What are bridging osteophytes, are they bone spurs cause Ive never heard of a bone spur that bridges? Apparently they are doing something to the back of my SI joint. Why is that important? I've never had an si joint fusion.
Also, my doc says my L5S! disc is bulging, but what is a high intensity zone? The Google machine said that is an annular tear, but I'm not sure?
I'm feeling okay, but it's just the variety of pain meds, pt, massage, tens, RFA and injections that I have to keep up with in order to keep the pain down to between a 2 most days and 4 on worst days.
