Osteophytes form naturally on the back of the spine as a person ages and are a sign of degeneration in the spine. The typical symptom of disk degeneration with osteophytes formation, involves the impingement of the nerves as the osteophytes irritate nerves exiting the spinal canal. The patient would typically complain of pain radiating down an extremity whether it's the arm or the leg, the pain may be associated with numbness or weakness in that same area. Treatment options for degenerative disk disease with osteophytes formation, it typically starts with a conservative approach.
