Degenerative changes: What you are describing are common degenerative changes in your cervical spine. The changes can cause pressure on the nerve roots in your neck and can cause pain weakness and numbness in you neck and shoulder. This can be associated with a radiculopathy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not meaningful: These findings on MRI of c spine are simply indicators of arthritic phenomenon with aging or wear and tear. These may or may not clinically corelate with the clinical symptoms or signs of a patient. Examining and ordering physician is in best position to tell if these findings corelate with your symptoms. See a neurologist. ...Read more

Sounds like a fairly: Typical read for a male over 50 years old. Many findings are normal for age and sex as described here. They may not be related to symptoms or may cause symptoms. That is why a careful history and physical exam must be done in conjunction with imaging studies to fully assess the issues presented by the patient. ...Read more
Lumbosacral spondylosis with disc degeneration, mild posterior disc bulge at l3-4level indenting thecal sac, lateral canals & neural foraminae, treatment?
DDD=arthritis: Arthritis/spondylosis of the disc is ddd. Like wrinkles of skin, ddd happens to everyone to some degree. It starts to be evident on MRI late teens and early 20's, progressing with age. Ddd/arthritis does not = pain. So don't let the diagnosis bother you. Treatment is specific to the pain. If back pain, nonsurgical. Nsaids/tylenol, pt/core strength. For sciatica, above plus nerve root injections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is neural forminal hypertrophic vhanges of the ligamentum flavum bilataterally bulging of intervertebral disc and facet arthropathy?
Anatomy: Not enough space here to write. If you google these things, you will find nice pictures to explain it all. Foramen is the "hole" in the bone where your nerve roots exit. Facets are the joints that hold vertebrae together. Ligamentum flavum is a ligament within the bones that runs down the spinal canal. All of these problems you mention can lead to back pain and nerve related pain. ...Read more

3 areas of arthritis: Tricompartmental means three compartment arthritis. You're knee has three compartments; the medial compartment, the lateral compartment, and the patellofemoral compartment. Therefore all three of these compartments have wear down of the cartilage surfaces which is what osteoarthritis means. Osteophytes are bone spurs growing off the edges of the bone common with osteoarthritis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Xray shows mild multilevel degenerative disc disease with multilevel anterior endplate osteophytes. What does this mean?
Arthritis of spine: The end plates on either side of each vertebral bone articulate with the end plates of the ones above and below it. These can become enlarged over time with degenerative arthritis or following trauma. Eventually the space between the vertebrae becomes narrowed and pain sensitve structures like spinal nerves get pinched. ...Read more
Cervical spine MRI shows Disc osteophyte complex & facet & ligamentous hypertrophy from C5-C7, effacing & narrowing the thecal sac to 8.4mm. Explain..
Spinal MRI- multilevel disk & facet degen. scar tissue encasing S1,roots, Bulges &herniations, flat vent. dural sac, narrow foramin/spinal. Bad pain?
Degenerative disease: These findings may be the cause of your back pain. But how to take care of the pain is a whole other concern. You may do well with a combination of pain pills, muscle relaxants, physical therapy, and pain patches or liniments. Rheumatologists and orthopedists can give injections after doing tests to pinpoint the location and mechanism of the pain, such as pinched nerves. Lastly operation if need ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
