MRI Interpretation

I have just recently recived and MRI and would like a laymans answer to what this is.
1. Degenerating L5-S1 Disk
2. Prominent Central Disk Protrusion L5-S1
3. Mild bilateral foraminal stenosis L5-S1
4. Mild circumfrential disc bulging L4-L5
5. Desiccation of L5-S1 disk
6. No herniated nucleus pulposus identified

I have been doing physical therapy for the last month with no change in the amount of pain. I have gained a little more flexability but no real change in the amount of pain. What kind of options should I consider/request for treatment?

This padded knee sleeve offers relief from night-time pain due to pressure sensitive areas over the medial knee. A donut pad over the medial condyle provides greater pressure dispersion.
