I am very, very hesitant to provide advice on issues involving nerve compression of the cervical area, especially without seeing the MRI
. First off you need a 3T MRI
(not a 1T). X-rays are useless. Then, assuming you have no fractures that could cause transection of the cord, the drill is oral prednisone for two weeks (NOT longer), gentle axial traction, for five to ten minutes at a time, separated by two hour intervals. That will take up your day. Think a month of this treatment.
