    You have what is know as degenerative joint disease (DJD).  Due to age and biomechanics you have misaligned C4 because the joints are degenerating with disc bulge that is not yet pressing on anything.  C5-6 are connected to each other as you were born this way.  C6-7 degenerative changes to the joint with a little disc bulge. 

    If you have tried PT and have not gotten results, go to a chiropractor.  It will not be an overnight fix. You will need consistent care.  This will get worse the longer it is not treated as DJD is progressive.  Arthritis and disc degeneration are the source of the pain. Im quite surprised that the numerous docs didnt recommend things like nerve blocks, injection therapy like steroids or other pain management  approaches.

    Good luck

    One disc is slightly out of place, nothing further.  You don’t need a doctor to know how to read

    If numerous Doctors don't know then they need retraining. 

    One of your discs is slightly protruding. Nothing else is wrong.
