Ct scan shows mild right side l5/s1 arthropathy with a bone spur. It pops while raising left leg. Why is this?

Not correct. Right l5s1 arthropathy doesn't cause popping, which emanates fr. Subluxing same sided scroiliac joint ( sij), which does "pop". Reason right sij pops is inherently loose ligaments, which allow counternutation of right sij when stable contralateral hemi-pelvis, w. Non-mobile sij, torques en block; from a moment of force imposed upon the left hemi-pelvis by an elevated ; extended left leg.

Ct scan shows mild facet arthropathy of right l5/s1 facet joint. Why does it hurt just as bad on the left side same area as right when it's "normal"?

Difficult to locate. The facet joints in the back are deep, under the muscles, and it is not possible to exactly localize the source of pain for patient. So it is quite possible to feel pain on both sides in lower back only way to localize the pain is to block the joint with anesthetic and see if the pain goes away after the block i hope that helps.

Absolutely. Mild facet joint arthropathy is very very common on ct and mri. This is not a death sentence and may not even be the cause of your low back pain. Since the pain is relatively new, if strong anti-inflammatories don't help, you can possibly get a lumbar facet joint steroid injection to get rid of the pain. Get a proper evaluation by a spine specialist to see what the actual cause is. Read more...
Yes You Can. You will get over this. It is not over, at least not yet ;). Start a physical therapy/exercise program, remember start slow and take your time to get back to health and strength. Look at all those athletes out there in the world, they take their sweet time before getting back on the field. It must all mean something... Facet injections/Treatments are also helpful if you are not improving. Read more...
