Spondylosis

Advanced Treatment Options
for a Healthy, Pain-Free Life

Spondylosis

Spondylosis is caused by age-related degeneration of the bones and tissues. At HealthQuest, we provide treatment for the severe, chronic pain and stiffness associated with this condition. The nonsurgical methods we use provide pain relief, lower the risk of permanent damage, and help individuals with cervical spondylosis or lumbar spondylosis lead a normal life.

Symptoms

Arthritis neck pain can range from mild to severe and may develop gradually or occur suddenly and can become worse when the neck is held in the same position for a long time. Other symptoms could include:

  • Headache
  • Numbness and weakness in the arms, hands, and fingers
  • Weakness in the hands or legs
  • Trouble walking or balance problems
  • Muscle spasms in the neck and shoulders

Spondylosis of the lumbar region causes pain in the lower back and pain radiating down one or both legs.

At our pain management center, our orthopedic specialists collaborate with physical therapists, orthopedic specialists, pain doctors and primary care physicians to diagnose and treat spondylosis. Diagnosis would involve physical examination, lab work, tests for movement, and X-ray or MRI to determine the affected nerves, bones, and muscles.

Effective Treatment with Nonsurgical Modalities

We provide individualized treatment using nonsurgical methods to reduce the pain, discomfort, and stiffness due to spondylosis. These include:

  • Physical therapy exercises to stretch and strengthen the neck and shoulder muscles and reduce pain
  • Medication: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to relieve neck pain and swelling as well as medications to treat muscle spasms
  • Spinal injections to relieve pain such as epidural injections and facet joint injections
  • Chiropractic manipulation to reduce back pain due to spondylosis
  • Spinal decompression to release the pressure on damaged spinal discs, joints and nerves
  • Pain management and faster healing with the Game Ready cold therapy system

Our treatment program also includes guidance for patients on lifestyle changes that can improve neck and back pain. Our specialists may recommend surgery if the non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments do not relieve the pain and other symptoms.
