I had an MRI cervical spine and diagnosed with multilevel complex osteophytes, and cord contact at c5-6 level.

Told neurologist I been suffering with balance problems for a long time, along with neck pain, stiffness, shoulder pain and dropping things, and urinary urgency. Neurologist said go for PT, but, had all therapies with not much relief. Could you please help?
