Spondylosis is degenerative osteoarthritis of the joints between the center of the spinal vertebrae. It can be caused by repetitive strain injury (RSI) caused due to lifestyle without ergonomic care, or age related degeneration. It may cause pressure on the nerves roots and can cause sensory and or motor issues, such as pain, or weakness in the limbs. Spondylosis can occur in any part of the spine, but is most typically found in the lumbar and cervical spine.
Provide mechanical support during painful activities and limit the motion of the affected vertebrae and relieve nerve impingements by providing some distraction of the spine for pain relief.
