Hi and welcome to HCM

The MRI report you have given above goes with Cervical Spondylosis.
There are features of Disc bulge with narrowing of neural foramina from C4-C7 levels.

These degenerative changes are not completely reversible but the further progression of these changes can be retarded with medical treatment and regular physiotherapy exercises.

Usually the treatment goes in following lines: rest, lifestyle modifications (namely- avoiding pillow while sleeping, following a healthy diet plan, maintaining suitable posture while working on computer/driving, avoiding any activity that strikes neck discomfort), medications (that your physician prescribes) and most important physiotherapy ( in form of neck exercises, cervical traction if required along with local ultrasonics).

Hope this will helps you. Take care.
