Bulging Disc C5 C6 Treatment
Wear and tear can cause degeneration in the vertebral column, and cause discs to deteriorate. The supportive basket, nucleus fibrosis develops small tears. A bulge is minimal perhaps a few millimeters, and is clinically insignificant, but additional disc displacement such as protrusion or herniation may compress ...Read more
Ongoing pain in neck and trapped nerve. After having a mri and xray it has been confirmed bulging disc between c5 c6. Surgery next option?
Cervical spine surge: Surgery should be your last option. More than 90% of damaged discs heal by themselves over time. For ongoing nerve pain and neck pain , you should get a cervical epidural steroid injection done by a qualified and experienced pain physician under x-ray guidance. Also start physical therapy as soon as you can to relieve muscular spasm. ...Read more
What does this mean? L-5 s-1 there is central disc protrusion which contacts the thecal sac and bilateral facet degenerative change thickening flavum
Disc & Facet Issues: Looks like by the verbage you gave, your MRI suggests that you have disc herniation at L5/S1. "Central" just means in the middle of the spinal canal,"bilateral facet degenerative change thickening flavum" suggests arthritis of the facet joint and the ligament that protects the spine is thickened due to that arthritis. Protrusion is just another name for a herniation. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
X-ray results showed- advanced L5-S1 degenerative disc disease, moderate facet in lower lumbar spine, L5-S1 4mm retrolistnesis and moderate sclerosis ?
Worn down: L5-S1 is the lowest motion segment in the spine. The MRI shows that level has become "worn down" leading to degeneration of the disc and the facet joints, sclerosis, and a slight slippage (retro listless) of one vertebrae on the other. Don't hesitate to be seen. Many good treatment options available. ...Read more
Do I need surgery for a Bulging disc compressing on thec sac, I have intermittent nerve pain in legs ?
Bulging disc: Just having a bulging disc dose not mean surgery. Your pain is intermittent only - what matters is are there ant other features (weakness, sensory deficit etc...) and how bad the pain is in terms of what you can and cannot do. ...Read more
Post fusion 2009: now l4-5 right facet joint arthrosis, severe neural foriminal stenosis with some compression. Surgery needed?
Two disc herniations 1 pinching C8 ddd canal stenosis and severe carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands. Which is causing severe hand numbness 3yrs ?
Likely carpal tunnel: Both have overlap within the hands depending upon the distribution. MRI is necessary of cervical spine and in many cases if distribution is not distinct, further an EMG/Nerve conduction study to delineate. In most cases however, it is more likely the carpal tunnel is the culprit. Consultation/examination by a neurosurgeon would be most appropriate for diagnosis. ...Read more

L3-l5 no disk disease, minor degenerative facet change, no impingement. L5-s1 no disk disease, bilateral degenerative facet change no impingement. Mean?
Back pain: You are describing low back arthritis in terms of an MRI of the lumbar spine. Low back pain can be generated from degenerated or torn discs, nerve impingement from herniated discs, and inflammed or degenerated joints (facet) that connect one segment of the spine with an adjacent segment. Reducing or eliminating low back pain involves physical therapy, injections, and possibly surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Great Question: Unfortunately, there is no good literature to give exact amount of time that a patient might expect to receive relief from any type of epidual steroid injection. Caudals are usually done for spinal stenosis or complex fused spines fo relief of pressure on nerve structures. No two spines are alike. They are like snow flakes and fingerprints and so different are patient responses. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Mri- c5-6 there is apparent central bony bar abutting the ventral cervical cord. What does this mean?
May mean nothing : The bar is a bone spur. Caused by disc degeneration at that level. It is a common finding and may not mean anything clinically. The important question is whether or not there is actual spinal cord compression. Per your question, it sounds as if the spinal canal is narrowed a bit (stenosis), but there is not any spinal cord compression. Frequently, pt and traction can be of benefit. ...Read more

Avoid heavy lifting: After this type of surgery you want to follow the directions of your surgeon. You should avoid heavy lifting and jumping or doing any activity that can cause a large increase in pressure on your back. Physical therapists are trained to help with pain and to assist with recovery. They will be very careful not to cause harm. Just follow their directions for home activities. ...Read more
