Hello!

NSAIDs should never be taken in a continuous way and can be taken intermittently.

Physical examination shows tenderness directly over the involved vertebrae.

The Schmorl's nodes symptom are self limiting and usually does not require extensive treatment. A careful rehabilitation program consisting of an initial rest period followed by a gradual return to full activity should be attempted and the pain will not stay all the while in most of the cases.

Surgery is the last option and rarely indicated. Herniations of the intervertebral disc through the vertebral end plate are the reason for symptoms and for future safety follow proper ergonomics and avoid any trauma.

Take care!
