I also have a small herniation at c6-7. I have a neuro appt in 2 weeks. The ortho set me up for PT but told me injections were a waste and I would likely need surgery. The cord compression is scary.

... Thanks. I did get a lot more information on my last visit. My c5-6 is herniated and flattening the cord on the right side. My c6-7 is bulging pretty good too.

I guess ill know more after the neuro visit. The pressing on... (5 replies)

... There are 2 issues that can lead to paralysis in the spine....the spinal nerves and the spinal cord. The spinal nerves peel off the cord at each vertebra(except C1) and go out to the body, and where they leave the cord, they can be compressed by herniated disks, or arthritic bone spurs or any combination of those 2. The compression is rated as minimal, mild, moderate and... (2 replies)

... Don't get too worried... I'll bet surgeons tell 1,000 people they might get paralyzed in a fall for every one who actually does get paralyzed. Maybe 10,000.
