Cervical spondylosis and Lumbar Spondylosis which causes neck pain and lower back pain is one of the most common problems that one encounters in day to day life. It is a wear and tear of the vertebrae and discs .It is a condition of degeneration of the inter-vertebral disks, which advances with advancing age and in course of time, also involves the adjacent structures. It also leads to inflammatory changes which in turn brings about calcification (deposition of calcium) leading to extra bone formations called osteophytes
When the space between two adjacent vertebrae narrows, compression of a nerve root emerging from the spinal cord may result in radiculopathy (sensory and motor disturbances, such as severe pain in the neck, shoulder, arm, back and or leg, accompanied by muscle weakness).
The patient may experience a phenomenon of shocks (paresthesia) in hands and legs because of nerve compression and lack of blood flow. If vertebrae of the neck are involved it is labelled cervical spondylosis. Lower back spondylosis is labeled lumbar spondylosis.
