Injured lower back 9 months ago. Ct scan showed a bone spur on my right l5s1 facet joint. Now 2 or 3 vertebra are sore to touch in my mid back. Why?

Back pain. Persistent pain and worsening back pain should prompt another MRI of the mid (thoracic) and low (lumbar) back pain. Also, a bone spur is usually a chronic condition unrelated to an acute injury.

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.

Get a proper evaluation by a spine specialist to see what the actual cause is. Read more...
