,osteopathic manipulation (manual manipulation),Heat and/or ice therapy,Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ,Oral steroids ,An epidural (cortisone) injection. Consult orthopedic surgeon with report.
Hi, the attachment u have posted is x ray report not an MRI report. But still the first line of treatment is conservative management with rest and analgesics. If no relief even after 3 -6 months, consider surgery.
