My mom has severe neck and back pain.
She did an MRI recently and this is the impression
MRI cervical spine
Mild Cervical Spine Scoliosis with concavity to right
Cervical lordosis obliteration - suggesting muscle spasm
c4 body focal hemangioma
c3/c4 to c6/c7 small anterior osteophytes
c3/c4 and c4/c5 discs mild diffuse bulges indenting ventral thecal sac centrally
c5/c6 and c6/c7 discs small left paracentral broad nucleus pulposus portrusions mildly indenting left exiting nerve roots
MRI Lumbo sacral spine
Mild lumbar spine scoliosis with concavity to left
Mild lumbar canal narrowing at l5/s1 levels
small anterior osteophytes at all levels
L4/L5 disc mild difuse bulge indenting ventral thecal sac centrally along with left lateral annular tear
L5/S1 disc mild diffuse bulge indenting bilateral S1 nerve roots centrally
Thanks for the reply. She did not have a MVA nor a fall. She has been having the back pain for few years and was on medication and started having neck pain also. She initially went in for physiotherapy, but no relief. When we took an MRI on doctors advise we were recommended a intervascular ozone injection. Is this the only solution or do we have any other option?
