What causes Spondylosis?

Spondylosis is most often caused by the natural aging process. Although spondylosis a broad term used for back pain caused by wear and tear, specialists most commonly use it to describe osteoarthritis. Spondylosis is caused when discs, muscles, or cartilage deteriorate naturally over time. This can result in pain, stiffness, weakness and other symptoms. While natural degeneration is the most likely cause for Spondylosis, people who are overweight, genetically predisposed or have had a history of spine injuries, may be at a higher risk.

How is Spondylosis diagnosed?

Your doctor will schedule a physical exam and history report as the first step to determining if you suffer from Spondylosis. X-rays, MRIs and CT scans are generally scheduled as a follow up to pinpoint specific causes of your pain from Spondylosis.
