Can you help interpret?

My Chiropractor tried to interpret, but did not seem very confident... Can you help please?

Results from my MRI today:

L5-S1: There is a large central and left paracentral disc extrusion which measures up to 7 mm AP and 1.6 cm transverse. The extrusion extends up to 1.3 cm superior to the level of the disc space. There is mass effect on the thecal sac. The lateral recess is effaced and there is mass effect/displacement of the left traversing S1 nerve root. There is no evidence of neural foraminal stenosis. The AP dimension of the thecal sac at this level measures 8.6 mm.

There is mild degenerative change at L5-S1. At this level there is a large central and left paracentral disc extrusion. The AP dimension of the thecal sac is narrowed to 8.6 mm. There is effacement of the lateral recess and displacement of the traversing left S1 nerve root.

Thanks so much!!
