Re: Need mri translated

Broad based disc ostephyte complex is a row of bone spurs. The ligament flavum hypertrophy is the ligament thickening due to years of poor posture. This comes from us working at desk instead of outside where we would normally stand upright a good bit.

The neuroforaminal narrowing is where the main nerve exits to the right and passes through the foramen which has also began to form bone spurs. I don't think he will be the least bit concerned with your overall neck. He may do a ESI and physical therapy, but don't get aggravated about the physical therapy because it is one of the conditions where it actually works good if you follow it.

He migt want to clean out foramen, but it depends on either if it's causing pain or if it is causing weakness in your arm.
