Doctor insights on:
C3-4Right paracentral protrusion of disc osteophyte complex effacing thecal sac C5-C6 Right uncovertebral arthropathy w/mild right neuroforimal steno?
Yes!: What's the question? B sure U R Cing a spine surgeon, he/her is the 1 2 ask.
Degenerative change: The uncovertebral joint is an interphase of adjacent cervical spine vertebrae located in either side and adjacent to the disc space and opening for the nerve root (neuroforamen). Degenerative changes of this joint is referred to as uncovertebral arthropathy.
What does all this mean? C2-3 small disk osteophyte complex with ventral thecal sac deformity. C4-5 disk osteophyte complex with ventral cord flattening. C 5-6 Facet arthropathy and uncovertebral hypertrophy is severe right neural foraminal stenosis. Face
Degenerative: Basically refers to degenerative (aging) changes of the spine. Disk/osteophyte refers to bone spur and/or disc protrusion, and facet/uncovertebral hypertrophy refers to arthritis of the joints at the back part (facets) and sides (uncovertebral) of the vertebrae. Ventral thecal sac deformity and ventral cord flattening refer to slight pressure on the spinal cord. Stenosis refers to pinched nerve.See 1 more doctor answer
MY MRI: C2-C3-C4 -C5 mild bilateral facet arthropathy, .Disc bulge C5-C6, L2-L3 mild uncovertebral hypertrophy, spinal meningeal cyst S2-S3. lots pain?
Not enough info: Your MRI finding in the cervical, lumbar and thoracic spine sound like typical MRI findings in middle age individuals. Neck and back pain are very common in your age group and can be seen with and without these findings. What you described does not mean you should or should not have pain. Moreover, not knowing where your pain is, it makes it harder to help you.
Something similar: That is not a term I have heard of. Who uses that? Charcot foot is a deformed foot. It is a result of numbness and weakness affecting the foot, which leads to ligament injury and arthropathy (joint deformity). People who have inherited neuropathy tend to have this when they are never treated. One kind of inherited neuropathy is Charcot Marie Tooth disease.See 1 more doctor answer
Joint pain: Acromioclavicular arthropathy is a fancy way of saying that the joint where your collar bone meets your shoulder is hurting you. Possible old injury? Overuse? You should talky to your doc about possible treatments which will likely include anti-inflammatory meds as well as possible steroids, either systemic or injectable.
Yes: The key is early treatment. Whereas some patients may have mild psoriatic arthritis that responds to an anti-inflammatory medication or to methotrexate, many patients have more severe disease that causes debilitating pain, stiffness, and swelling. For these patients, excellent help is available in the form of humira, remicade, enbrel, or simponi (golimumab). These four rx can dramatically improve psoriasis.See 1 more doctor answer
See below: Chronic over a long time uaually about 6 weeks sub acute recent or within 3 weeks problems with a joint.
Not Serious: Meaning its not life threatening, however you will have pain. Recommend working on your core to improve pressure in your spine, however if this is not helping enough you may consider steroid injections into the facet joint or even radiofrequency ablation of the nerve to that joint for longer lasting relief. Some people have gotten good relief from PRP or stem cell therapy options as well.See 2 more doctor answers
Arthritis: Facet arthropathy is arthritis at multiple levels. There are joints in the spine where the bones articulate and can develop bone spurs and cause the clicking with pain typically with extension. I would consider seeing a pain/spine specialist to see if facet injections or radio frequency ablation would be helpful for you.See 2 more doctor answers
Facet Arthropathy: Could be facet arthropathy/arthritis. There are joints in the spine where the bones articulate and can develop bone spurs and cause the clicking with pain typically with extension.

Facet Issues: Facet Arthropathy is an arthritic condition of the facet joints that causes pain. Facet Syndrome generally is due to pain from the facet joints but not associated with arthritis, typically seen in younger patients with whiplash injuries of the neck or extension based injuries on the back.See 1 more doctor answer
Less likely: Less likely caused by a fall, but certainly worsened by a fall. Facet arthtitis is usually caused by disc space narrowing, allowing the facets joints inappropriate movement. This causes secondary osteoarthritis of the facet joints. Any fall would invovle multiple levels, so I believe unlikely.See 1 more doctor answer
