Osteoarthritis of the Spine

Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of the cartilages around the bone joints and discs in the neck and lower back regions. In very rare cases it produces spurs and this applies pressure on the surrounding nerves that leave the spinal column. Similar to osteoporosis, aged people are more prone to the risk of developing osteoarthritis. But in the younger adults, it is developed due to a genetic defect or a sudden trauma or injury. several forms of arthritis that affect the spine is collectively called as spondyloarthropathies.
