    Hello Dr,

    I am having lower back and neck pain for the past 2 months. However I feel the pain while sitting but not much while walking. Also I feel burning kind of feel on both of my feet if I stand continuously for more than 10 mins without move.
    My job profile is something like I have to sit and do on computer for appx 8 hours per day and I have been doing this for around 8 years.

    My L.SPINE AP & C.SPINE AP VIEWS X Ray
    REPORT indicates:
    Uncal joints appear normal. Vertebral heights appear normal. Upturned L5 noted. Pedicles appear
    intact. Disc spaces are intact. Spinous processes are in midline.

    My L.SPINE AP & C.SPINE LAT view X Ray

    REPORT :
    Pre-vertebral soft tissue normal. Spondylotic changes with marginal osteophytes noted. Uncal and
    facet joints appear normal. Lumbar spinal curves appear intact. Marginal osteophytes seen. Disc spaces
    are intact.

    I havent started any medication yet.

    Awaiting your valuable advice

    Thanks in advice

    The X-ray reports note typical degenerative disc disease of both your cervical as well as lumbar spines. The basic start of care is with physical therapy or chiropractic care. Find a well respected therapist or chiropractor who involves you with self-directed exercises so that once you are discharged from care, you can continue to treat yourself.

    Exercise is the cornerstone for rehabilitation. Many times, simply stretching and strengthening the spine will relieve the symptoms. Surgery is for incapacitating and non-treatable symptoms (see website under “When to have lower back surgery” or When to have neck surgery” to understand this concept).
