Cervical MRI???
Mar 7, 2002
Can anyone explain this to me in terms I can understand. I have puking migraine headaches and was wondering if any of this would be causing them? I have no arm pain, just neck and upper back pain.

Subluxation of C5,C6 &C7.

MRI---Prominent posterior osteophytes at the C5-6 and C6-7 level which slightly narrow the anterior CSF space but do not appear to cause cord compression. The right neuroforamina at C5-6 is patent and there is mild narrowing of the left C5-6 neuroforamina secondary to uncovertebral joint and facet hypertrophy.
C6-7: There is a smaller diffuse posterior osteophyte. This does not narrow the anterior CSF space and does not cause cord compression or spinal stenosis. The neuroforamina are widely patent.
