Cervicle Spine - Need help to understand the X-Ray Report

Report says:

Prominent anterior spurs seen at C 5/6. The vertebral heights, interebral disc spaces and alignment are maintained. Posterior bony arches and facet joints appear normal. Bone density is normal.

Impression:
Limited Spondylosis seen at C 5/6

Issue:
My husband is 43 - Works in a software house and spend around 8-10 hours working on his laptop.

He was having this pain *** numbness in left side of his neck and lower back. What is this?

We have googled on Spondylsis and it seems it is irreversible. Will be seeing doctor next week.

Will appriciate if any one explain what does this mean?

Re: Cervicle Spine - Need help to understand the X-Ray Report

Seems kind of odd that he'd have significant spurs (1) at only one level and (2) when everything else looks fine.

I think I'd better leave any explanation to the doc...
