Neck Pain

Can some one please explain me what does these Reports says from a X-ray.

The C7-T1 level is not well-visualized on the lateral view.
Vertebral body heights and disc spaces are maintained. No
significant subluxation. There is multilevel spondylitic change
greatest at C3-4. There is mild bony foraminal narrowing
bilaterally at C6-7 and C7-T1.

It doesn't say much. The x-ray is an obsolete method of diagnosing cervical damage. Essentially your cervical vertebrae seem to be pretty-much in the place where they are suppossed to and you have a slight narrowing of the opening through which the nerves pass through in the lower cervical vertebra. There are slight abnormalities that would probably (my judgement) warrant a further visualization with an MRI. Usually people don't get such x-rays unless they have pain or discomfort. If there is no pain, live with just the x-ray. If there is pain, seek to get an MRI.
