Recently, I was diagnosed with the following (Radiology Report): "There are degenerative changes of the end-plate. There is a limbus vertebrae at L5, a chronic finding. There is evidence of acute compression deformity or subluxation. A small limbus vertebrae is also seen at L4. End plate spurring is present. There are mild degenerative changes of the facets".
Would someone please explain what this means. Do I need surgery? Being an aggressive runner for many years, the lower back pain has had a major impact in my running.
Thank you for your kind response.
