Update on MRI

Ok guys, you remember me the pinched nerve poster, just look back for review. My family Dr. ordered the MRI for cervical spine since my chiropractor only ordered the thorasic spine. Ok, so it says minimal disc bulging at C6-7 and mild facet spurring toward the left at 7-1. I understand that a chiropractor can help out with the disc bulge but what about the spurring? I don't understand what this means.
i doubt I will go back to my previous chiropractor as it frustrates me that my family DR. had to mention that the cervical spine could be causing my discomfort under my right shoulder blade. I would have thought the chiro. would have thought of that also. But anyway, what's done is done and now i can only get this straightened out. You guys have any thoughts? And again, thanks for your replies. I realize it is hard to help without seeing the actual patient.
