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

  Hi and welcome to the Spinal Cord C/D forum.

  I am not sure what u r looking for ...as a support forum we can share what we know about these conditions and answer questions, but to advise u on a MRI report, that is out of our area....

May I ask was ur mom in a MVA in the last few yrs?, or did she have a fall?

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?

  I really can not answer that one, sorry, all I can say is if u feel the treatment is not working or u feel it may not be appropriate, u can always get another opinion....

  I wish u all the best with this and please keep us updates on what is done and how ur mom is doing.
