Posterior disc osteophyte is a condition where more than one spinal vertebrae or disc is affected by bone spurs. This can happen during aging, from a degenerative disease, obesity, or from your body producing extra nodules of bone.

Can whiplash to the neck cause osteophyte complex and compression of the left C6 nerve?

Yes, I was T-boned (whiplash injury) and developed posterior osteophyte complex as a result. My CAT scan showed no injury after the accident at the hospital but a year later I had a MRI done because of severe neck pain and it showed osteophyte complex. The extreme force put on the disc during impact (whiplash) triggers your brain to "repair" the injured disk forming osteophytes.
