Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to tell that the interpretation of x-rays can be complete, only if we have the clinical data. So, the impression below is only based on the x-rays.

The x ray of the cervical spine (neck region) shows degenerative changes, and osteophytes formation. The disc spaces are reduced suggestive of bulging of discs and compression of nerves (originating there) and traveling to the arm and forearms.

This may lead to neck or arm pain, tingling or numbness of arms, etc.

The treatment would depend on your symptoms, and in most cases, it would consist of physiotherapy and medications (such as pregabalin or gabapentin).

Please consult a neurologist for opinion and detailed treatment planning.

Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
