:confused:Can someone please help me to understand my MRI results? I`m 35, normally very active. I had a minor fall over 2 months ago and have recieved epidural steroid injections and trigger spot injections. Nothing has helped. One doctor suggest physical therapy, the other told me it would only make things worse.

Findings: There is straightening of lordortic curvature of the cervical spine. There is no prevertebral soft tissue swelling. Brainstem and cerebellum are in tact. Vertebral body heights are well maintained. There is no intrathecal or intraaxial abnormality.

C2-C3- Mild endplate DJD. Mild facet disease. No prominent focal HNP or disc bulge. No significant canal or foraminal stenosis.

C3-C4- Mild endplate DJD, Mild facet disease. No prominent focal HNP or disc bulge. No significant canal or foraminal stenosis.

C4-C5-Mild endplate DJD. Mild facet disease. No prominent focal HNP or disc bulge. No significant canal or formaminal stenosis.

C5-C6-Prominent left paracentral HNP with moderate impression on the left ventral cord. The HNP is associated with intervertebral disc space narrowing and advanced uncovertebral endplate degenerative changes extending into left foramen. No evidence of cord edema. Moderate left lateral recess stenosis. Superimposed mild facet DJD.

C6-C7- Small central HNP with minimal impression on ventrical thecal sac. Mild facet arthropathy. Mild endplate spondylosis. No significant canal or foraminal stenosis.

C7-T1- Mild endplate DJD. Mild facet disease. No prominent focal HNP or disc bulge. No significant canal or foraminal stenosis.

Impression:

1. Prominent left paracentral HNP of C5-C6 with moderate left lateral recess stenosis and mild impression on the left ventral cord. With associated advanced chronic uncovertebral endplate degenerative changes, further reducing the caliber of the left foramen. No evidence of cord edema
2. Small central HNP of C6-C7 with no significant canal or formaminal stenosis.
