What Is Spondylosis?
Spondylosis (spinal osteoarthritis) is a degenerative disorder that may cause loss of normal spinal structure and function. Although aging is the primary cause, the location and rate of degeneration is individual. The degenerative process of spondylosis may impact the cervical, thoracic, and/or lumbar regions of the spine affecting the intervertebral discs and facet joints.

 

Spondylosis, a condition of the spine marked by stiffness of a vertebral joint.

The condition may follow injury to the spine, or it may be the result of infection or rheumatoid disease.

Spinal cord compression, an abnormal and often serious condition caused by pressure on the spinal cord. The symptoms range from temporary numbness of an extremity to permanent quadriplegia (paralysis of all four limbs), depending on the cause, severity, and location of the pressure. Causes include spinal fracture, vertebral dislocation, tumor, bleeding, and edema linked with a crushing or bruising injury with contusion.
