Hello, I had hernia-related pain about one month ago. With abrupt leg and foot movements, I experience pain in the cervical segment of the spine, radiating into my arm. MRI test result: degenerative-dystrophic changes of the cervical segment, spondylosis, osteophytosis of C5-C6 segment, posterior hernia of C4-C5 segment with a tendency to sequestration. Could the hernia growth be stopped? What do I do?
If the MRI data shows a disk protrusion (small hernia) which does not cause dural sac compression and you have no clinical manifestations of the disease, you need to undergo physical therapy and therapeutic physical training aimed at strengthening the muscles of the cervical segment of the spine. In order to make the decision, you must make an appointment and show the MRI results to a neurologist or neurosurgeon, who will give you recommendations for further action.
