My MRI results read Vertebral body heights and intervertebral disc spaces are well maintained. The spinal cord has a normal signal characteristic. Disc osteophyte complexes are present at t6-t7, t7-t8, t8-t9,t9-t10 and T10-t11resulting in mild posterior displacement of the thecal sac, What does this mean in simpler words?

Hi..amsalcedo.., the osteophytes are extra growths of the bits of l bones,
this will compress the spinal cord, hence you will have pain..
they will measure 1 to 2 mm or few mm..

Take care..
