Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
The very fact that you underwent a CT of cervical spine
suggests that you have some symptoms related to cervical spine.
All the findings are suggestive of DEGENERATED CERVICAL SPINE simply called as cervical spondylosis
which are age related changes.
The general guidelines for treatment of cervical spondylosis is as follows -
Rest: A soft cervical collar
is advisable. It should not be used for more than a week or two as it may worsen the condition with prolonged usage.
are needed in the acute phase. Muscle relaxants are essential for relieving muscle spasms which generally follows acute pain.
Cervical traction: may enlarge the disc space, permitting the prolapse to subside. Intermittent cervical traction for not more than 30 minutes at a time. Weight upto 8kg can be added.
Physiotherapy: Once the acute phase of pain has subsided, Isometric strengthening exercises of the paravertebral muscles are started. Moist heat can be useful
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
