Lumbar Spondylosis

Lumbar spondylosis refers to degenerative conditions that affect the lower back. Spondylosis is a combination of osteoarthritis of the facet joints, degenerative disc deterioration and other aging factors that impact the spine. In the lumbar region, this can result in inflammation and nerve pressure, causing chronic lower back pain and sciatica symptoms. Our team at Ospina Medical offers innovative treatments to mitigate lumbar spondylosis pain and improve mobility at our clinic in Midtown Manhattan.

The lower back, or lumbar region, is under more pressure, causing wear and tear that can lead to spondylosis. Most people have signs of spinal deterioration in their forties and fifties, even if they do not have symptoms. Spinal discs lose volume, flatten and providing less cushion for the vertebrae. Facet joints wear down, often succumbing to osteoarthritis. Even the vertebrae weaken, resulting in compression fractures and other problems. The combination of all these issues can result in lumbar spondylosis pain and limited mobility.

Treatments for Lower Back Pain

Lumbar spondylosis may result in chronic lower back pain and sciatica symptoms. The back, buttocks and legs can be impacted from nerve pain stemming from the lumbar spine deterioration. Each patient with lumbar spondylosis can have different contributing issues, requiring a personalized treatment plan to obtain relief. Our medical team at Ospina Medical offers interventional and functional medicine treatments that can manage pain and slow down the aging process. We utilize the most advanced treatments available including injection therapies and spinal cord stimulation to achieve pain management and improved mobility for our patients.
