Expert Lumbar Spondylosis Treatment at Spine360

Lumbar spondylosis, a degenerative condition impacting the lumbar spine, arises from the wear and tear of lumbar discs and facet joints. These essential components cushion and support the spine, yet their gradual breakdown can lead to discomfort. It's important to note that while spine degeneration is a natural part of ageing, not everyone experiences associated back pain.

For those encountering lumbar spondylosis, it is crucial to be vigilant about potential symptoms that warrant immediate medical attention. These symptoms include numbness, tingling, or radiating pain extending from the back to the buttocks, legs, feet, or toes, a condition commonly known as sciatica. Additionally, any noticeable changes in walking (gait) or difficulties in walking should not be overlooked.

If you are grappling with lower back pain and suspect lumbar spondylosis as the root cause, reach out to our dedicated Lumbar Spondylosis Treatment Specialists at Spine360. Our team of interventional spine doctors is committed to providing you with unparalleled care. Through a comprehensive evaluation, we will pinpoint the most suitable treatment options tailored to your unique needs.
