Spondylosis is arthritis of the spine and is often called spinal osteoarthritis. Spondylosis can occur in the cervical, thoracic or lumbar spine. As with other joints in the body, osteoarthritis causes progressive degeneration of cartilage. Some patients are asymptomatic (have no symptoms) and learn they have spondylosis as a result of an X-ray or examination for another problem.
