    “There is some effacement of the cord” so you accepted that in the MRI last show some contact between the ligament flavum or else make a contact with the grey matter (this is you don’t call pressere on the cord and also does not call stenosis .
    1.but what you have to say a bout that the images of past MRI doesn’t show any contact of the ligament flavum with the csf and the cord .
    and in the past doesn’t was any issue with walking fast ,falling after severe weakness to some time and falling .
    2.what is the mechanism cause the ligament flavum to buckling ?

    You can have positional effacement as the cord changes position in the canal with head motion but this does not mean compression and pathology. Maybe when you hit your head, this caused injury to the ligamentum but this did not cause your weakness and gait issues in my opinion.

    but when you look to the MRI on the past also in neutral position supine the didn’t show any buckling of this ligamentum
    ” Maybe when you hit your head, this caused injury to the ligamentum” if you mean to the buckling of what see this was not see in MRI of 2016 (even 6 years after the injury ) so how can say this injury cause the ligament flavum to buckling
    .when you take a injury of what happened to me ,and from your experience what this injury (head hit on a wall ) can do to cervical spine ?
    thanks

    Meni, I can’t easily connect the lig flavum buckling to the head impact except to say it’s possible. I cannot connect your symptoms to your neck.

    “I can’t easily connect the lig flavum buckling to the head impact except to say it’s possible” if this not see in early MRI years after the trauma (so its very hard to say this happened in time of the injury .
    buckling ligament also connection to degeneration of the disc (also loss disc high ) you can confirm this information that mechanically (question :loss high of the disc affect on the ligament flavun to buckling .?for example also if the ligament flavum buckling after cumulative time this is in general result off loss disc high and degeneration of the disc ?
    for your what you see in my IMAGES i have arthritis in the neck ?
    i have degeneration disc ?
    if we take out the problem what “compression on the cord” (symptoms of gait i have not yet or falling this is not happened (just 2 times before 8 months )
    but neck pain i have a lot of years after the injury what causes my chronic neck pain?
    ” I cannot connect your symptoms to your neck.” you mean to the symptoms of gait problem (normal gait in but weakness in lower and falling ?(

    I cannot tell you what your cause of neck pain is presently. You would need a full workup which cannot be performed by distance. Hopefully, someone in Israel can do it.
