All the features in your MRI report are degenerative (related to aging and lifestyle). Facetal arthropathy itself can be a cause of pain. Although the degenerative changes are extensive, the spinal cord
appears normal. The retrolisthesis
present is also probably old and not a cause of worry. All these features although present do not constitute a reason to intervene surgically and thus can be managed with medication and physiotherapy
. The only worry could be the indentation of C5 exiting nerve root
. If you do have any symptoms of radiculopathy
on the right side (like shooting pain along the right upper arm or weakness of shoulder movement, especially while raising the arm) then, an orthopedic opinion maybe needed to look into surgical options. If not, you probably do not have to worry and your doctor can take care of the pain.
Hope this helps,
