MRI results 1.5mm hydromyelia, is it bad?

She's my sister, so this isn't first hand. She has pain between her shoulderblades and sometimes a shooting pain down her arm. She also has mild to medium scoliosis. Is 1.5 mm small for a hydromyelia and can it be helped at all, the web seems to say it's a bleak outcome for this kind of problem. Her pain has been slowly getting worse over the last couple years, now it's moderate chronic pain.

Here's the MRI report word for word.




Sagittal weighted images demonstrate normal bone alignment. Marrow signal is unremarkable. There is no evidence of fracture, sublaxation, or Chiari I malformation. A tiny hydromyelia is identified measuring 1.5 mm, beginning at the C6/& disc space and extending caudally to the mid C7 vertebral body level



Impression:

1. Tiny hydromyelia beginning at C6/7 disc space and extending caudally to the mid C7 vertebral body level.
