Can somebody help me understand these MRI results please?

REPORT: Vertebral body alignment and height minimal retrolisthesis of C5 on C6.
Disc space decreased signal and height most severe at C5-C6 C6-C7 levels.
Marrow normal. Posterior fossa normal. Cord normal. Congenital stenosis
extending from the C3 through the C6 level.

Axial images.

C2-C3: Minimal facet arthropathy uncinate hypertrophy mild left neural foraminal
narrowing.

C3-C4: Congenital stenosis disc bulge effacement thecal sac facet arthropathy
uncinate hypertrophy mild/moderate bilateral neural foraminal narrowing.

C4-C5: Congenital stenosis disc bulge effacing anterior posterior thecal sac
facet arthropathy mild uncinate hypertrophy mild bilateral neural foraminal
narrowing.

C5-C6: Posterior osteophyte disc complex with effacement thecal sac superimposed
congenital stenosis and central disc protrusion minimally flattens cord. Facet
arthropathy uncinate hypertrophy moderate right mild to moderate left neural
foraminal narrowing.

C6-C7: Congenital stenosis central disc protrusion effacing thecal sac minimally
flattens cord facet arthropathy uncinate hypertrophy mild/moderate bilateral
neural foraminal narrowing.
