After months of testing on my shoulder (SLAP tear repair in Jan 2008) my doc finally ordered an MRI of C-Spine and this is what it revealed. I would appreciate any insight you can provide, and typical treatments.
Posterior bulging in T2-3 disc.
At C5-6, there is loss of disc height with anterior and posterior bulging in the disc. There is also facet arthropathy. There is uncovertebral arthropathy, right greater than left.
At C4-5, there is marked uncovertebral arthropathy. There is loss of disc height. There is anterior and prosterior bulging in the disc and facet arthropathy with proximal neural foraminal stenosis, right greater than left.
At C3-4, there is anterior and posterior bulging in the disc. The C2-3 disc is well maintained and the cervical cord appears normal.
