Generally disc changes are a result of spondylitis (arthritis) and if prolapses are as MRI shows are bulges you may not need immediate surgery but at same time doesn't necessarily rule out future surgery as any of the bulges may herniate to cause cord compression on indentation. You must consult a spine surgeon
to decide the course of management.Definittelywith present MRI findings immediate surgery is not indicated.
As of now you need to wear cervical collar
, avoid jerks, do isometric cervical muscle exercises
,take anti-inflammatory/analgesics,and chymotrypsin
(chymoral) tabs 4times a day empty stomach to reduce oedema in vertebral foramina if any.
