can the patient understand them?

Yeah, I've had several joint X-rays come back with "severe" arthritis, and I don't really know what it means. For instance, both thumbs are that way, yet no one suggested replacing the joint until it gets worse. So, I guess, worse means worse function and pain. But do they describe it differently on an X-ray when it gets to that stage?

Sorry there is no easy solution. Are you going to do some PT? Hope you figure out ways to reduce the pain.

I have a PT appointment with someone who was highly recommended to me a week from tomorrow. (It was the soonest she could see me.) I decided to go with someone who had a track record of being helpful over seeing an unknown sooner.
