Lumbar Spondylosis

Lumbar spondylosis is a type of lower back arthritis that most typically affects adults over 60. Physiotherapy can help alleviate the symptoms of lumbar spondylosis.

Causes for Lumbar Spondylosis:

The lumbar spine consists of five vertebrae separated by discs that act as shock absorbers and make the spine more flexible. As humans age, the joints in the lumbar spine wear and tear, resulting in additional bone growths called osteophytes surrounding the vertebrae and discs to try to repair the damage.

osteophytes can stiffen the spine and sometimes impinge on the surrounding nerves, causing additional complications.

Symptoms of Lumbar Spondylosis:

  • • Stiffness
  • • Low back pain

Neurological Symptoms:

  • • Tingling/Pins and Needles
  • • Abnormal Reflexes
  • • Gait Problems
  • • Co-ordinations Problems
