Hi there!

The MRI describes degenerative changes of the intravertebral discs at the cervical levels causing compromise of the spinal canal and the spaces that carry the spinal nerves without actual compression of the neural structures at C5/C6. Since the changes are still moderate an initial trial of conservative management with rest, anti-inflammatory medications and physiotherapy would be advised. I would suggest discussing the situation and the management plan in detail with your treating orthopedician.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
