What dose mild degenerative changes with disc desiccation c3-c4, c4-c5and c5-c6 and c6-c7 and reversal of cervical lordosis with disc desiccation mean?
Hello sir... I have MRI of cervical spine.. My report is mild straighting of cervical curvature.. Complete block of C4 and C5 vertebrae?
It appears that : The slight straightening may either suggest that your body was positioned in such a way that this came about or reflecting some muscle spasm. The block vertebra is a congenital or something you were born with which may also be a sign of other possible congenital issues in your spine or body so see a spine specialist if symptoms persist ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Cause of backpain?
Mri findings say acquired spondylolisthesis and cervical spinal stenosis with myelopathy . I am in a great amount of pain. What next ?
Impressions: 1) broad based central disc protusion at l4-l5 level. 2) mild degeneration changes in cervical and lower lumbar spine.
Not unusual: What you have listed under the impressions seems to be a report from an MRI scan or ct scan of the spine. In a 26 year old, these are not unusual findings. The disc bulge refers to an outpouching of the l4-5 disc. It is not frankly ruptured or herniated. This goes along with the degenerative changes you mention, which are often referred to also as arthritic changes of the spine. ...Read more

Hi, : Hi, what are your concerns/specific questions? These results discribed are disk disease/degenerative changes, there is nothing described to tell of how sever eit is so it is difficult to know what the extent is without seeing the images. The most important thing concerning the MRI is to make sure the finding are consistent with your symptoms in order to tell if it is of any concern. As we age, most of us have the abnormalities as described in your report, but the importance is deciding if this is the cause of your symptoms. This should be done by your doctor. Let me know if i can be of further assistance. Dr khoury usradreview.Com [email protected] ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
3mm herniated in both T6-T7 and T7-T8 with mild spinal cord compression . Also some of my thoracic disks are degenerated. Is this serious?
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

An : An opening that a nerve exits the spine through is called a foramen. You have a left and right foramen at every disc level. Stenosis is another word for narrowing. "severe right c5-6 foraminal stenosis" could pinch your c6 nerve root resulting in right arm pain, numbness, tingling and weakness. Depending on the severity of your symptoms you may need to see a spine surgeon. ...Read more
What are the chances of full mobility & work return after acdf & pcdf w/ instrumentation surgery c1-t1 with mild nerve damage, and limited mobility.
That depends on : Several factors such as your occupation and education level as to a return to work-sedentary or desk work v one with a lot of physical activity--does mobility mean getting around or refer to neck motion range which would be limited by 50% with that extent of fusion. "mild" nerve damage may or may not also play a role depending on exactly what you mean. Speak to the surgeon concerning outcomes. ...Read more
Help with interruption of Xray for neck and head pain. Xray reads: there is some uncovertebral spurring at the C4-5 & C5-6 levels. Meaning? Treatment?
Potentially normal : uncovertebral spurring is synonymous with degenerative disc disease/'arthritic ' changes, and is certainly seen commonly by late 40's. While this can lead to chronic neck pain and cervicogenic headache, it is more likely a 'normal' finding. Treatment with physical therapy and neck strengthening exercises is often the initial management. ...Read more
What does Degenerative change,greatest at C5/C6 with moderate spinal canal and bilateral moderate to severe neural foraminal compromise mean?
Foraminal compromise: Implies the 6th cervical nerve root may be compressed ( leading to potential muscle weakness in the upper arm and or radicular pain down to the thumb or index finger ) Further information is needed ( exam findings ) to sort out the significance of both this and the central canal stenosis ( I would discuss this with your neurologist or neurosurgeon ) ...Read more

Spondylosis and stenosis as well as encroachment on intervertebral foramina at c5/c6 and c6/c7 levels w/ significant cord edema with narrowing most prominent in the saggital diameter. Do i need surg ?
What Surgery will I need for all of this located C5-C6. Severe cervical spondylosis with several disc bulges with disc herni. 7mm C5-C6 and 2-3mm at ?
Varies: Traditionally either an anterior cervical discectomy or an artificial disc replacement are the surgical treatment options. If you have a lot of arthritis in your facet joints, this would contraindicate the disc replacement. There are also nonoperative options that some patients respond to as well. Don't hesitate to be seen. ...Read more
I have multi level uncodiscarthrosis, grad i-ll canal stenosis with facet arthrosis. Uncophytosis and slight cord flattening at c2. Could you explain?
I don't think you : Have it exactly as on the report, but it appears the report is indicating that you have arthritis, including bone spurs in many levels of your cervical spine -- including your disc space level, uncovertebral joint level (these can narrow the area where your nerves pass, ; push on nerves). It also indicates you some narrowing of the spinal canal. Go see a spine surgeon if you are having symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
