has several books out or look online), and pilates exercises are other options.

I used to do transcription for a physiatrist (physician who specializes in physical medicine, rehab, & pain) and he recommended those to most of his patients.
