    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??
