Hey thanks for the information. But my injury occurred at work about a year ago. Pain has gotten worse. Ive done physical therapy. Esi... and nothing is working. Im in pain everyday. U dont see reason for surgery with those results?
Well, your back disorder seems to be at an early enough stage that physiotherapy just might be able move and dissolve the scar tissue placing pressure on your nerve roots and cord so that the pain improves.
NSAID medications, ice packs, and walking as your condition allows are all old-fashioned but tried and true treatments for this early stage of back disease,
Remember, surgery should always be the last card to be played, unless you're experiencing a life-threatenting for instance, occlusion of the cord causing paraplegia or loss of bladder/bowel control.
However, from your report of symptoms, you are far from having to face these kinds of problems.
In the mean time, use Google and Wikepaedia to research disc disease, degenerative disc disease, lumbar spondylosis, as well as the anatomy of the lumbar spine, and possible treatment options. The field of interventional pain medicine may offer you a sizeable percentage of pain reduction, as well as common activities like exercise.

Yes I'm having pain in my right leg...
Bet your having some leg pain am I right ??
There's not a lot here that would indicate pain. There are small signs of mild disc disease, but these findings could be a natural part of aging.
Your doctor is the best source for helping you understand these results, as he/she will combine information from your medical history and the results of a physical examination with the findings in this report to come up with an accurate diagnosis.
