    my first mr c is was in 16 (6 year after trauma )
    in my mr (i checked the high of the disc in level (and result is c2-3 not mater so because not could to replace but (2.3 mm in one point (all point i check is in the middle of image) to 4 mm to hight point of c2-3.”(but u see the disc is very change shape and dark (result of the mm change how disc is not healthy .c3-4 (3.5 in high ti collapse in the end (u can see in T 2 IMAGE (IN THIS POINT the ligament flavum is on the csf (not black line between them )(this is indicate of the healthy of the disc also (collapse)
    in c 4-5 the disc is very thin (2.41 mm to 2 mm just )
    FOR COMPARED I TELL ABOUT RANGE SIZE OF C5-6 AND C 6-7 LEVEL
    C5-6 3.81MM TO 4.15 MM HIGH . 6-7 DISC IS TOTAL THE HIGH SIZE 4.22 MM TO 4.31 MM
    WHAT DO U THINK A BOUT THIS DISC HIGH (ITS NORMAL SIZE ?
    AND I CAN TELL U A BOUT CHANGE OF SHAPE OF THE SPINE (IN MR C 2018 )
    ALSO THE SIZE OF CANAL SEE MORE NARROW TO COMPARE IN MR 2016 (THIS HOW DO EFFECT ON SPINE (LIKE WHAT I READING IN YOUR GREAT WEBSITE
    TOPIC (“NECK Mechanically, everything in the cervical spine revolves around the disc”
    how much the disc very important to protect the spinal cord in over age (from narrow )
    i have w a bout replace in to level (uper 3-4 4-5 )if do think its protect spine over age from narrow also if c2-3 its stay not healthy (i tend to think so )?

    Based upon your history, you mainly have neck pain (“90%”), You could have had onset from hitting the side of a pool with your head. Your surgeon reviewed your MRI found degenerative discs and did not feel you were a candidate for surgery, You have failed chiropractic and osteopathic care as well as PT.

    Neck pain can be generated by the discs and the facets. Find an interventional pain specialist who has experience in radio-frequency ablations and see if you are a candidate for diagnostic facet blocks. See
