acute backache, sacralization and synostosis

I am experiencing acute lower backache since last two and a half months. Initially the doctors diagnosed a muscular spasm and advised me ibuprofen and bed rest. The x-ray of my backbone show no abnormality then. Now recently when another doctor took x-ray of my back he has given the following report :-
         -  Lv4 - Lv5 disc space is mildly reduced.
         -  sacralization of Lv5 is seen, synostosis between transverse
            processes of Lv5 and Alac of sacrum and markedly reduced
            adjoining disc space.
         -  vertebral heights are intact.
         -  sacralization of Lv5.
Can you please advice me some treatment, precautions and exercises?

read up about the prostate gland....always a possibility with lower back pain. Don't know about that other stuff...do you sit a lot.....many stretches and mild yoga can help but ease into it.  I also recommend trying a vegetarian diet with vitamin supplements for about a week or so and lots of water. I hope it helps atleast narrow down the source of the pain. Good luck.
