Buckling of the Posterior Longitudinal Ligament

Question about my MRI:
My cervical spine MRI shows a buckling and focal disruption of the posterior longitudinal ligament with abutment and mass effect upon the right anterolateral margin of the spinal cord resulting in indentation of the right hemicord and possible mass effect upon the exiting nerve root. Not to mention the 2-3 mm disc bulge at C2-C3, C3-C4, C4-C5, C5-C6, C6-C7 AND C7-T1.
Does anyone know what course of action is usually recommended for the ligament?
