    Neck pain...mri results...

    Hello all!
    I'm a newbe to the message boards and very excited to hear that I am not alone. Well...not excited...you know what I mean. Anyhow, I was wondering if someone would be able to shed some light on my MRI results and what I can expect when I see the spine doctor in the next week. I will just post some highlights...

    c3-c4 A very minimal disc osteophyte comlex is noted at this level which slightly effaces the ventral aspect of the thecal sac but does not result in significant central canal or neural foraminal stenosis at this level.

    c4-c5 There is a right paracentral disc osteophyte complex noted at this level and a small midline extruded disc fragment is noted which extends in a cranial direction within the epidural space along the posterior aspect of the c4 vertebral segment for approx. 4-5 mm. This slightly effaces the ventral aspect of the thecal sac and abuts the ventral surface of the cervical spine cord causing mild central canal narrowing. Mild flattening of he cervical spinal cord is noted without associated cord edema or myomalacia. There is no significant neural foraminal stenosis appreciated at this level.

    c5-c6 There is a bilobed disc osteophyte complex present at this level which slightly effaces the ventral aspect of the thecal sac and abuts and mildly flattens the cervical spinal cord at this level. Mild central canal stenosis is appreciated with a measured AP canal diameter of 8mm. There is no cord edema or myomalacia present. Mild to moderate right-sided neural foraminal stenosis is noted at this level., The left neural foreman appears widley patent.

    I am having pain in the neck and shoulders and numbness in fingers on the right side. I cannot sit at my desk for any long period of time before my neck and shoulders begin to burn. Is this something that therapy can fix?

    I would love to hear what you all think.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this

    I guess I should mention that I didn't have an injury. The pain has been there for years..it's the numbness that is new.
