Thanks for writing to us.
You have cervical spine degeneration with spinal stenosis. Do you get pain in arms? any imbalance while walking? feeling of tightness in legs?
Initially we always treat with medicine and physical therapy however if pain is significant and having above symptoms then need to consider surgical intervention. Thanks.
