cervical spine mri - what are options to fix problem?

Age: 55, female

Problems: Difficulty turning neck-clicks, neck/jaw cracks, numb/tingling arms/hands/fingers, floppy arms, whole back misaligns causing difficulting walking (fixed with an alignment), headaches, neck pain, eye pain, vertigo/nystagamus.

Began: 2006.  Have been going to a chiropractor since 2002 as a way of helping MS-RR symptoms.  Problems started in 2006 diagnosed with cervical spondylosis and cervical radiculopathy.   Was working around problem with massages and alignments three times a week, rest and stretching.

Results 8/2011 MRI:
Straightening of normal cervical lordosis.

C2-C3: Disc desiccation herniation. Mild asymmetric left-sided facet arthrosis
C3-C4: Disc desiccation herniation. Mild asymmetric right-sided facet arthrosis.

C4-C5: Moderate disc degeneration of disc space narrowing and ventral osteophyte formation. Posterior annular bulging indents the ventral thecal sac w/o significant central stenosis.  Mild bilateral facet arthrosis.

C5-C6: Moderate disc degeneration of disc space narrowing and ventral osteophyte formation. Posterior annular bulging effaces the ventrl thecal sac and contacts the ventral cord surface producing mild central stenosis.  Spurring results in moderate left and mild right foraminal encroachment.

C6-C7: Moderate disc degeneration of disc space narrowing and ventral osteophyte formation.  Posterior annular bulging indents the ventral theecal sac w/o significant central stenosis.
