Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query.Your X ray impression gives an impression of spondylosis. But an MRI will be needed to find out the exact cause as the findings in X ray is limited.Intervertebral disc herniation is a possibility which causes nerve impingement and pain symptoms due to that. Physiotherapy, exercises NSAID drugs neurotropic drugs and muscle relaxants are the main elements of conservative therapy.If no improvement after that a surgical correction can be considered.Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.
