What test did you have and what did your doctor say about that?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did an X-ray, the doctor says i should exercise and loose some weight regarding my stiff back. in my peppery tip, he says it should be belanitis and I should continue applying the lamissil. What do you suggest?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Is there any redness still on your penis and a plain x-ray doesn't really evaluate a disk problem?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there is no redness, jus that the part that is peppery kinda feels different a bit and has a little white patch just under the hood of the penis. What test should i do for the disc?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Did the doctor feel your prostate and do a urinalysis?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he didn't, i have an appointment for that tomorrow.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

And what exactly did he have to say about the back pain?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he just said is should loose some weight and come back to the prostate and urinalysis tomorrow
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
my back becomes stiff after walking a for like 5-10mins
feels better after a massage. When i feel the pain after standing for more than 10mins, the pain generates from both sides of the lower back.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Well I'd still check out your prostate and if that's clear you need an MRI of you lumbar spine to check for a disk problem

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
can the disc cause the stiff back? i will make sure an MRI is done tomorrow.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Yes it certainly can

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what can probably be the cure if there is a disc problem?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Cure's not the right word but most often it doesn't require surgery--just the right physical therapy

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
when i get the MRI results, can i send it to you via an upload to review, and what kind of physical therapy will it require?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Sure, and if there's a problem I'd refer you to a physiatrist--a physical medicine and rehabilitation MD specialist for therapy

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what kind of physical therapy does this MD specialist do? just curious...
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Hands on therapy--spinal manipulation, ultrasound, massage therapy among other things
