I have had lower back pain for awhile. I recently had an x-ray and this is what it showed:
There is narrowing of the L4-L5 and L5-S1 disc spaces as well as hypertrophic changes of the L5-S1 facet joints. There is a shallow rotatory levoscoliosis of the thoracolumbar spine centered at L2.
My question is...WHY does this cause back pain??
