About Spondylosis

Spondylosis is a condition in which there is abnormal wear on the spine’s vertebrae and the discs between them.

Cervical spondylosis occurs in the neck and is a common cause of chronic neck pain. Thoracic spondylosis and lumbar spondylosis occur in the middle and lower back, respectively.


If we suspect spondylosis, we’ll conduct a physical examination. Spine imaging studies used to diagnose spondylosis can include:


Treatment for spondylosis depends on the severity and location of the problem and can include:

  • Anti-inflammation drugs
  • Biofeedback
  • Cortisone injections
  • Physical therapy
  • Surgery
