Hi there. Your MRI showed a prolapsed intervertebral disc in the cervical region, which could be causing compressive neuropathy symptoms from the involved nerves exiting at the level of the prolapsed disc. Pinched nerve implies injuries from compression, constriction and stretching. Resulting symptoms include numbness, pins and needles, and pain radiating outwards from the injured area. Lesion in the neck would require further investigation by a neurosurgeon. Your neurosurgeon would investigate these conditions in detail and apply discretion as to what modality of therapy would be required, physical therapy, acupressure, NSAIDs, epidural injection of steroids or surgical decompression. Hope this helps. Take care.
