What does narrowing of the left neural foremen secondary to disc osteophyte complex mean? Thankyou.
What is the recommendation for someone with severe left neural foraminal narrowing at l4-5 w/ a 4mm left paracentral protusion. Also noted is moderate ight neural foraminal narrowing?
What does this mean?
moderate left neural foraminal stenosis and abutment of the exiting L4 nerve root
Pain generator: this could be causing the left sided sciatic symptoms. usually need to know more and do an exam to make sense of the pictures. ...Read more

Posterior left disc herniation 6.3x10.5mm impinging on the left s1 nerve root also a degree of narrowing of the left neural foramen impinging L5 nerve?
Disc protrusion: The L5-S1 disc is very susceptible to protrusion since it gets more load than most other lumbar discs. The disc is impinging on the nerve roots as they exits the spinal canal. Your neurologist might suggest conservative approaches like muscle strengthening exercises & physical therapy to help address your pain. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/herniateddisk.html ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
What is moderate to severe left neural foraminal stenosis due to disc osteophyte left subarticular disc extursion w/ cranial and caudal migration?
At c5-c6 small diffuse disc bulge, moderate to severe left neural foraminal stenosis secondary to facet disease?
Question?: I am unsure what your specific question is. If these are the findings on a MRI/CT, the finding can be associated with cervical radiculopathy. The symptoms include pain in the lower neck, shoulder, arm, thumb and index finger. Treatments can range for medications, physical therapy, epidural injections to surgery. A spinal orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon can help decide on the best treatment. ...Read more

See a neurosurgeon to evaluate and treat the low back pain. ...Read more

Disc herniation: Surgical intervention to the c6-c7 disc herniation is recommended or warranted if conservative care management fails to provide any adequate pain relief and/or progression of neurological deterioration. As for hemangioma and mild stenosis at c4, no surgery is recommended. ...Read more

I had MRI cervical spine w&w/o contrast. Impression says: c6-7 protrusion & spondylosis w/mild left neural foraminal compromise & c5-6. Pls explain?
Cervical Spine MRI: The findings identify degeneration of the discs in the cervical spine causing compression of two hole in your spine (c5-6, c6-7). If you are having left arm pain, this may be the cause. Otherwise the findings are a normal progression of spinal wear and tear of a 56 yo spine. Please review the findings with the physician who ordered the MRI or a surgeon specializing in spinal surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Report says: Left sided neural foraminal stenosis with nerve root impingement at the L5-S1 level Is there anything I can do to relieve pain until tx.
A few steps: Even at age 82, you could try some stretching exercises, and even some McKenzie back exercises. Hot soaking in hot tub or bath may alleviate some of the discomfort. Some meds will interact with your warfarin. But you might be able to gain relief from simple OTC meds such as Aleve, (naproxen) ibuprofen, and maybe you could be candidate for epidural steroid injection. ...Read more
