Thanks for contacting HCM,

Friend, It would have easy to explain the management, if you have told me the problems your facing now. By seeing the MRI results one cannot decide the management. Its the clinical presentation by which we can decide the treatment preferences. Is your cervical spine flattened?
Have you started with the exercises? Specially cervical stabilization exercises? Do you have any relief from US and ICT? If you are not getting relief then change the management. Please also consult a Neurologist if the pain s not resolving.
Thanks. Please revert back in case of any help.
