Hello and hope you are doing well.

Osteophytes are also commonly known as bone spurs, develop in deteriorating joints damaged by arthritis. Schmorl's nodes are defined as herniations of the intervertebral disc through the vertebral end-plate. Both of these lesions can cause compression on the nerve roots.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
