Re: Not sure what it means?
Welcome to the board.
I can't figure out what there would be about a hot stone massage that would cause you any back pain or spasms. Do you know what happened?
The results of the MRI indicate that there is very little wrong with the thoracic area. There is a bulging in the disc located between the last thoracic and first lumbar vertebrae. I can't tell the size of the bulge but it must be small as it doesn't seem to be causing any nerve compression or stenosis. The spurring just means that there are signs of bony nodules growing along the surface where it would normally be smooth. This may be a sign of normal wear and tear, of a bit of arthritis or a bit of instability.
This finding doesn't seem sufficiently significant to justify the restrictions you have been given.
