“The only symptom that could be coming from your ligamentum is local neck pain”
(the pain i suffer in last 5 years (more severe in last 3 years it is from facet arthritis that developed by the disc degeneration(facet c upper neck c2-c4 mostly ) see
in 2016 MRI the facet are not have arthritis (maybe very little )
but MRI 16 show ddd in the upper neck (affected by tear on the rings in trauma )
so the disc degeneration cause the the arthritis in upper facet .
see the link https://youtu.be/Rj8nrHcGexU
the buckling of LF doesn’t happen because the trauma (its effected by mechanical stress comes from years with degeneration of disc, (and this caused by the trauma )(c5-7 disc their is not any problem also no pain.
buckling of LF doesn’t exist before 2021 (there is a little evidence of buckling on MRI 8.20 )
