Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

There is no mention of age, gender, weight, symptoms, associated morbidity and so on.
It is not the investigation report, but the patient as a whole, who needs treatment.
Why was it done?

You will benefit from Spinal exercises, Physiotherapy and occasional Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs for pain relief.
Consult an Orthopaedician.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
