What is Lumbar Spondylolysis?

Lumbar Spondylosis or lumbar osteoarthritis is characterised by osteoarthritic growth to the facet joints – the joints in your neck and back that allow you to bend – resulting in osteophyte formation, sometimes known as bone spurs. This arthritic growth causes narrowing of the intervertebral disc space and may lead to symptoms such as pins and needles/tingling or numbness in the lower back, buttocks and legs. Lumbar Spondylosis is part of the normal aging process, so it is most common in seniors.  However, younger people may suffer from this condition as a result of repetitive strains/sprains on the cervical spine or repetitive trauma of the lumbar spine.

Lumbar Spondylosis can result in limited range of motion of the lower back and in mechanical lower back pain.
