Central protrusion at C6/C7

I read my report for my pre thoracic mri for my scs trial and they added this little tidbit of info - - - - >"There is a central protrusion at the C6-C7 level. This displaces the
cord." I know its a bulging/herniated discs but what do they mean by "displaces the cord?" I cant find anything online and wont talk to doc until Monday. I didn't have any accidents to cause this but I wonder if too much headbanging could've caused it(big hard rock and heavy metal fan). No more headbanging at concerts for me, I'll stick to air guitar lol


  • I feel like my neck is stiff and have a munor headache. Are these common symptoms for herniated discs in the neck?
  • Those are the symptoms I had with bad discs. But, I had myelopathy (and still do) when it compressed my spinal cord.
    How did the visit at the doc go yesterday?
