Back MRI: The use of MRI in nowdays practice is way over than needed. For back issues, it is only good if surgery is considered, the diagnosis is unclear or there is suspicion for malignancy. If you know you have sciatica, conservative measures would have to be exhausted before MRI is considered unless history and physical suggest another reason for your pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It is an early manifestation of degenerative disc disease/arthritis. Very common, likely not to cause symptoms as an isolated finding. No treatment per se, no follow up if this is the only finding. ...Read more
My current MRI of cervical spine shows reactive endplate changes and large central disc extrusion at c3/c4 indenting on spinal cord. Should I Worry?

Do not do repetitive lifting and bending (housework/yardwork) until a neurosurgeon sees you because the weakness and numbness could worsen with these activities. Avoid contact sports or jarring exercises (running) too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
