Also known as spinal osteoarthritis, spondylosis is a common degenerative health condition that could worsen with age. Although it can be quite painful in some cases, it is usually not serious. Spondylosis can affect any part of the spine – cervical or neck, lumbar or low back, thoracic or upper or mid back, or lumbosacral or low back/sacrum. Cervical spondylosis affects the discs and joints in your neck, or cervical spine. This condition is also known as neck arthritis or cervical osteoarthritis. If you suffer from this condition, you should seek acupuncture for pain in Santa Rosa from a certified and experienced acupuncturist.
