hi 123243254356445 and welcome to the support group -

we are lay people, who suffer from chronic spine issues. we are not professional physicians and cannot answer these types of questions.

what doctors have you seen regarding the results of your MRI? you should see a spine specialist - either a Orthopedic Spine Specialist or Neurosurgeon Spine Specialist - this does not mean surgery but they are the only ones that can read film reports properly and give you an accurate diagnosis along with treatment options. and those treatment options may include pain management and/or physical therapy. Yoga would benefit you but it's always a good idea to get the exercises approved as there are some that can do more harm than good especially if not shown the proper way to do them.

please let us know what you find out~~
