Ans: Hi Rdy,
While we understand that these are your MRI findings it may or may mot symptomatically reflect. A detailed history of your current symptoms will be required to plan out a treatment which can help you. I’d advise you to visit a near by physiotherapy department with your files so that they can evaluate your condition and check your strength and power and design an appropriate treatment plan for you.
