In brief: Cause for back pain.

It means your main nerves coming from your spine that run through your vertebrae can be suffering of compression because overgrowth of the bony area is squeezing it/them.The pain is caused by the nerve itself that might be irritated by contact with the vertebra.
Nerves transmit sensation so pain is triggered this way. F/u with your doctor to create a plan of action for treatment.
