Hi welcome to HCM
Thanks for posting your query
Both report shows degenerative changes or ageing
There are four independent joints in the each knee. Each of these joints can undergo degenerative changes that progress to osteoarthritis
Spondylosis refers to degenerative changes in the spine
Spondylosis means stiffening or fixation of the bony blocks of the spine (vertebrae) as the result of a disease process.
Take care
