Suggest Treatment For Prominent Posterior Disk Bulge And Osteophyte At C6-7

Hi, I am a fit/healthy 48yr old female, 5ft 10 and 10st 4. Have been suffering with neck/shoulder pain for over a year which causes pain with tingling and pins and needles in my right hand, especially middle finger. An MRI cervical spine result revealed: prominent posterior disks bulge/osteophyte at C6-7. It indents the dural sac and causes minimal flattening of the cord. It also extends into and narrows the right foramen although questionable if it causes nerve root compromise. I work at a computer all day, will this make it worse and how long should it take to get better?
