worried mom of a young beautiful girl needs your help

hi my 18 year old daughter was in a car accident and now has some issues.  I am trying to understand her MRI that her Chiropatic sent her for.  She had an MRI on her cervical spine and it reveals a central subligamentous disc herniation at c5-6 moderately impressing on the anterior thecal sac at this level. Disc bulging is present at c3-4 mildly impessing on the anterior thecal sac at this level. Slight disc desiccation is also noted. Congenital narrowing of the c7 disc space is noted. The remaining cervical discs are intact. no significant cord compression is present. no gross widening of the visualized cervical cord is noted.  He is now sending her to a neurological.  Can you explain this a little for me so I understand what is going on and what to expect at the neurolist. If their are any questions I should ask the doctor and is this from the accident

Evidently, the accident caused pressure on two discs in her neck. Discs provide padding and shock-absorption to the cervical bones. They're applying a medium amount (not minor, but also not major) of pressure resulting from the accident. Congenital narrowing implies she was born with a neural canal that's a bit smaller than it should -- this is unrelated to the accident. Everything else seems fairly normal.

Can I ask what symptoms is she having that is requiring a neurological consult?
