is this bad







3. AT C4-5 , there is mild generalized disc bulge and posterior  


vertebral body osteophytes with mild spinal canal narrowing and mild  


right neural foraminal narrowing.  





4. AT C5-6 , there is generalized disc bulge and posterior vertebral  


body osteophytes and mild posterior subluxation. There is moderate to  


severe spinal canal narrowing and severe bilateral neural foraminal  


narrowing.  





5. AT C6-7, there is mild generalized disc bulge and small posterior  


vertebral body osteophytes with mild spinal canal narrowing and  


moderate bilateral neural foraminal narrowing.  





6. AT C7-T1, there is no evidence of disc herniation or significant  


disc bulge. No spinal canal narrowing or neural foraminal narrowing  


is seen.  





IMPRESSION:  





Multilevel disc disease as discussed above with moderate to severe  


spinal canal narrowing and severe bilateral neural foraminal  


narrowing at C5-C6.

Um, your neck is messed up pretty bad. You're probably going to end up needing surgery soon.

Since your nerves are pinched coming out of your neck (Referencing foraminal narrowing), there's a good chance that some of these are motor nerves. So, in short, there is a potential for loss of range of motion and sensation as a result if there's no other explanation for it.
seen doc today staring with a shot first
That should help with pain associated with the condition; however, I'm not sure how effective it will be with range of motion in your shoulder.
I am having trouble can't do a left turn signal with left arm trouble sleeping  getting dressed ect.they said it wasn't  in shoulder it was in spine.i do have a tear in tendon in shoulder too.they just keep passing me back and fourth.6 most now
this was shoulder  also did 3 wks rehap no results from that. I don't know what to do pain neck to left elbow. a lotin top of arm


MRI left shoulder without gadolinium.  





COMPARISON: Left shoulder x-ray 10/16/2018.  





CLINICAL INDICATION: Chronic pain.  





QUALITY OF STUDY: Good  





CONTRAST: None.  





TECHNIQUE:  


Axial and sagittal PD and T2 images were performed as well as coronal  


T1 and T2 images.  





Findings:  





There is no definite evidence of full-thickness rotator cuff tear or  


tendon traction. There is no abnormal fluid in the subacromial  


subdeltoid bursa. No glenohumeral joint effusion. No muscular atrophy.  





There is tendinosis and peritendinitis of the supraspinatus tendon as  


well as a partial-thickness intrasubstance tear of the supraspinatus  


tendon at its humeral head insertion.  





The subscapularis tendon is intact. Long head of the biceps tendon is  


present within the bicipital groove. No definite evidence of acute  


labral tear.  





There is no focal bone bruising.  





There is mild degenerative arthritic change at the acromioclavicular  


joint.  





IMPRESSION:  





1. No definite evidence of full-thickness rotator cuff tear.  





2. Mild supraspinatus tendinosis and peritendinitis with a  


partial-thickness intrasubstance tear at its humeral head insertion.  





3. Mild AC joint arthritis.

Right, again, as the nerve pinch is affecting nerves, that includes both sensory and motor nerves. If motor nerves are pinched from the foraminal canal from your cervical spine and leading into your arm, then them solely dealing with just the pain associated with a pinch will not help regain range of motion.

What they are doing is bandaging the symptoms instead of treating the root cause. Seek out a chiropractor and see what they think, if it can be treated through manipulation of the neck since that is a non-invasive treatment option that has minimal-to-no recovery time; otherwise, as I've previously stated, you'll be looking at surgery to remedy the root cause.
Can I have light headedness with this problem
