Lumbar Spondylosis

Lumbar Spondylosis


Lumbar Spondylosis is a degenerative condition that occurs with aging and affects the vertebrae and discs. It is a type of arthritis in the back that causes inflammation in the small joints on the side of the vertebrae (called facet joints). When the joints become inflamed or bone spurs (osteophytes) develop, narrowing can occur where the nerve roots exit and pinch the nerves. Symptoms can include back pain that may radiate into the buttock, hip, or leg, weakness or numbness. Treatment options include traction, physical therapy, traction, massage, epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, medial branch blocks, radiofrequency denervation, and surgery.
