    Spine RMI

    Need someone to decipher what this means! C5-C6: Posterior central disc osteophyte complex formation results in mild anterior effacement of the thecal sac. End plate spurring and facet arthropathy results in mild narrowing of the right exit foramen.

    Re: Spine RMI

    You have bone spurs growing off the interfaces of the C5 and C6 vertebrae with the C5-6 disk. They are growing backward into the spinal canal (thecal sac) and effacing (pushing away) spinal fluid inside the sac from in front of the spinal cord.

    Bone overgrowth off the vertebrae and off the facets (on the side of the spine) are growing into the right C5-6 foramen, which is the opening in the spinal cage where the C6 nerve leaves the spinal cord and heads down into your triceps and thumb.

    "mild" means that the radiologist thinks these conditions are not yet problematic

    Re: Spine RMI

    Thank you! Are there any conditions with the cervical spine that can make someone feel like they have balance problems?

    Balance is in the inner ear and brain, as far as I know. Spinal problems can cause disturbances of gait, though. Your feet may not do what your brain is telling them to do...
