Hi I am 29/M years old and suffering from neck pain from past 3years and recently visited the doctor and advised for MRI scan report. Please find my detailed MRI report and explain me what is the exact problem in general terms and what are the precautions and exercises for improvement.
What is the exact problem and is there any parmanent cure for this
1. T1 weighted and T2 weighted axials / sagittals.
2. T2 weighted sagittal screening of the whole spine.
Mild diffuse posterior disc bulge with a small right paracentral disc-osteophyte complex is seen at C5-6 level indenting the thecal sac. Mild right laterl recess narrowing is seen at this level without significant nerver root indentation.
small anterior osteophytes are seen from C3-4 to C5-6 levels.
The remaining intervertebral discs appear normal. They do not show any significant bulge/ prostrusion.
The vertebral bodies and their posterior neural arches are normal in configurations and marrow signal intensities. The CV junction and Atlanto-axial joints appears normal.
AP diameters of the Cental spinal canal in cms are as follows:
VERTEBRAL LEVELS AP DIAMETERS
The cervical spinal cord appears normal in size and signal intensities. No evidence of intramedullary / extradural / intradural space occupying lesion seen. The Paraspinal soft tissues are normal.
T2 Weighted sagittal screening of the whole spine.
Sacralization of L5 vertebra noted. Mild posterior disc bulge is seen at L4-5 level without significat neural compromise. No significant abnormality is seen in the thoracic spine.The dorsal spinal cord, conus medullaris and cauda equina nerve roots appear normal in size and singal intensity.
MILD DIFFUSE POSTERIOR DISC BULGE WITH A SMALL RIGHT PARACENTRAL DISC-OSTEOPHYTE COMPLEX AT C5-6 LEVEL INDENTING THE THECAL SAC. MILD RIGHT LATERAL RECESS NARROWING AT THIS LEVEL WITHOUT SIGNIFICANT NERVE ROOT INDENTATION.
