What is the normal treatment for severe disc space narrowing L3-4 and L5-S1 with endplate hypertrophic spurring?
My doctor prescribed ibuprofen up to 800 three times daily with caution so as not to cause renal problems. And he advised PT but I can't afford it. Does anyone know what will make this better or what I should avoid doing to worsen it? I am an active 63 year old woman who cleans stalls for my horses daily, lifts heavy hay, etc. Lots of back use, plus I sit too much at computer or sewing machine. I have occasional leg pain, have had sciatica for a long time, and feel really stiff after sitting (forget it for long car rides!! I'm in agony)....I swore it was hips. Don't know if my hips are ok or not, they didn't xray them. Doc says it is lumbar arthritis and spondylosis. Help???? Thank you!!!!!!!!!!
