I was x-ray with degenerative disc disease at C5-6 with narrowing of neural foramen at this level on right side. I have pain, numbness and tinger feeling of my rt arms from sholder, arm, elbow, and finger.
Is there any physical therapy I can do to strength something in my neck to open up the spacing at C5-6 so that the narrowing of neural foramen is widen.
thank for any suggestions and guidance.
YP- I cant help you with a exercise but for pain relief try lifting your right arm above your head and rotate tour rist out(to the right) Does this relieve the pain? That position I believe will open up somthing and relieve pressure off of your nerve. It did for me. If so get an MRI.

Good Luck.
