Re: ...Back pain due to disc desiccation/degeneration...

Impressions of MRI of Lumbar spine taken in March, 2007.
Minimal disc desiccatio/degeneration is identified at the L2-3 and L3-4 levels, mild disc desiccation/degeneration is at the L4-5 level and moderate disc desiccatio/degeneration is at the L5-S1 level. A small broad-based disc bulge without evidence of herniation is at the L4-5 level. Small central focal disc bulge without evidence of herniation is identified at the L5-S1 levels. Facet joint hypertrophy/degeneration is identified bilaterally at the L4-5 and L5-S1 levels. Is there any alternate treatments to surgery?. Much pain and would prefer natural remedy. Please help.
