What is Spondylarthrosis?

Spondylarthrosis is a degenerative process that occurs in the joints of the spine. It’s also known as spondylosis, spondylitis, or spondylodiscitis.

It is a type of arthritis that affects the joints at the end of your spine. It’s caused by inflammation and degeneration in your spine, which can lead to pain and stiffness in your lower back, neck, or hips.

What are the types of Spondylarthrosis?

Spondyloarthritis is a form of arthritis that affects the spine. There are several types of spondyloarthritis, and each type has its own unique symptoms.

  • Ankylosing spondylitis is one type of spondyloarthritis that results in inflammation in the spine, which can cause pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility.
  • Axial spondyloarthritis refers to arthritis that affects the spine’s axis (the vertebrae at the center of the spine). It typically causes back pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility.
  • Enteropathic spondyloarthritis is another type of arthritis that affects the spine’s axis. It typically causes inflammation throughout your body and joint pain in your lower back and neck.
  • Peripheral spondyloarthritis refers to arthritis that affects your bones rather than your joints or spine. It’s common among people with HIV/AIDS.
  • Psoriatic arthritis is another type of arthritis that affects your joints but not your spine; it’s common among people with psoriasis (a skin condition).
  • Reactive arthritis is a relatively rare form of arthritis caused by an infection elsewhere in your body such as urethritis or conjunctivitis (inflammation).

What are the symptoms of Spondylarthrosis?

The symptoms of spondylarthrosis include:

  • Pain that worsens when you move your body in certain ways or with certain movements (like bending down or twisting)
  • Stiffness in your back and shoulders that makes it difficult to move
  • Tenderness or swelling around the joints of your spine
  • Pain in one or more of your lower limbs (legs)
  • If you notice any of these symptoms, see a doctor immediately.

What are the causes of Spondylarthrosis?

Spondylarthrosis is a type of arthritis that affects the spine. It can be caused by an injury to, or degeneration of, the vertebrae in your spinal column.

The most common causes of spondylarthrosis include:

  • Trauma to the back (such as from falling)
  • Age-related wear and tear on the spine
  • Hereditary conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis

What are the risk factors for Spondylarthrosis?

The most common factors that contribute to spondylarthrosis are:

Age

As people age, their bones get weaker and more brittle. This means that they are more susceptible to stress fractures and other injuries.

Genetics

If your parents had spondylarthrosis, you may have a higher risk of developing it yourself.

Trauma

Injury can cause the vertebrae to break down more quickly than normal, leading to inflammation and pain.

How to prevent Spondylarthrosis?

Spondylarthrosis is a degenerative condition of the joints in the spine. The most common cause of spondylarthrosis is osteoarthritis, which is an age-related disorder that causes wear and tear on the joints.

Spondylarthrosis can be prevented with regular exercise, especially weight-bearing exercises such as running, jogging, walking and dancing. The exercises help build up your bones and muscles to help protect against injury.

You should also make sure to drink plenty of water every day to keep your joints lubricated and moving smoothly.

Recommended Exercise

Back

What are the exercises for Spondylarthrosis?

Spondylarthrosis is a disease that causes the vertebrae to become stiff. It can be treated with exercises that help you to stretch and strengthen your back, improve your balance, and increase your cardiovascular endurance.

Range of Motion or Stretching

Stretching helps to prevent muscle stiffness and back pain. You can do this by lying on the floor and bending forward at the waist with your arms extended above your head. Hold for 30 seconds and then repeat 5 times each day.

Aerobic or Cardiovascular

Cardio exercise helps to strengthen your heart, improve blood flow to your muscles, and increase overall fitness. To do this type of exercise you should walk at least 3 miles every day at a brisk pace.

Strengthening

You can strengthen your back muscles by doing push-ups against a wall or using a resistance band around both legs while standing up straight with feet hip-width apart. Do 10 repetitions twice per day (morning/evening).

Balance

Improving balance will help prevent falls in older adults who have arthritis or other conditions that cause joint pain such as diabetes mellitus (DM) or lupus.

What are the treatments for Spondylarthrosis?

The treatments for spondylarthrosis include the following:

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be used to reduce inflammation. These medications include aspirin, ibuprofen, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
  • Bed rest is sometimes recommended if you have severe back pain or stiffness. This can help reduce symptoms and allow your joints to rest as they heal.
  • Physical therapy can help improve your mobility and strengthen muscles that support your spine. For example, exercises that focus on stretching and strengthening abdominal muscles can help reduce back pain caused by tightness in these muscles.
  • Surgery may be required for some people with spondylarthrosis. The surgeon may remove part of the vertebrae that are inflamed or damaged and fuse them together to stabilize the spine.

What brace is used for Spondylarthrosis?

Spondylarthrosis is a disease of the spine that can cause pain and stiffness in the lower back. It is caused by osteoarthritis in the spine, which is when joints become inflamed and painful. This condition can be treated with a lumbar spine corset stabilizer belt.

The lumbar spine corset stabilizer belt works by helping to stabilize your spine while you are moving around or standing. It also helps to relieve pressure on your spine so that it does not have to bear as much weight as usual. This will help reduce pain and inflammation within the joint space of your lumbar spine, which may further improve your mobility.
