    There are degenerative disc changes with uncovertebral joint hypertrophy  
    associated. The discs are decreased in signal. There is facet joint  
    arthropathy. Degenerative change narrows the neural foramina.

    osteophyte complex encroaching upon the left neural foramina.  
    At C3-C4, there is a degenerative disc osteophyte complex, with narrowing  
    of the left neural foramina.  
    At C4-C5, the disc demonstrates a small annular tear but is not herniated.  
    At C5-C6, there is a degenerative disc osteophyte complex with narrowing  
    of the right neural foramina.  
    At C6-C7, there is a mild central disc protrusion. There is not  
    significant central spinal stenosis.  
    The cerebellar tonsils are normal in position. The spinal cord is normal
