Spine and Back Health
Xray findings:levoconvex lumbar rotoscoliosis
The above are the findings of my recent xray. It additionally says there is a slight separtation of two segments of the coccyx which are both well defined, there could be recent injury to the coccyx. Clinical correlation recommended. Also, mild facet arthrosis at L4-5 and L5-S1. No fracture or malalignment seen. Also, mild disc space narrowing at L4-5 and L5-s1. I am currently seeing a Chiro. is there any other form of treatment? I am a great deal of pain and unable to work. Any help?
Unfortunately diagnosis can not be made by reports or over the internet. Some of the noted findings such as that about the coccyx can be entirely normal and are unlikely a cause of severe low back pain. I would recommend seeing an Orthopaedic spine surgeon in your area for further work up.
