  • Translate this radiologists report for me?

    I had some xrays done on my lower back due to back pain. I dont understand a word of it, and i feel like my doctor did not explain to me in detail what any of this means, i feel like she didnt want to freak me out. Someone please tell me in normal people language what this means. This is the radiologist report:

    "there is a shallow scoliosis, convex left. On the lateral view there is a grade 1 anterolisthesis of L5 on S1 and minimal retrolisthesis at L3-4 and L4-5. Spondylytic defects are evident posteriorly at the L5 level. There is minimal narrowing at all levels from L3 to sacrum. Vetebral body heighs are well maintained."
