In brief: Some Choices
I don't agree that moderate arthritis must have this outcome.
You can positively affect the course of your arthritis in many ways such as activity (regular, gentle exercises, for ex.) which keeps your neck moving, osteopathic manipulation-gentle treatment to keep the vertebral joints mobilized, & prolotherapy, if your do agrees, to strengthen the ligaments which can slow or stop arthritic change.
