It refers to degenerative changes in the spine.it is incomplete development and formation of the connecting part of the vertebra. Spondylosis is used to describe degeneration in the neck (cervical), lower back (lumbar), and middle back (thoracic). It is also used to describe the manner of spinal degeneration. Spondylolysis is the most common cause of isthmic spondylolisthesis, in which one vertebral body is slipped forward over another. Isthmic spondylolisthesis is the most common cause of back pain in adolescents; however, most adolescents with spondylolisthesis do not actually experience any symptoms or pain. The diagnosis of spondylosis is made using radiology tests such as plain film X-rays, MRI, or CT scans. X-rays can show bone spurs on vertebral bodies in the spine, thickening of facet joints, and narrowing of the intervertebral disc spaces. The main complication of spondylosis is low back, mid back, or neck pain. Usually the back and neck pain caused by spondylosis is not serious, but some people develop chronic pain due to their condition.
