Spondylosis refers to changes in the spine that include the formation of bone spurs and the degenerations of the intervertebral discs. It is one of the most common spinal conditions – also known as Osteoarthritis.
Spondylosis generally occurs as a part of the natural aging process as bones and ligaments in the spine deteriorate, leading to the formation of bone spurs. Also, the intervertebral discs can become degenerative and weakened, which can lead to disc herniations and what is commonly referred to as a “collapsed disc.”
As the condition progresses it can begin to increase pressure or irritate the nerve roots exiting the spine. This can often cause pain that radiates through the extremities.

Spondylosis typically causes chronic pain in your back or neck. Other symptoms you may experience include:
- Pain that radiates into the extremities (radiculopathy)
- Numbness or tingling in the extremities
Spondylosis means you’re experiencing spine pain and degeneration at the same time – it may be caused by other spinal conditions. If you have chronic back or neck pain, it’s important to schedule an appointment with a back and neck specialist to discover treatment options and to get a reliable diagnosis.
