I am facing low back pain from the last one month. I have attached my MRI report.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Your MRI report (attachment removed to protect patient identity) indicates a disc herniation in the lower vertebral column. This could be the cause of your back pain. Coming to this point, I recommend taking Ibuprofen 400 mg three times daily and a muscle relaxant (Flexeril or Tiocolchiside) for 1 to 2 weeks. It is also important having some rest and avoid prolonged standing up or sitting position or weight lifting. A lumbar brace can help. If your situation does not improve or even worsens, consulting with a spinal surgeon may be needed.
Rest, painkillers, muscle relaxants.Preventive measures:
Lumbar brace, avoid weight lifting.
