    Hi all,

    I have recently been given my MRI results. I want to know if you think I should proceed with conventional treatment or if I should treat it with TMS approach?

    1. Joint space narrowing at inferior aspect of right sacroiliac (SI) joint with diffuse
    synovitis and osteitis of subchondral sacral and iliac bone, representing active

    2. Joint space narrowing at inferior aspect of the left SI joint with osteitis,
    reapresening active sacroiliitis.

    3. Subchondral bone sclerosis at superior aspect of left sacrum, erosion and fat
    deposition of superior aspect opposed left sacral and iliac bone, representing
    inactive sacroiliitis.

    Many thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this and reply.

    Hi Scott,

    I'm not a medical Dr or able to confirm,, but would suggest you run your findings by a TMS Dr who would be able to review and confirm.

    Hi Mike,

    Many thanks for your reply.

    I have looked over Sarno's books today and can't see anything about these things. So, I will treat these with conventional methods and/or diet changes maybe.

    Thanks again,

    Hi Scott,

    I discuss MRI results in some detail in the introduction to Rapid Recovery from Back and Neck Pain. Unless you fell of a horse or were in a serious car accident that injured your back these changes are all normal.

    According to the American College of Physicisns Best Practices Advice MRIs should not be done since they show a lot of normal abnormalities, which are quite common among people with no back pain at all. Presence of these structural changes are just a coincidence not the cause.


    I will discuss these and how to recover rapidly in my workshop next month. See details below.

    So relax and avoid focusing on it.
