thanks for your query
Lumbar spondylosis 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,
Low back pain (LBP) affects approximately 60–85% of adults during some point in their lives
Given my limited ability to isolate causative sources of chronic lower back pain. general measures are--
Exercise therapy (ET) include aerobic exercise, muscle strengthening, and stretching exercises
Lumbar back supports may provide benefit to patients suffering chronic LBP secondary to degenerative processes
Painkillers,muscle relaxant,antidepressant,etc are medications used for treatment
Take care
