Hi there!

The repost describes degenerative changes along the cervical spine with intervertebral disc desiccation at C4, C5 & C6 and patent spaces that carry the spinal nerves; while the reversal of normal curvature is likely to be due to muscular spasm, secondary to associated inflammation. You may like to discuss the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating doctor.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
