C4/5 and C5/6 moderate to severe narrowing of canal due to ligament thickening and endplate spur with mild cord flattening.  AP diameter is 6 to 7 mm.  No CSF anterior or posterior to the cord, large uncinate spurring causing moderate to severe foramina narrowing.

C6/7 moderate narrowing of canal due to endplate spur and ligament hypertrophy.  AP diameter is 9 mm.  No flattening of cord, trace of CSF anterior and posterior to the cord.  Foramina are moderately narrowed due to large uncinate spurring.

What does this mean and where to go from here.  PT makes symptoms worse.
