Hi zafran,

As doctors, we treat the patient and his symptoms. Looks like you have a MRI report showing some features of degeneration (wear and tear), but the MRI scan requires no treatment! Please let me know what symptoms you have, how long you have it, what medicines you have taken and for how long and whether it has given you any relief. That will let me know if the MRI report correlates with your symptoms which will help in giving you appropriate advice.
