What is spondylosis?
Spondylosis is a degenerative processs of the discs of the vertebral column that causes stiffness in neck or stiffness in back (low back). The site of spondylosis is commmonly the cervical area or the lumbar area and very occasionally the thoracic spinal area. Because of degeneration sometimes it is associated with osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Simultaneous occurrence of lumbar spondylosis and cervical spondylosis may take place. Due to stiffness, pain and its radiation to limbs is a common factor. Sometmes spondylosis sounds same as some other conditions of the back bone and causes confusion. All these words should be differentiated.
Spondylitis means the inflammation of veretebral column. It may occur in inflammatory arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis or in ankylosing spondylitis. It is different from spondylosis as it is a case of inflammation, while spondylosis is process of degeneration.
