There is anterior bulging of disc material. there is a small central posterior and right posterior paracentral protrusion of disc material at the L5-S1 level also present which appears to come in contact with the anterior aspect of the right S1 nerve root. A significant degree of central canal stenosis is demonstrated. no lateral recess of foraminal stenosis is seen at any level.Minimal facet related degenerative changes are present. The conus terminates at the L1-1-2 disc space level. I am having severe lower back pain and shoulder pain, also pain in legs is this normal for just a lumbar muscle sprain or is ther something else going on with my back thank you.
