What is the effect of straightening of spine on osteophytic lipping ?
sir, I am 36 years old and height is 5 feet 7 inch having early osteophytic lipping at multiple levels and mild reduction in height of C5 vertebra with straightening of spine, sir please tell me about the effect of this.
welcome to healthcaremagic
osteophytic growth at multiple levels needs complete evaluation..if not treated properly u might get disc prolapse or spondylosis..consult a good orthopaedician who would guide u better..
