    can you explain these radiologists findings

    C4-C5 No significant canal nor foraminal narrowing. Mild left unconvetebral joint spurring evident.
    C5-C6: Disc height loss desiccation. Broad based dorsal disc osteophyte complex, facet arthropathy. Mild to moderate canal stenosis. Flattening of the cord with partial effacement of the CSF. No significant foraminal stenosis. T1/T2 hypointense material courses down along the C^ vertebral body, favor ossification of the posterior longitundinal ligament.
    C6-C7 Disc height loss and desiccation. Broad-based dorsal disc osteophyte complex with superimposed right central to foraminal component. Moderate eccentric canal stenosis with flattening and deformation of the cord, partial effacement of the ventral subarachnoid space. Facet and uncovertebral joint spurring are evident. There is severe right foraminal stenosis, moderate left foraminal stenosis. No intramedullary lesion appreciated.
    C7-T1 No significant canal nor foraminal narrowing. Preserved disc height and signal intensity.
    IMPRESSION:
    Multilevel cervical degenerative changes worst at C6-7 where there is broad based dorsal disc osteophyte complex with superimposed right central to foraminal component. There is facet and unconvertebral joint spurring. Severe right and moderate left foraminal narrowing are evident. Moderate eccentric canal stenosis with flattening and deformation of the cord but no intramedullary lesion. Lesser degree of canal stenosis at C5-6. Probable ossiification of posterior longitudinal ligament between C5-6 and C6-C7 discs.
    2 Congenital fusion of C2,C3 vertebra.
