Hello and Thanks for writing in at HCM
The nature of treatment lots depend on the symptoms, clinical examination along with MRI report. But according to MRI the treatment you can prefer are:
1. Drug therapy: Analgesic with nerve tonic drugs.
2. LS belt
3. Physiotherapy
4. Avoid jerky movements of spine
5. Use hard bed to sleep and no pillow
If your symptoms are worse and not relieved by the medication and precautions than you might go for surgery. Consult your doctor for better options.
Best Wishes
