It can be done with minimal efficiacy. Repetitions and sets can be done with the adequate intervals.

Once the inflammation gets reduced, the shrinkage of disc will happen. For that you need to undergo a physiotherapy treatment atleast for 3-4 weeks. Avoid putting much weight over the impinged area. Wear a lumbar corset to avoid weight bearing and mcr chappals to act as a shock absorber and reduce the weight over the foot.

Actually, I have disc bulge problem and grade 1 antherolisthesis as diagnosed in MRI and I have severe pain for 5 years. What treatment should I go for? Please suggest.

Anterolisthesis is an abnormal alignment of bones in the spine and usually affects the lower back. It occurs when an upper vertebra slips in front of the one below. Pain is often the first symptom of anterolisthesis. Anterolisthesis is often due to sudden blunt force or fractures. These can be the result of trauma typically experienced in an auto accident or a fall. Save some time to discuss it in detail.

Diffuse annular bulge with posterior annular tear and posterior disc protrusions at l4-5 and l5-s1 levels impinging upon corresponding bilateral traversing and exiting nerve roots. Mild posterior disc bulging at l3-4.

General Physician, Kolkata
Because the annulus has such a limited blood supply, annular tears can take quite a long time to heal on its own — 18 months to two years. The majority of doctors will start with a conservative approach to treatment, prescribing anti-inflammatory medication to relieve the pressure and possibly steroid injections to alleviate the pain. Regular physiotherapy treatments, spinal traction therapy, and physical therapy can also bring relief to individuals suffering from annular tears.  if these conservative treatments are not effective, then surgical treatment may be necessary. Annular tears can be sealed off with a laser procedure to prevent any further injury. Or, a minimally invasive procedure called an endoscopic discectomy can be effective if there’s a painful loose disc fragment in an annular tear. In more severe cases, disc replacement or spinal fusion surgery can replace a damaged disc. There are also some highly advanced treatment options that are in development. For example, using a patient’s stem cells to regenerate their annular fibres. However, these treatments are only used on a case by case basis. If you are experiencing back pain that isn’t getting better with rest and a decrease in activity, then you should see your orthopaedician. Severe annular tears, when left untreated, can lead to more painful conditions, such as a herniated disc. A good treatment plan can relieve your discomfort, return you to your preferred level of activity, and keep your back healthy and pain-free.

I had vitamin d3 deficiency which somehow did not get attention from my side for almost 2 years & I have landed up in few issues with my spine leading to body pain symptoms such as knees, legs, back fingers, shoulder, etc. Severity is more when I get up in the morning. I have directed to arthritis specialist however all arthritis tests were negative & problem did not settle even after Dr. treated me for about 4 months with lubrijointod 1 tablet daily and etova400 (painkiller). Subsequently, I was directed to pain management specialist, who advised to get x-ray & mri done for the spine. And multiple problems were observed related to the spine. 1. X-ray of the thoracolumbar spine: few marginal & few bridging osteophytes appears mildly reduced 2. X-ray of the pelvis with both hips: normal 3. Mri cervical spine: a. Partial fusion of vertebral bodies & right sided facet joints of c4 & c5 verbetre with rudimentary intervening intervertebral disc, suggestive of partial c4/c5 block vertebra b. The mild diffuse posterior bulge of desiccated c3-c4 intervertebral disc c. Mild left posterolateral bulge of dessicated c4-c5 intervertebral disc d. Mild hypertrophy at c5/c6 level 4. Mri -lumbar spine with sacroiliac joints screening: a. Mild left forminal bulge of the partially dessicated l3-l4 intervertebral disc, causing narrowing of the left neural foramen & indenting the left exiting l3 nerve root. B. Same as above for l4-l5. Exiting l4 nerve root c. The mild diffuse posterior bulge of the partially dessicated l5-s1 intervertebral disc, indenting the thecal sac. D. Mild facial arthropathy at l5-s1 intervertebral disc level request your guidance to know what is the exact problem? Is it repairable or I have to carry this as is? I still continue to have the pain. Any treatment would help me? (medicine-allopathy/ayurvedic/homeopathy or message.) I have taken physiotherapy for about 1 month & they had given me @30+ exercises to do on daily basis.

You are having multiple small problems in the spine may be secondary to the degenerative changes in the spine. Only thing is you are only 57 years old and the age-related changes seem to be a little premature. What about your blood work? Having these changes in the spine you will have to concentrate on your blood parameters also.

That is called as lumbar vertebrae. And there are 5 lumbar vertebrae and the 5th lumbar vertebrae is always is located in the lower end where the body weight is taken and it is generally fused with sacral vertebrae. That is where the sciatic nerve passes by and the nerve gets compressed that's the reason you have pain and sensation is disturbed. I have pain in my left side leg. This should be due to the sciatic nerve compression in the right side probably close to your l5 vertebrae. It can also be due to the strain on the left leg, try wearing mcr chappals which would help you to get relieved from pain. Long time pain in foot check with your friend whether he has flat foot that might trigger the pain always and however we treat that may not help. Hot water fermentation will help and that can be done by immersing the foot in hot water. You shall ask your friend to wear mcr chappals.

Treatment is for the condition and not Mr. film report. Some changes can be in asymptomatic persons also. If you do not have any radicular pain or tingling sensation in lower limbs. Stop pregabalin, not needed for long term if the pain subsides, start gentle spinal strengthening exercises. What is your profession?
