Spondylosis is the most common form of spine bone degeneration that begins to affect people from their middle-age onwards. Symptoms show up when a bone spur pinches a nerve, or simply begins with pain and stiffness. These symptoms include:

  • Stiffness in the neck and back
  • Pain in the arms and shoulders Also in lower back and legs
  • Difficulty moving the neck and back
  • Headaches and dizziness

Sometimes, the condition develops into cervical myelopathy and shows up as:

  • Numbness and tingling in the limbs when the nerve is pinched
  • Loss of bladder and bowel movement (Cauda Equina syndrome)
  • Lack of co-ordination
  • Difficulty walking
  • Difficulty in balancing
  • Weakness in hands and foot muscles.


Spondylosis is caused primarily by:

  • Bone and muscle degeneration
  • Disc generation: This causes bone spurs that add friction to spinal movements
  • Poor posture and sitting incorrectly
  • Spinal injury or partial disc dislocation
  • Sedentary lifestyle
