Re: posterior osteophyte formation what this means

This board mainly deals with cervical spine problems(neck). You might want to post your question on the Back Problems board. Lots of help there for the lumbar spine.

Re: posterior osteophyte formation what this means

Hi, this means you have bone spurs (osteophyte) growing at the spine level between L5-S1 which is below your waist right above your tailbone kind of in your lumbar spine. This is like arthritis and it says posterior- is the back side of the spine.

You have pain in your back and/or leg??
