Spondylosis Spinal Arthritis
Spondylosis (Spinal Arthritis)
Spondylosis, the medical term for spinal arthritis, refers to spinal degeneration. Spondylosis treatments, such as physical therapy, are available at Coastal Spine.
Spondylosis symptoms result from several different causes, such as:
- Aging. As we grow older, the discs that act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae of the spine deteriorate. As a result, the space between the bones of the neck and back narrow, which can put pressure on nerve roots. Spondylosis symptoms are most often found in patients over 60 years old.
- Genetics. You can be more susceptible if arthritis runs in your family.
Spondylosis can lead to Spondylolisthesis.
