Spinal Spondylosis Treatments
Pain from spinal spondylosis can become worse with time as the onset of spondylosis symptoms tends to be gradual. However, many people experience relief from their symptoms with mild, noninvasive treatment options. Effective spondylosis treatment can include over-the-counter pain relievers, regular use of heat and ice, rest, and even regular exercise.
Additionally, maintaining a healthy body weight and exercising regularly have helped many sufferers of spinal spondylosis reduced their symptoms and improve the overall health of their back. Physical therapy exercises to stretch the back and improve range of motion have also proven effective. If pain is severe enough, occasional steroid injections may be recommended. Such injections help numb pain at the source and reduce inflammation of the surrounding tissue.
