This video relating to the cervical spine–Understanding the MRI of Cervical Stenosis with Spinal Cord Injury–is designed for the primary care physician or specialist such as a Chiropractor or Physical Therapist to use to learn how to read and understand the MRI of the cervical spine with a spinal cord compression. The central canal can narrow in many patients and compression of the spinal cord can result. This can lead to a condition of myelopathy (please see section on myelopathy) or can result in a spinal cord injury if the patient has an impact in the front of the head forcing the neck backwards.
