Need help with MRI results

I was in an MVA 07/09 and have not been the same since. I am suffering from major neck pain that has shooting pain running down my right arm to fingers and I can't lift my right arm above my shoulder. Comp has been giving me a hard time and went for another MRI and got the results but have no clue what it all means...

Findings: The C2-3 through C4-5 levels are unremarkable.

At the C5-6 level, there is a posterior annular tear and small central posterior disc herniation/protrusion which mildly effaces the thecal sac. Uncovertebral osteophyte midly narrows the left neural foramen. The right neural foramen is patent.

At the C6-7 level, small right paracentral posterior disc herniation/protrusion midly effaces the thecal sac. The neural foramina are patent.

The C7-T1 level is unremarkable.

No subluxation. No signal adnormalities in the cervical spianl cord, which is normal in caliber. The craniovertebral junction is unremarkable.

IMPRESSION:
1. Athe C5-^ level, there is a posterior annular tear and small central posterior disc herniation/proturusion which midly effaces the thecal sac.

2. Athe C6-7 level, small right paracentral posterior disc herniation/protrusion midly effaces the thecal sac.

3. No subluxation

Can anyone tell me what this all means in english please...
