Hi welcome to HCMForum. cervical spondylos usually dont leed to paralysis. if it happens will be extensive. you have taken MRI it might be mri of spine. mri of the head only reveal the thrombosis if any. spondylosis causing parylysis needs manipulative treatment by orthopedic surgeon
and physio therapist. If thrombosis is excluded treatment by mrthopedic surgeon is a must. if simultaneous thrombosis is present neurologists treatment alone will be suffecient. what ever the reason is, it is completely reversible. but one thing to remember is recovery depends 75%
py. hypertension and cholesterol are to be checkd and monitered. As it will take long time for recovery patience of the patient
