Spondylosis is a term that many health care providers use to describe the degenerative changes in the spine that result in the loss of normal spinal structure and function. For example, here are some of the various descriptions that spondylosis may be used for:

  1. Most commonly, spinal arthritis
  2. The water loss and degeneration that occurs in a spinal disc which may lead to a herniated disc
  3. The formation of bone spurs in the facet joints or near the intervertebral discs
  4. The weakening of the ligaments that connect the outside surfaces of the vertebrae
