In brief: It depends

Lumbosacral spondylosis without myelopathy is a general diagnosis that covers a lot of different kinds and severity of complaints ranging from mild low back pain to severe back and leg pain with neurologic abnormalities like weakness, numbness and tingling.
Severe symptoms may sometimes be treated with narcotics or sometimes even with surgery, depending on the history, physical exam, and tests.
