Please help me interpret my cervical MRI, from a work related injury

I was injured on my job over a year ago, this is the recent mri report I have. Could someone please help me decipher this? WC personnel told me their opinion was this isnt from my injury but from normal wear and tear. Never had these symptoms till the injury. Im in my mid 40's. My neck is in constant pain along with stiffness, pain in my left shoulder.

Spinal Cord midbrain normal. C-3-4 central & left side disc protrusion impressing anterior left side spnail cord encroaching left neuroforminal canel. Right lateral disc bulge encroached into right neuroforminal canel and impressied on right nerveroot. C4-5 diffuse slighty left side disc bulge. C6-7 diffuse disc bulge.

Impression-
