3 Mm Disc Protrusion
I need help understanding my MRI. C7-T1: 3 mm posterior central disc protrusion contacts the ventral spinal cord without significant deformity.
What is the difference between a herniated disc a disc protrusion and disc extrusion. And which is most serious if the three?
Big difference: Disc Protrusion is when the distance between the edges of the disc herniation is less than the distance between the edges of the base. Disc Extrusion is when the distance between the edges of the disc material is greater than the distance at the base. Disc herniation may vary in severity from case to case.
After paracentral disc protrusion at l5 s1 level inMri after three weeks rest/medication pain is almost negligible what is best treatment going forwad?
Do your lumbar: Strengthening exercises to increase your paraspinal muscle tone and durability, which in the long term will help strengthen your back against trauma and/or recurrence of symptoms. Physical therapy is always a good answer for vertebral problems. I would make sure I do my back exercises everyday for at least 15-20 mins, and avoid situations where you may have to strain your L5-S1 disc.
In august, I was diagnosed with a th7/8 rightside disc protrusion (2, 4 mm). Is it possible to apply osonetherapy? Can the SM system help?
Plz, t11-t12 broad-based central disc protrusion, it measures about 4x18 mm in size. The thecal sac is flattened and deformed. Ap dimenesion of sac 7 mm?
Spine Specialist: You may be a candidate for an epidural steroid injection to relieve this pain. Also some surgeons may do surgery if needed. Lastly you could consider a percutaneous discectomy since it is less invasive than surgery however you do need to be the best candidate.See 1 more doctor answer
What does this mean? A 13mm transverse annular tear w/disc protrusion extends 3.5 mm dorsal from the vertebral body end plate?
Mri results. There is a single nonspecific 3 mm focus of T2hyperintensesignal, Small left paracentral disc protrusion at T6-T7 and small rightparacen?
Assumption: I gather you describe an MRI of thoracic spine with presence of some discogenic abnormalities. The T2 lesion though would not be caused unless the disc is compressing the spinal cord. The findings require further evaluations, and more testing may result in better understanding. You may benefit from having a neurologist analyze all of this.
Is surgery recommend for this & what kind? C5-C6 Large right paracentral disc protrusion seen, which extends 6 mm into the central canal. There's more
Yes surgery.: 6 mm disc herniation in the cervical spine is a giant disc. Therefore, more likely than not you would be symptomatic with bad neck and arm pain and numbness. So, if you have these symptoms AND if you have failed all conservative care, I would recommend anterior cervical discectomy and fusion at C5-6. If you have weakness, I would recommend surgery even if you did not have conservative care.
I have 2 mm of subluxation in my neck with a mild disc bulge but no disc protrusion. What's causing this?
No cause: This is not an abnormal finding or considered a problem but often a normal finding on a MRI -disc bulges are considered normal findings and cause no symptoms as do small subluxations as yours. Many findings seen on a MRI are usually not the source of pain and should be correctly assessed with a comprehensive clinical evaluation by a trained professional
Generalized disc bulge with right posterior paracentral type of disc protrusion of L4/L5 I.V disc, canal area 112.11sq. Mm?
Disc protrusion: From your question, it sounds like you have a focal right paracentral (meaning to the right of midline) disc protrusion (disc poking out) superimposed on a general disc bulge of the disc located between the L4 and L5 lumbar vertebral bodies, that pokes out into the central spinal canal by 1.2 x 1.1 cm. I'm not sure what your question is.
I have L5-S1 para central disc protrusion 6.1 mm. My leg pain gets worse in winters or sleeping in A.C! Why does it happen. How may I avoid it?
How bad is 6.1 mm para central dehydrated disc protrusion compressing left nerve root at L5 S1 for a 22 years old? I cant play hockey & tennis now
Radiological Studies: And their meaning should be discussed with the physician who orders them.
In my opinion: I consider this to be an asymptomatic incidental finding it should be treated with reassurance
It can affect any --: Gender and the usual age group that get it is probably from 15-70 yrs, . I am sure other authorities would cite our figures.See 1 more doctor answer
30s and older: However typically can be seen at any age depending on reason of pain. But generally seen in older patients and typically those with high levels of activity at their job like manual labor and athletes even.
30s and older: Any age but the older you are the more likely this will occur.
Herniated disk: Can irritate nearby nerves and result in pain, numbness and weakness. There are 2 modalities for treatment: conservative and surgical. Conservative consist of patient education, physical therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and pain-medications. This modality relieves symptoms in 9 out of 10 people with a herniated disk.
