I am a fifty year old male who originally injured my back 25 years ago (load bearing on sholudes of 150 lbs with roational injury) and finally found a doc who ordered MRIs. Results as follows
Mild degenerative disc disease c5-6, C6-7 at C6-7 diffuse disc bulge produces moderate canal stenosis. This is accentuated by some ligmentum flavum hypertophy.
Multiple schmorl's nodes and some mild wedge deformity of the upper thoracic vertebral bodies. Mild posterior disc herniations at T5-6, T6-7, T7-8, Theses mildly deform the thoracic cord in theses levels but there is no significant canal stenosis.
It doesn't mean anything if you have no symptoms of pain or discomfort. What is your "Chief Complaint" in your own words. You have damaged discs but apparently no evidence of significant nerve impingement.
