Ayurvedic Treatment for Spondylosis
Request An Appointment
"Spondylosis" refers to degenerative changes in the spine such as bone spurs and degenerating intervertebral discs. Spondylosis is more of a descriptive term than it is a clinical diagnosis. The term Spondylo means the vertebrae and Lysis means disintegration. And in today’s world it has come to embody a general term for age-related wear and tear of the spinal discs.
Degenerative Spondylosis can occur in the cervical spine (neck spondylosis), thoracic spine (upper and mid back), or lumbar spine (low back). Lumbosacral spondylosis is spondylosis that affects both the lumbar spine and the sacral spine (below the lumbar spine, in the midline between the buttocks). While Spondylosis causes majorly is deterioration of the vertebrae, Spondylosis symptoms range wide including pain, numbness and tingling. Multilevel spondylosis means that these changes affect multiple vertebrae in the spine.
Spondylosis Vs Spondylitis:These are two medical terms that sound similar but are different conditions. Spondylitis is inflammation of one or more vertebrae, such as in ankylosing spondylitis, an inflammatory form of arthritis of the spine. This is a very different process than spondylosis because spondylosis is degenerative while spondylitis is inflammatory.
Spinal stenosis, a condition associated with Spondylosis, is a narrowing of the spinal canal that limits the amount of space for the spinal cord and nerves. This puts pressure on the spinal cord and nerves due to limited space, causing pain, numbness, and tingling.
Sciatica, also associated with spondylosis, is pain shooting down the sciatic nerve as it runs from the low back down the buttock and the leg, either on one side or both sides. Sciatica often occurs when a herniated disc puts pressure on the sciatic nerve as it exits the spinal canal in the low back.
For many Spondylosis on X-ray do not show any symptoms - Lumbar Spondylosis is present in 27%-37% of people without symptoms. In some people, Spondylosis causes low back pain and neck pain due to nerve compression. Pinched nerves in the neck can cause pain in the neck or shoulders and headache. Nerve compression is caused by bulging discs and bone spurs on the facet joints, causing narrowing of the holes where the nerve roots exit the spinal canal (foraminal stenosis). Symptoms of Spondylosis include localized pain in the area of Spondylosis, usually in the back or neck. Spondylosis in the cervical spine (neck) can cause headache.
A large disc herniation in the lumbar spine can cause nerve compression and cause pain that originates in the low back and then radiates into the legs. This is called Radiculopathy. When the sciatic nerve, which runs from the low back down the leg to the foot, is affected, it is called sciatica. Radiculopathy and sciatica often cause numbness and tingling (sensation of pins and needles) in an extremity. Back pain due to a bulging disc is typically worse with prolonged standing, sitting, and forward bending and is often better with changing positions frequently and walking. Spondylosis with Myelopathy refers to Spondylosis that is injuring the spinal cord. Spondylosis without Myelopathy refers to Spondylosis without any injury to the spinal cord. Symptoms of Myelopathy include low back pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness.
