Hi there!

The report describes loss of normal curvature of the lower spine. This could result from inflammation followed by muscle spasm. There is also a disc herniation at L4/L5 that is causing mild intrusion into the space that carries the spinal cord. Since the changes are mild-moderate, an initial trial of conservative management with rest, anti-inflammatory medications and physiotherapy to strengthen the back muscles may be tried before considering alternative therapies.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
