Would you please explain me what exactly spondylosis is? I guess that it is not the same condition as arthritis, but think that is a bit related to it. What is the primary cause of spondilosis? What are does it most commonly affect? Would be thankful to get few words about this. Thanks.

Spondylosis is medical term for spinal osteoarthritis. Its primary cause is aging, but location and rate of degeneration are individual. Spondylosis may affect cervical, thoracic or lumbar spinal area. Degenerative effects due to aging weaken the structure called annulus fibrosus. Spondylosis is diagnosed by thorough physical exam that may include palpation to determine spinal abnormalities and measuring the degree by range of motions like flexion, extension, spinal rotation and lateral bending.
