These changes are often called degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis.
When this condition is in the lower back, it's called lumbar spondylosis. But they are a common cause of spine problems that can range from mild to severe.
Spondylosis, spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis are three different ways that the human spine can degenerate over time.
Spondylo means spine and is the prefix for these three issues.
If you do have symptoms, they may include low back and buttocks pain; numbness, tingling, pain, muscle tightness or weakness in the leg (sciatica); increased sway back; or a limp.

As with all of these issues, they don’t always cause pain.
