What is Spinal Arthritis?

If the cartilage that protects the joints of the spine breaks down – in the neck or lower back – a patient may be diagnosed with spinal arthritis. This condition may also cause bone spurs to develop on the vertebrae.

Spinal arthritis is also called spinal osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis of the spine).

Under age 45, more men are likely to be diagnosed with spinal arthritis. Over age 45, more women are likely to be diagnosed with it.

What are the Symptoms of Spinal Arthritis?

Stiffness and pain in the neck or lower back. If bone spurs put pressure on nerves that branch out from the spinal column, then pain, numbness, and-or weakness may develop in the arms and legs. Patients are affected differently; some experience moderate limits to daily activities, while others may become severely disabled.

Common Causes of Spinal Arthritis:

Aging: as people age, there is a natural degeneration of the structures of the spine, which can lead to spinal arthritis. The condition is more prevalent in post-menopausal women.

It can also develop from injury or trauma to a joint, repetitive stress or strain from sports or work. Being overweight can lead to spinal arthritis, as can diabetes, infections and other associated diseases. Less frequently, a patient may have spinal arthritis due to a genetic defect, family history or leg abnormalities.
