MRI results

Hi all, I'm a 22 year old female, former competitive ballroom dancer and runner. I recently underwent a spine MRI and double hip MRI. The results are as follows: mild degenerative changes in the SI joints bilaterally, mild disc space narrowing at l5-s1, mild straightening of the lumbar lordosis w/o acute fracture or subluxation, gentle lumbar scoliotoic curvature convex left centered at l3, t12-l1 disc protrusion/mild disc space narrowing
My hips:
possible R labral degeneration vs partial undersurface tearing, cartilage thinning anterior zone R hip, adductor tendonopathy

    Ev25, Welcome to Spine Health!! There are no medical professionals on this forum side of the site. Therefore, no one is capable or permitted to provide any type of medical advice. This includes any analysis, interpretation or advice based on any diagnostic tests.
    It is very difficult for anyone to respond when we do not have enough information to go on. 
    When did this first start? 
    What type of doctors have you seen? Any other diagnostic tests other than MRI?
    What meds are you currently on? 
    What is your doctors plan of treating you? What were his conclusions of the MRI?
    If these questions were answered it would help others that might have the same condition to answer.
    Hope to hear from you soon, I would like to know what is going on.

    The pain started about 2 years ago in my right hip. I got PT and it started getting better then it got worse. It pretty much went away in the summer and appeared again last October. I have been unable to do much (I get tired very quickly/sore) for the last few months. I have a dull ache in my right hip since October. The orthopedist concluded that my t12-l1 was from dance and her major concern are my hips. The doctor referred me to a PT and another specialist for hips. I'm kind of nervous about these results though.

    Especially since you are so young, I would be nervous too. But most words used were mild.
     If PT helped before maybe it will help again. But you are seeing doctors about this now and that is very important.
    Finding out early about what is going on can prevent further damage.  
    When is your next appointment? What do you do at home to relieve the pain? 
    Please keep us posted.
