  1. Dear Dr. Young , I was in a car accident on March 18, last week my chiropractor sent me to get a MRI on my neck. Can you interpret what the this paragraph from my MRI says?"There is diffuse straightening of the cervical spine. There is minimal retrolisthesis on C5 on C6. The vertebral bodies are normal height. Chronic degenerative signal changes are present within the endplates of the cervical spine. There is edema within the endplates at the C5-C6 level consistent with active disc degeneration. Hyperintense T2-weighted signal abnormalities are present within the paramedian aspects of the cervical spinal cord from the C5 level to the C6-C7 level. There is a component of volume loss associated with the signal abnormality consistent with myelomalacia. The visible posterior fossa structures are unremarkable, with no cerebellar tonsillar ectopia. The paraspinal soft tissues are unremarkable." I have no idea what anything in the report means.
    Thank you John

    Wise, perhaps you have not seen this thread, perhaps you feel uncomfortable commenting. Either way, could you clarify?

    Hi Dr Young
    I'm a C 4/5 quad and have recently been
    speaking to a doctor about a baclofen pump. Is it true that the baclofen pump catheter does not damage the Pia Mata (skin around spinal-cord) because the catheter is quite small and flexible and just flows up within the intrathecal space? Can you elaborate on this further? Can they cause damage like Morphine pumps at catheter tip? at what spine level are baclofen pumps inserted and thread to? Baclofen pump's inhibit sexual function specifically erections, can someone reduce baclofen pump dosages at certain times to maintain erections when necessary? I have found drugs that reduce spasticity decrease tension in the muscles, which tends to inhibit blood flow and erections is this correct? Some spasticity actually helps erections?
