Non-Surgical Spinal Arthritis Treatments
What is arthritis of the spine?
Arthritis of the spine is a degenerative joint disease that initially affects the synovial tissues and cartilage of the facet joints. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of spinal arthritis, which produces an immune response that degrades healthy cartilage and soft tissues. Arthritis also forms osteophytes that become bone spurs which can narrow foraminal openings and cause spinal stenosis. Some researchers view osteoarthritis as the primary cause of degenerative disc disease including, bulging and herniated discs and age-related spondylosis. The neck (cervical) and lower back (lumbar) are the most common locations for osteoarthritis.
Is osteoarthritis of the spine common?
Osteoarthritis of the spine is extremely common, with an estimated 40-85% of the US population affected by some form of osteoarthritis of the lower spine. Approximately 27-million patients are adversely affected by osteoarthritis, and researchers believe genetics is to blame for its cause.
