OP: When I see minor and mild that would make me happier than reading moderate to severe etc....and do try to get more answers from your doctor. I'm sure my long time back issues were minor and mild if I had MRI's yrs ago, but today with advancing age, it all advanced.... Work to keep in that mild/minor area and does your doctor recommend PT or chiro work ?

terms for me PLEASE!

Cervical conclusions:
1. C5-6 mild to moderate right foramen stenosis due to facet and unicinate hypertrophy.
2. C6-7 minor spondylotic disc displacement. Mild to moderate right foramen stenosis due to facet and unicinate hypertrophy.
3. C7-T1 mild right foramen stenosis due to facet and unicinate hypertrophy.

LUMBAR:

1. Minor spondylosis. L3-4 mild diffuse spondylotic disc displacement and facet hypertrophy with nominal abutment of exiting right L3 nerve root.

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TRANSLATE WHAT THIS MEANS?!?!
The other areas can cause symptoms as well, that's when your list of pain/symptoms is needed... so MD, PT or DC can consider if related to the spinal levels indicated..

There are charts like this that may help you for spine/location/areas affected..
