Hello, I am 30 years old female with what the doctors say: spondylosis, cervical, with radiculopathy. By the doctor my MRI shows: bad kyphotic deformity with apex at c5/6 and c6/7, also have multiple spondylolithese at c4/5 and c5/6. Disc herniations c3-7 with early facet arthopathy. What are the common treatment available? Surgery or not? And if yes, what kind?

Hello and Welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

First try drugs as Aceclofenac two times and muscle relaxant as Thiocolchicoside two times. Plus any neurotonic containing Methylcobalamin and Pregabalin once a day. As these are prescription drugs, please contact your local doctor he will prescribe these. Maintain proper posture of sleeping and sitting and standing. Sleep on hard bed. If no relief in 2 or 3 weeks, then you may opt for ortho surgey.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
