I have back problem. I can't bent forward.  I got disc space narrowed of s5 an s6. Suggest treatment.

Acute treatment: There is no s5 and s6, but a narrowed disc is simply an indication of early/mild disc degneration, which is essentially normal for most patients.

Depending on what is the underlying cause of the pain, if the injections did not help, surgery may be an option. Chronic opioid therapy, with combinations of short acting and long acting meds is an option as well.

I have acne and redness problem on my face, arms n back.Plz suggest something.Hv heard bout Proactiv treatment.Can u please suggest is it effective or nt?

Proactive: Most patients in my practice with acne have tried proactive before they come in to see me. It seems like it tends to work initially, for a few months, then it stops working. Of course, i don't see the patients it keeps working for. It's probably worth a try to start, just be aware you may need to move on to a pharmaceutical grade skin care regimen within a month or two. ...Read more
