Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
The back Xrays are done to look for any arthritis, or herniated disc in your lowerspine.
Borderline refers to you have arthritis and have herniated disc.
This causes pressure on the nerves supplying the affected area of your back.
The best treatment option will be to start Physical therapy to help with lower back muscle strengthening, releasing presure on the neves and reducing inflammation in your back.
This will also improve our mobility in general.
The pain can be managed with anti inflammatory medications like Naproxen and a musclerelaxant like Cyclobenzaprine.
Please do not worry too much --this can be seen commonly at your age.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
I am Dr Basu experienced in Spine Diseases.
