Hello Mrs. Agatun,
It is better if you bring these results to the doctor who asks for their examination. The results of investigations must be combined with a physical examination and history (question and answer) to produce an appropriate diagnostic decision.
If you only refer to the results of the examination, you may have a muscle strain and cervical spondylosis, a condition that causes damage to the cervical spine and its bearings. This condition then causes pressure on the spinal cord and causes pain in the neck, shoulders and head. This disorder is caused by aging, but other factors can also affect it, such as heredity, work that requires extreme neck movements or previous neck injuries.
Treatment of cervical spondylosis depends on its severity. Usually given pain medication, or cold or warm compresses. In more severe symptoms, a neck collar or neck support may be required. Physiotherapy may also be recommended by your neurologist. Patients are usually advised to:
Avoid neck down position and neck twist
Avoid sudden neck movements
Avoiding sitting or standing for too long
Get regular exercise
Use a comfortable chair to sit and improve your sitting posture
In addition to pain relief, you may also be given muscle relaxants or antidepressants. If symptoms are severe and severely interfere with activities, surgery may be considered but the risk is high.
At this time you should consult your neurologist. You can discuss the treatment that is most appropriate for you.
