My problem is severe neck pain and my arms legs are weak. The X-rays and MRI results were as follows. Spondylotic changes are present at C5/6 and C7 levels with disc space narrowing and osteophyte formation, loss of cervical lordosis indicating muscle spasm and exit foraminal encroachment by osteophyte at C5/6.
My legs are weak I cannot stand more than 10 minutes, headache, neckpain and lower back pain troubles me daily. I consulted a Chiro once and it was worse(severe neck pain) after that. What would you suggest rather than operation.

If chiropractic care is not proving successful - then possible surgery is indicated.
