Hi,

It suggests, degenerative chnages in the cervical spinal. Spine is formed by multiple small bones called as vertebrae. In between two vertebrae, a soft disk provide the cushioning. Spine has a central canal through which spinal cord pass. In presnce of degenerative changes (age related, port trauma), the disk loses its normal allignment to the vertebrae and impinge on the spinal cord or the nerves arrising from it. This result in nerve pains and muscle weekness.
