Hello. Need to know the canal diameter at L4 -L5 level. See it is given in the MRI report.
Hello! don't be panic it's not a serious condition. Consult a physiotherapist they will give lumbar traction to reduce disc compressions and minimise disc buldge and tell him to do spinal strengthening exercises and sleep on firm mattress and avoid long sitting ,and forword bending and avoid single leg stand .use ice pack over the back muscle for 10 min for pain relief.
