My X-ray report says 'loss of lumbar lordosis with mild angular focal kyphosis. I'm just20 year old.Will this be chronic and affect rest of my life?

The majority of patients with mild early disc degeneration will do fine with simple conservative treatment and will not have chronic pain. I would recommend further discussion with your physician. ...Read more
