This is one of my diagnoses & I'm confused since it's in the lumbar region.

The little info I've found on this condition says it's damage to the spinal cord. But, then I read that the spinal cord ends before it gets to the lumbar region.

Anyone have info on this?


  • This is similar to my diagnosis...the spondylosis basically means that there is a fracture in the vertebrae itself - they may also call this a pars defect. The fracture can be on just one side or can be on both (bilateral). As far as the myelopathy, from my understanding its can be trauma or inflammation of the spinal cord. The lumbar area has a lot of nerve roots, these might be compressed. For more specific information, you might want to contact our doctor. Hope this helps!
