It is the degenerative arthritis of spine. Pathological changes like Osteophytic occur in the vertebral bodies. Osteophytic changes are mostly anterior or lateral in projection. It rarely impinges upon the spinal cord or nerve roots. Osteophytic changes are like a bony outgrowths or bony spur formation in the vertebra. It also affect in the intervertebral disc.
