I haven't received a report yet. Hence my reason for asking. So you see nothing here that could cause severe back pain and flexibly issues?

My husband also suffers leg pain. Has done for over a year. Is it possibly its muscular? He has been referred to an orthopedic but sounds like that won't help.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

The lower disc has some degeneration.

This can cause nerve root imflammation.

The treatment at this point is likely to be physical therapy.
