Have had back pain for quite some time and now have numbness in foot. MRI in below. Any information or comments on this MRI and treatments would be greatly appriciated.
At l5-s1 there is moderatley diminished disc height and signal. There is a contained disc extrusion at this level which impresses upon the anterior thecal sac and right sided foramen. This contained fragment measures 7mm ap diameter x 15 mm transverse diameter x 8 mm in height. This moderately encroches upon the right sided foramen and partially on the left. The AP diameter of canal at this level measures greater than 9 mm.
Impression: Contained focal disc extrusion at the l5 - s1 level and mild narrowing of the spinal canal and effacement of foramen. Right greater than left.
Thanks in advance for the help and comments.
