What is Spondylosis?
Spondylosis is the degeneration of the spine caused by wear and tear on the
joints. Deterioration most frequently involves the cartilage and bones in either
the joints of the neck, referred to as cervical spondylosis, or the lumbar spine,
referred to as lumbar degenerative disease. Spondylosis can also affect the
middle section of the spine, called the thoracic spine.
It is more common for people over age 60 to have symptoms of spondylosis.
However, symptoms can appear from age 40. Degeneration can also be caused
by osteoarthritis of the spinal joints.
At present there are no cures for spondylosis but pain management and physical
therapy can improve your mobility, improve spinal functionality and comfort.
Spondylosis can lead to nerve damage that can be debilitating, causing loss of
sensation in your limbs or shoulders and a loss of balance.
What Are the Symptoms of Spondylosis?
Symptoms of spondylosis include spinal pain and stiffness in the back or neck
that worsens with time, headaches or pain in your shoulders and arms.
What Causes Spondylosis?
The most frequent cause of spondylosis is a natural degeneration of the
cartilage and bones of the spine as a result of excessive wear and tear, which is
nearly always a natural result of aging. Extreme athletics can exacerbate this
degeneration but in nearly all cases wear and tear over the years is the cause.
Over time, the discs become dehydrated and lose the ability to act as cushions
between spinal bones. The painful grating of bone against bone often causes
the bones to develop growths called bone spurs to replace the missing cartilage.
How is Spondylosis Treated Without Surgery?
