Thanks for writing to us.
Your findings of MRI are suggestive of cervical spondylosis. These are age related degenerative changes of the spine and the further progression can be retarded with the help of appropriate treatment. The changes that have taken place are difficult to reverse conservatively.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
