Thank you for posting your query.

Your MRI findings do not reveal any significant abnormalities and there is no need to worry.
Please see a physiotherapist, and learn the exercises for neck and lower back. Doing them on regular basis would keep your back in good shape.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
