    Re: m.r.i of the T1 and T2 show bilateral neuroforaminal narrowing

    Hello - I am a patient just like you. I have some thoracic problems as well. You have disc drying, shrinking at this level in your spine which is just about the level below that hump on the back of your neck. Very common aging process and also sometimes from previous injuries/accidents from long ago. It doesn't say but you must have some bone spurs (osteophytes) in there too. If you have the complete text from your MRI on the T1-T2 level you can type in in here and we will look at it for you. The neuro foramins are like little canals where the nerve roots leave your spinal cord and go to your extremities. The good news is your have narrowing but nothing is pressing on the nerve roots or spinal cord (neurocompression).

    They usually only recommend surgery in thoracic spine for really bad cases because it is tricky and complex. What pain are you experiecing?

    Common things to do for your condition is to use conservative therapies, like Physical therapy, massage, rest, ice/heat, certain pain medications depending on degree of pain, and also epidural spinal injections. For this type problem I personally would not allow adjustments by a chiropracter.
