Pain due to prolonged sitting and sleeping. Cervical spine MRI showing T1 and T2 weighted sagittal and axial images. No disc herniation. Any suggestions?

Hi Doctor, I just got my MRI done for my neck and spine as I am continuously feeling pain after prolonged sitting and waking up from the bed. I am 31 years old. Here is the report : Cervical Spine MRI T1 & T2 weighted sagittal and axial images were obtained. Normal Dimensions spinal canal with normal spinal cord including cervico-medullary junction The vertebral bodies height with their bone marrow signal intensity are preserved. No significant disc herniation, nerve root compression or exit foramina obliteration. Thankyou doctor.

Thank you for posting your query, and providing the MRI spine report.

I would like to tell you that your MRI report is absolutely normal.

So, the cause of your pain is mostly mechanical. You would benefit from neck and back extension exercises. In addition, please ensure a good posture while sitting.
A few sessions of physiotherapy would help in reducing the pain further.

Best wishes,
