cervical disc dessication(desiccation)

I have got an MRI Cervical Spine done yesterday and the results are as follows.
Loss of normal lorodosis
Vertebral bodies are normal in height and signal intensity
Peripheral osteophytes noted, large posterior at C6-C7
C5-C6 disc dessication (desiccation) noted
C3-C4 and C5-C6 right farlateral disc bulge noted causing mild lateral recess narrowing
rest of the intervertebral discs are normal
The spinal chord shows normal signal intensity
Craniovertebral junction is normal
No intraspinal or extra spinal mass lesion
Pre and paraspinal soft tissues are normal
multiple small deep cervical and supraclavicular nodes seen
T2W screening of dorsolumbar spine is normal

Impression : MR image morhology is in favour of * C5-C6 disc dessication (desiccation)
*C3-C4 and C5-C6 right farlateral disc bulge causing mild lateral  recess narrowing.

Can you suggest remedy and precautions to be taken
