Mri Of Lumbar Spine With Herniated 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

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
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. Myelopathy means involvement of spinal cord, so are we really using the term incorrectly here? Ask your doc about this. ...Read more
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

See a doctor: I assume you have had an MRI to know this. A herniated disc may cause leg pain and numbness, but with medications, physical therapy, injections, the symtpoms may resolve.

Prominent disc space narrowing, bulges, and mild degenerative changes throughout lumbar spine for some years. Spinal decompression? Best opinions pls!
Spinal decompression: Remember, any changes that occur with traction are temporary. Once normal weight bearing is restored, all changes revert to pre-traction state. Inversion tables do exactly the same thing for about $250 total vs. Around $200 per treatment with traction. So if it feels good, it sure beats popping pills! consider a mckenzie pt, or pilates/yoga/piyo as preventative. And don't smoke--accelerates ddd. ...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
