What is Hypertrophic Uncovertebral Hyperostosis in Relation to a Cervical MRI?

I had an MRI and was reading my report. I know that hypertrophy is arthritis, but I am not sure what "uncovertebral hyperostosis is? Does anyone here know? The report also said I have encroachment onto the corresponding left C4-5 and C5-6 neural foramina. Just looking for some insight. Thanks in advance.

I did a little research. I also have some trouble with myy lumbar spine and some nerve dysfunction there. I also had a bone spur I didn't mention found on my cervical spine. On top of this, I had a bone spur removed from my shoulder. I found a disease called "Forestier Disease." It seems to fit my issue. Is anyone familiar with this in rheumatology?
