Re: explaination on cervical problems
Looks like you have some bulges, but no ruptures (herniations). I would see a Ortho doc and maybe check into phys therapy or even injections to help calm the area down. Surgery should be a last resort. I just had my 3rd neck surgery and I can tell you it is a domino effect. Once you have one surgery, the likelyhood of having another increases. Try conservative treatment first. Especially if you don't have constant pain or weakness. Good luck to you.
