hi james , may i know yr age ? - here is my answer if ur below 40 yrs age. spondylosis is degenerative process, it is the ageing process in yr bony tissue. spondylosis can not occur due to action made by therapist. yr gas issue is co incidental. yr pain is gone after 2nd-4th day as yr paraspinal muscles comes in normal tone - so yr pain is due to paraspinal muscle spasm , not due spondylosis. usually spondylosis spine gives radicular pain to yr upper limb
