Displacement Of Lumbar Intervertebral Disc
And the question IS?: I'm afraid your question mark should really be a comma if anything. I'm not catching your drift. Are you asking for a list of symptoms associated with IVD disease without myelopathy....or if one could even exist without the other? Perhaps, you're copying something out of a report? Revamp your question and send through again. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Spinal discs are located between the vertebrae (blocks of bone) of the spine (expect the upper 2). They act like shock absorbers and are also important in allowing our spines to be flexible. They have a tough outer rim made of strong fibers and a fleshier shock-absorbing tissue in the center. These "shocks" can wear out with routine life activities, age and injuries. They can ...Read more
Encroachment: Any condition limiting space for the nerves causes encroachment. A herniated disc would cause encroachment. A bone spur would also cause. Encroachment does not imply pressure, or severity, or the presence of symptoms. ...Read more
Lumbosacral spondylosis with disc degeneration, mild posterior disc bulge at l3-4level indenting thecal sac, lateral canals & neural foraminae, treatment?
DDD=arthritis: Arthritis/spondylosis of the disc is ddd. Like wrinkles of skin, ddd happens to everyone to some degree. It starts to be evident on MRI late teens and early 20's, progressing with age. Ddd/arthritis does not = pain. So don't let the diagnosis bother you. Treatment is specific to the pain. If back pain, nonsurgical. Nsaids/tylenol, pt/core strength.

What is neural forminal hypertrophic vhanges of the ligamentum flavum bilataterally bulging of intervertebral disc and facet arthropathy?
Anatomy: Not enough space here to write. If you google these things, you will find nice pictures to explain it all. Foramen is the "hole" in the bone where your nerve roots exit. Facets are the joints that hold vertebrae together. Ligamentum flavum is a ligament within the bones that runs down the spinal canal. All of these problems you mention can lead to back pain and nerve related pain. ...Read more
Symptom Vs Cause: A disc herniation causes sciatica, which is a symptom of back & leg pain caused by a disc herniation or narrowing where the nerve exits the spine. A disc herniation is a outpouching of the disc from its normal place into the spinal canal or on the nerve and can be a source of pain in the back or down the leg, . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unfortunately....no: As an osteopathic physician, whose practice includes "manipulative therapy, " it is my opinion that spinal stenosis is not correctable with any form of manipulation or physical medicine. This is unfortunately a surgical condition, and i would professionally recommend a consultation with a neurosurgeon, vs. An orthopedist. Your condition requires more expertise, and your end result will be better. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
MRI of my Cervical Spine
There is disc degenerative changes with associated impingement of the thecal sac , exit neuroforaminal encroachment.
MRI result?: So- what does this mean? It is common for MRI of the c-spine to show degenerative changes. Impingement of the thecal sac is not normally concerning. It is unclear what is meant by "exit neuroforaminal encroachment". Was there encroachment or not? If it is there, this normally means nerve root encroachment, which can cause symptoms that affect the arms. ...Read more
Semantics: A ruptured disc is indicative of a tear in the annulus fibrosis which contains a gelatinous substance, and the rupture sticks out beyond a few mm. If the disc rupture is large enough, it could contact nerve roots or even the spinal cord, and as it gets closer, it is termed encroachment. ...Read more
