You have inter vertebral disc protrusion between T4-T5, T6-7 and T7-8. This is causing pressure on spinal cord and spinal nerves due to stenosis or narrowing for passage through which they pass.
Usually for spinal stenosis and neural foramen narrowing caused by disc prolapse, conservative treatments like hot and cold compress, stretching exercises, back low impact exercises, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, specially designed corsets, spinal manipulation and traction and epidural injections are tried. If everything fails then laminectomy and other spine surgeries may be contemplated. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
