Different Types of Lumbar Conditions:
Spondylosis: also known as spinal osteoarthritis, can be considered another part of getting older. It means degeneration of the spine from wear and tear, but not everyone will have symptoms as a result of spondylosis. The Spine Universe Spondylosis Center thoroughly explains this disorder, from symptoms and causes to the most common treatments.
Degenerative disc disease (DDD) affects people usually 30 and over because it is caused by the effects of aging on the spine. The intervertebral discs can become stiff and rigid, causing pain and other symptoms. However, there are many treatments, including physical therapy, medications, exercise, and surgery.
Spondylolisthesis is when one vertebra slips forward slip over the one beneath. Here in the Spine Universe Spondylolisthesis Center, you’ll learn about the spondylolisthesis grades, the difference between degenerative and isthmic spondylolisthesis, and why some people don’t have back pain with this condition.
Spinal stenosis: is a condition that the canal that houses the spine cord becomes narrow pressuring the cord which can cause moderate and severe neck and lower back pain. The most common cause of spinal stenosis is aging. Obviously we can not prevent this, but spinal stenosis “prevention” is about practicing certain habits to extend the health of your back. If you already have spinal stenosis, getting regular exercise and using proper body mechanics may help reduce the chances of your spinal stenosis from getting worse. Contact your chiropractor who will be well versed in tailoring these exercises to your needs.
