Hey Ozzie!

The report described multiple level degenerative changes in the lower part of the spine and mild-moderate disc prolapsed. There is also narrowing of the spaces that carry the spinal nerves at levels L3/L4, L4/L5 and /L5/ S1, without actual compression of the neural structures.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
