    You may require surgery, however this is not always the case - it is essential to seek the advice of a neurosurgeon who will advise you after examining your MRI's

    Post surgery or if you don't need surgery gentle cranial osteopathy can help as cam pilates or other exercises that can specifically improve your spinal mobility without inceasing intra thecal pressure i.e. the pressue inside your spinal cord.

    Medication will most commonly be pain killers

    Addressing symptoms individually will depend on the symptom, for example speech therapy maybe useful if you have damaged vocal cords.

    Here's a link to some more info
