    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.

    Dear Dr,

    Thanks a lot for your response.I have consult a Dr yesterday, he told me that I have to correct my posture and he suggest some exercise.
    Do you think this is the begining stage and can it be rectify by exercise or I have to go any surgery.

    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).
