Injured back 6 months ago. Ct scan showed bone spur on right l5/ s1 facet joint. Does that mean i already have arthritis in it at 22?

In brief: Back pain

Degenertive changes in the spine are seen at many levels and do not mean you have arthritis.
This is most likely a change at the disk space and is not uncommon in the twenties.
