r spinal canal stenosis bilateral facet joint arthropathy with mid exit foraminal osteophytes possibly irritating the exiting nerve roots

C4/5 MOD disc dessication and loss of height diffuse posterior dis osteophyte indenting the anterior surface of the spinal cord for bilateral exit foraminal osteophytes likely impinging on exiting the nerve roots mod facet joint arthropathy

c5/6 mod disc dessication and loss of height diffuse posterior disc osteophyte is indenting and displacing the spinal cord posteriorly with effacement of CSF

Here is one sticky thread- Medical Dictionary & MRI/CT Terminology

They are where much saved & easier to find important posts are.

A web search of the words you don't know might get you the best info.
Like- disc desiccation (drying out)

Startpage Search results


Many MDs use the MRI results along with your symptoms & pain levels to form the best plan of treatment..

Hi, what I can add is that the disc degeneration issue does get to many as they age. For me I know I've lost about 3 inches from my frame due to disc degeneration. I would NEVER do surgery, and have learned to live with it and a MD I listen to talks about gentle bodywork like mild chiro work can help. The MD I hear is a doctor who does Prolotheraphy work but I don't think it's a big treatment in the UK.

As for the young people, and the genetic issue, I don't know, could be. But I stay away from surgeries but it's a choice many choose., Surgery as I see it is the Very Last Resort.
