What is intervertebral disc disorder with myelopathy lumbar region?

What is intervertebral disc disorder with myelopathy  lumbar region?

Nonsensical: The spinal cord ends at about l-2, and most common disc issues are present at l4-5, and l-5-s-1. In order for a disc to affect the spinal cord, we are talking about a problem in the lower thoracic spine, or a rather unusual high lumbar disc fragment, perhaps.

Is it possible to have cervical radiculopathy and intervertebral disc disorder with myelopathy cervical region?

Is it possible to have cervical radiculopathy and intervertebral disc disorder with myelopathy cervical region?

The lumbar part of the spine is the low back. It is made up of five bones (most of the time) stacked one on top of the other. They are connected by disks, facet joints, and ligaments.
