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.
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:
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:
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.
