Not sure of your ?: If you're asking about the imaging results you posted, you have a bone spur that is growing off of two of your vertebrae.

Not exactly: sure of the question, but you are describing a disc protrusion(herniations) which is pressing on the sac that encloses the spinal cord and cauda equine, and is also pressing on the L5 nerve roots. There is no mention of how severe this is. Talk to your doctor about whether this might be causing your symptoms. Not all disc protrusions produce symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Also say the disk is pushing the L-2 root & pushing it back against the boney canal it is surrounded by. Now this is important if you have leg pain that matches theMRI reading. Some are asymptomatic so see a fellowship trained spine surgeon my preference=isortho ...Read more
