Spondylosis is a type of arthritis, to be more accurate, it is a specific osteoarthritis of the human spine.

When it affects the neck, it's called "cervical spondylosis", when it affects the lower back, it's called "lumbar spondylosis". It's usually believed to be a by-product associated with aging and wear and tear, but it does happen to younger patients as well, which can be contributed by injuries or history of joint damage.

Certain occupations are definitely more predisposed to develop this condition.

Spondylosis Physiotherapy Singapore Symptoms

Usually patients with clinical signs of spondylosis on xray do not experience the symptoms associated with this condition. In fact, up to 40% of patients with lumbar spondylosis do not experience any clinical symptoms.

Of course, in some patients, they can experience back pain and/or neck pain because of the nerves that are compressed, which are caused by disc bulges or bone spurs because of the narrowing of the holes which the nerves in the spine exit (this is called foraminal stenosis).

Symptoms experienced also depends on which level/location of your spine is affect, and common symptoms include:

  • intermittent pain (pain that comes and goes)
  • morning back or neck stiffness
  • tenderness of the area
  • tingling, numbness or weakness
  • bowel or bladder issue

Conservative management and treatment including spine physiotherapy is successful 75% of the time, meaning that good physiotherapy can save 3 out of 4 patients from invasive surgery.

Many patients find that their pains and other symptoms are effectively managed and treated by physiotherapists without the need for surgery. Of course, the remaining 25% are the very severe/advanced cases that necessitates surgical intervention.

During the flare up acute phase, patients may be placed on anti-inflammatories, painkillers and muscle relaxants to help decrease pain experience, and it may help during physiotherapy as well.
