Welcome to healthcare Magic forum..
is a degenerative condition which affects the lower spine. In a patient with lumbar spondylosis, the spine is compromised by a narrowing of the space between the vertebrae, causing a variety of health problems ranging from back pain
to neurological issues. Patient presents with numbness, tingling, and pain which seem to radiate out from the area. These symptoms are the result of pressure on the nerves as they exit the spinal cord
. If the spondylosis is allowed to progress, it can lead to a narrowing of the spinal canal
, resulting in impingement of the spinal cord, which can cause poor bladder control, unsteady gait
, and other severe neurological problems.This condition is usually diagnosed by clinical features and X ray of the spine.
Treatment: In mild cases the main modality of treatment is pain killers and exercises..
In sever cases a surgery is usually required to correct the defect..
Hope this helps!!
