Spinal Arthritis

I have DDD, degerative disc disease, and just had injections in my back to determine how much each lumbar disc was still there to be able to do surgery. The doctor told me that the L5S1 was almost completely surrounded with arthritis. Now I have dealt with my back for about 6 years, and no one had ever mentioned this to me before, so I have not done much research on arthritis. Just wondered what kind of treatment there could be for such a thing. Because of having two different things going on I am sure one treatment for ddd, would complicate the other so need as much information about this as I can get. I am usually on the back boards here, but thought I would try this one to see if anyone has any knowledge to share.
