Lumbosacral spondylosis is a growing problem among the older generations now. It is an age-related spinal disorder that affects the neck (cervical spine), lower back (lumbar spine), and mid-back (thoracic spine). This kind of a problem is what most of us are going to face at some point in time or the other. This makes it as even more important for us to be aware of the symptoms that are indicative of Lumbosacral spondylosis. Over time, as we age, this problem could develop into a major issue. It may lead to pressure on the spinal cord, usually near the neck, which could prove to be a dangerous situation.
This degenerative disorder is most likely to occur with more severity, beyond the age of 60. Some of the basic reasons, this problem develops are:
- Past spinal injury
- Severe arthritis or a history of arthritis in the family
- Past neck injury that may not have healed completely
