A very common spinal problem experienced by people worldwide, spondylosis is basically osteoarthritis of the spine. It’s a degenerative disorder which might lead to the loss of normal spinal structure & function in a person.

Spondylosis Symptoms

Spondylosis is known to affect specific areas of the spine, such as the neck (cervical), mid-back (thoracic), or lower back (lumbar) region. Depending on the spinal region it affects, the following are the common spondylosis symptoms:

Neck (Cervical) Region

  • Neck pain radiating into the shoulder or arm
  • Weakness in the arm, hand or wrist due to nerve root compression by a bone spur
  • Issues in swallowing food as a result of a bone spur on the cervical spine (in rare instances)

Mid-Back (Thoracic) Region

  • Pain in the mid-back area that is felt after bending a joint forward or hyperextendin

Spondylosis Causes

Spondylosis can be caused by a wide array of factors. However, out of them, the following are the three main spondylosis causes:

Degeneration Caused By Ageing Age-related wear & tear is the leading cause of spondylosis. As we age, water levels in the spinal discs drop, resulting in them shrinking, getting herniated/bulged and contributing to spondylosis.

Repetitive Usage & Overuse Engaging in physical activities that involve constant bending and leaning down can cause regular muscle strains, culminating in spondylosis over a period of time.

Direct Trauma Trauma due to a fall/accident can contribute to spondylosis by causing injuries to the spine and its neighbouring tissues. The inflammation during the initial period of the injury can cause wear & tear, joint enlargement, and other problems linked with spondylosis.

Spondylosis Diagnosis

In individuals showcasing spondylosis symptoms, an enquiry regarding the symptoms followed by a physical examination can help a doctor get a brief idea of the condition.

The healthcare professional can then prescribe imaging tests such as an X-ray to check for changes in spinal bones and/or an MRI or CT scan to examine detailed images of the spinal discs. The X-ray could also be conducted to inspect the skeleton while in motion, such as when bending the neck/spine forward or backwards.

These diagnostic scans can help identify issues like herniated/bulging discs and bone spurs, which may be causing nerve root compression by narrowing the spinal canal.
