is the subluxation or slippage of one vertebral body over another, usually with the more superior body slipping forward relative to the body below. This can be due to to etiologies such as ligamentous laxity or an abnormality of the bone(spondylolysis). If mild, it may be asymptomatic. If severe or unstable, it could cause kinking/compression of the spinal cord ...Read more

Pinched nerve: Cervical spondylosis is arthritis in the neck. Foraminal stenosis means narrowing of the space where the nerves exit the spinal canal, in this case caused by bone spurs from arthritis. After they leave the neck these nerves form the three major nerves of the arm, controlling feeling and movement. Stenosis can cause pain, weakness, numbness or tingling in the arm or hand. High grade = severe. ...Read more

Can be: ? Whether cervical scoliosis, arthritis & lumbar DDD are related to fibromyalgia, FM. One of the multiple co-factors seemingly co-causal of FM is global muscle atrophy & weakness, leading to widespread myalgia & tender points in spastic muscles repetitively stressed/injured by gravitational forces. Painful skeletal derangements can incite sedentariness with loss of muscle mass/tone. Gravity Rules. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Grade I spondylolisthesis and degenerative diffusely bulging disc at l5-s1 with bilateral foraminal stenosis, what to do?
Depends: Grade I L5S1 spondylolisthesis and bilateral foraminal stenosis- no intervention needed if no referable symptoms. Otherwise, physical exam including neurologic function to rule out neurologic deficits.

X-ray revealed moderate upper lumbar scoliosis and osteophytes in lumbar vertebrae. Possible cause of severe low back and hip pain? Treatment options?
Early arthritis: Not sure why a 34yo has these problems. Your description of X-ray sounds like back spasm causing some local splinting and curvature,not classic scoliosis. Osteophytes typically seen in degenerative arthritis. Do you have autoimmune disease? Lupus? Psoriasis? Rheumatoid? ...Read more

Spondylolisthesis: This is an MRI report of the low back which shows moderate narrowing of the spinal canal at the lumbar 4/5 level. In addition, there is a small slip with instability at the lumbar 4/5 level. This is arthritis which often causes pain in the low back with bending and stooping. The pain may radiate into the calf, ankle or big toe. There may be numbness too. See a neurosurgeon for treatment. ...Read more

What is the prognosis for lumbar stenosis with bulging discs at l4/l5 and l3/l4 with spinal cord effacement and bilateral facet joint hypertrophy.
Mixed: Facet hypertrophy is a common change as people age; the amount of joint enlargement is more important than the fact that it is present. Stenosis is an issue if it is symptomatic. Weight control and exercise can help. Surgery can help in cases that don't respond to other treatment. The spinal cord usually ends at l1-2, so if it truly goes down to l5, there are other issues that need to be addressed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Your question: got cut off, but a strain is a muscular injury, disc space narrowing is a manifestation of degenerative disc disease(analagous to arthritic change), and spondylolysis is a congenital or acquired defect in the lamina, part of the posterior aspect of the vertebra, which can potentially cause pain, instability, and accelerated degenerative arthritis. ...Read more
