"Xr lumbar spine there is some irregularity of the inferior end plate L5 increased sclerosis of the articular processes throughout the lumbar spine, ?"
Varies : Increased sclerosis on the articular processes throughout the spine is another way to say you have diffuse arthritic changes in you spine. The end plate irregularity is harder to say without seeing the film, it can also represent a change seen in arthritis, but can also represent a fracture or even be seen in an infection of the vertebrae. You should see your doctor to go through it with you. ...Read more

Since your findings are mild, they may be just your "normal" variation. That is, everybody is shaped a little differently, but it doesn't cause a problem for most. If you have pain, a change in your posture, or an injury, see a spinal specialist. ...Read more

Hard to say: The treatment options for someone with the MRI findings you are describing are based also on the degree of problem you have had with it and also with the understanding that many people can respond to nonoperative care.

Potentially : A spondylolisthesis refers to a condition in which one vertebrae shifts forward on another. There are multiple potential causes.
