2 mm retrolisthesis of c5 on c6
A retrolisthesis is an acute, degenerative, or congenital condition in which a vertebra in the spine becomes displaced and moves backward. In most cases, retrolisthesis occurs when a soft disc that separates and cushions vertebrae either deteriorates or ruptures. Without the support of the disc, the upper vertebra slips out of place and puts pressure on the bone below it.
In most instances of vertebrae slippage it will involve a forward movement of an upper vertebra, which will slip toward your chest. The backward movement is less common but in people with degenerative disorders it still occurs in considerable frequency. It can be. Views, where care has been taken to expose for a true lateral view without any rotation, offer the best diagnostic quality.Retrolistheses are found most prominently in the cervical spine and lumbar region but can also be seen in the thoracic area.
I would like to understand what the findings actually mean as I recently applied for a new insurance policy and they will not cover for the life of the policy anything having to do with my cervical spine. Findings: C5- intervertebral disc is narrowed. There is approximately 2mm of retrolisthesis of C5 on C. There is mild posterior spurring of the endplates. There is associated slight bony narrowing of the right C5- neural foramen. Is this that bad.
I do not have and have never had severe neck pain. Sometimes a stiff neck - if I sleep with too many pillows or I strain it in exercise class. Is this going to keep getting worse as I get older. Well you are not alone. I have been diagnosed with L5-S1 degenative disc disease with severe arthritis and c5- degenerative disc disease as well. SYMPTOMS:Started 2.5 months ago with a sharp stabbing pain between the scapula and progressed over about weeks to neck pain with bilateral arm pain (triceps and forearms) that is worse in the right arm with mild weakening of the right arm.
Additional pain in mid back that radiates into the rib cage and bilateral pain in the legs that seems to be due to tension of the muscles (which feel flexed and tight when they hurt). Veritas-Health LLC has recently released patient forums to our Arthritis-Health web site.Please visit are several patient story videos on Spine-Health that talk about Arthri1. I have: 2mm retrolisthesis in C5-C. Posterior borders of the other cervical verbrae are normally aligned.
a 3mm right paracentral protrussion at C5-C indents the cervical cord, causing moderate central stenosis at c5-c. No abnormal sign in cervical cord. The protrusion, retrolisthesis, disk narrowing, and right uncinate joint spurring cause moderate stenosis of the right C5-C foramen. No other foraminal stenosis is seen in the cervical spine.
A 2mm central protrusion at C-C7 and 1mm central protrusion at C7-t1 indent the thecal sac without causing central stenosis. Hi there. If a surgery has been suggested as the appropriate management, this would be a major surgery and being close to the neural structures may involve some risk as well. Hope this information is helpful.
A person who experiences the condition may have a number of symptoms, Advice to patientsThe information presented here is aboutRetrolisthesis.It sets out thedetails you need to know about retrolisthesis if you have been diagnosedwith the condition. In my case, I had no other option - both disks were completely and severely herniated, and I faced the loss of full use of my left arm (even today, I still have nerve damage issues as a result).
The affected nerve path radiates down the neck, across the shoulder, down the left arm, and into the left fingers. At the time, all the fingers in my left hand were numb up to the first knuckle. For both of my other operations, I was looking at a wheelchair had I not opted for surgery. Any help is really appreciated.I am including MRI results from 2010 and 2012 as well as symptoms I have now.
There is straightening of the normal cervical lordosis. There is approximate 3mm of anterolisthesis of C4 on C5 and 3 mm of anterolisthesis of C7 on T1. Vertebral body heights are normal.

There is a small extruded and sequestered disc heriation with the sequestered fragment of 4 mm lying medial to the course of the right S1 root sleeve within the right lateral recess.
There is no compromise of the thecal sac. (0 replies). The cord is not significantly deformed but slightly f.
