Welcome to e health forum.

The history here is incomplete and hence it is difficult to give you accurate medical advice.

It is possible that you have recently undergone a medical imaging study, like a MRI, and you have been told that your disc space in the C5 & C6 vertebrae have reduced.

As per your question, further reduction in disc space can occur only due to progression of any disease process that you may have.

Treatment of the underlying condition, can help to reduce the symptoms like Neck pain that you may be having. Treatment might also help to reduce the rate of progression of the condition.

It would be recommended that you consult with doctors treating you who can go through the complete medical report and provide you a proper medical opinion.

I hope this helps.

Hi! Thanks for your query!

Your question is not very clear! Do you have a reduced disc space between C5-C6? This could be due to degenerative changes, slipped disc, injury, etc.

Treatment is usually conservative with rest, medication, traction, physiotherapy etc. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Since neck area is involved, it is best to consider a spine specialist. Take care!

Hello,

Reduction in the spaces between C5 and C6 causes Neck pain and will effect you in your daily activity and sleep time. It is recommended not to reduce the space. However, if you stil wish to reduce the space, please do consult your doctor who has good experience and can help you through the process.

Regards,
