Mild reversal or the cervical lordosis indicates that your cervical spine has an alteration in the normal curvature of the vertebrae.  This could be related to possible muscle spasms or other changes in the alignment of the cervical vertebrae.
The 1-mm retrolisthesis of C3-C4 indicates that the C3 vertebra  has slipped backward in position over the C4 vertebra.  
Treatment would depend on the nature and extent of your current symptoms and whether there is also evidence of nerve compression.
Post again with an update and any additional questions/concerns you may have.
Best wishes ----
