Hi.. ventral-opp. antirior to posterior.. Thecal sac is the outer covering of the spinal cord. This means there are bone spurs on the back of the spinal bones, putting pressure on or affecting the front part of the outer layer of the cervical spinal cord. Diffuse cervical bulge means a generalized disc bulge of one of spinal discs of the neck. This bulging material may contact or "pinch" the thecal sac or nerve roots. Some people may experience little to no discomfort, while others may have severe radicular pain, which travels to the shoulder blade, down the arm and into the hand or fingers. Some people may experience numbness and tingling of the arms and hands. Take ultrasound for 10 days.. PNF technic exercise for neck. Hope u get well soon. TC
