While there is no cure, you can slow it down with strengthening core muscles, maintain a normal weight, and avoid tobacco products. Focus on occupations that do not require manual labor. People who do heavy lifting, bending, and stooping usually retire 10 years earlier than desk jobs. ...Read more

What does this mean MRI results c3-c4: left uncovertebral spurring results in moderate-to-severe stenosis of the left neural foramina.
Possible impingement: It means that degenerative changes at that level are causing bone formation that is narrowing the opening where the C4 nerve root exits the canal. This can cause compression of the nerve root causing pain in that nerve's distribution (cervical radiculopathy). Your doctor can determine if you have pain that corresponds to that nerve root. ...Read more

Talk to your doc about treatment options. ...Read more

I have a 9mm cyst inside neural foramina at t1-t2 and my ring and pinky fingers are going numb a lot. I have to see a neurosurgeon- how will they fix?
How will they fix?: The first question is whether this "cyst" is actually causing your symptoms. What you describe could also be an ulnar neuropathy at the elbow. Has that been ruled out? The last thing you want is an unnecessary back operation that "fixes" nothing. A good surgeon is one who knows when NOT to operate. Stop trying to 2nd-guess the doctors & make sure your diagnosis is correct. That's key. ...Read more
