Disc Herniation compressing thecal sac and nerve roots.
Im a 16 year old boy. Im a footballer(soccer player) and theatre artist. Recently I had a lot of knee pain and then back pain too. When I had an MRI done, the MRI scan showed that I have a Posterocentral subligamentous disc herniation at L5-S1 compressing the thecal sac and nerve roots in the lateral recess. Is it a major problem? Will I heal fully? If yes how long? When can I start playing football(soccer) again? What treatment is advisable?
