I am a 31 yr old male, 6 foot, 195 Pounds , healthy overall.
Recently while at work we were attempting to lift a heavy pipe and it fell on me injuring my back. I had a CT SCAN done and this is what was found.
The Sagittally reformatted images show normal height and alignment of of the vertebrae. Mild degenerative disease is seen at c5-6 with Posterior disc osteopathic complex indenting the the thecal sac and mildly narrowing the adjacent bilateral intervertabral foramina.
Can someone help me decipher this CT SCAN finding. I live in a Northern Community and cant see the specialist for a few weeks. Thanks for your time.
Also what type of medication is generally prescribed for this?
Is it possible the "indent" occurred when the pipe was too heavy and fell on me?
