Hi there. I am new and so glad I found this site. I have MRI results and if ok will post on here in hopes I can get some help. I have friends that are both doctors/physiotherapists and chiropractors so as you can see the advice has been all over the place.
I am a 43 year old woman (active) with a 2 year old toddler. During pregnancy while excercising I hurt my back?? No idea how as was doing walking treadmill however hurt I did. I could not walk last 2 months of pregnancy due to the dragging of one leg due to acute pain.
My results as of June 2007 with a new CT scan set for late this summer are as follows:
IMPression: Minor posterior disc bulge at the L3-4 levels as described above. Mild to moderate facet arthropathy involving the L4-5 and L5-S1 left facet joints.
In the above explanation it is said there is minor disc bluging with no evidence of herniation or central stenosis. No evedence of nerve root compression. No herniation, central stenosis or nerve root compression is appreciated at the other levels of the lumbosacral spine.
I had been ok the past year but tripped over some toys and hit the floor hard on both knees. Took some time (2 months) to be able to be on my knees and since then, badda boom my back is back in this awful condition.
I have done my physio excercises but to no avail.
