Get Past Your Morning Battle with Spondylosis
Waking up in the morning with spondylosis is a burdensome task. You dread the pain that will inevitably spread through your neck or lower back as soon as you make a move to get out of bed.

Knowing your condition is the first step
Spondylosis affects the body’s facet joints. It’s a condition most commonly linked to aging, with common wear-and-tear being the leading catalyst for a weakening of the spine. It can also be triggered or worsened by arthritis conditions or a rugged lifestyle that puts undue stress on joints.
The concept of spondylosis is simple. When space between spinal vertebrae is reduced, additional stress is placed on the surrounding muscles and joints. From here, shifting vertebrae are likely to wreak havoc with the central nervous system, blocking important signals and causing inflammation. All of these issues develop in close proximity, usually in a high-stress area of the spine, leading to spondylosis.
Sufferers of this degenerative condition are very familiar with its many symptoms. Pain is a universal qualifier, however other symptoms vary and may include:
- Reduced mobility;
- Development of bone spurs;
- Stiffness, numbness, or tingling;
- Pain radiating from the neck through the shoulders and arms;
- Loss of height.
Finally, morning tends to be a bad time for spondylosis sufferers. After laying stiff and still all night, the body has to acclimate in the morning, reintroducing movement to facet joints affected by spondylosis. It’s enough to make anyone want to stay in bed.
Lessening the burden on facet joints
Calling your chiropractor is a smart first step in handling spondylosis. Because this condition is deeply rooted in spinal health, a chiropractor is well-qualified to discern problem points and qualify the nature of contributors to your spondylosis.
Plotting a management course for this degenerative condition begins with a complete physical examination to test mobility and to spot any abnormalities. Discussion of symptoms and radiological imaging are also important. This is all done to develop an accurate and complete diagnosis, which is the first step in determining a qualified CBP management plan.
Unlike traditional medicine, chiropractic offers a natural and holistic approach to treating health problems; one that’s not centered on pain medication. Instead, chiropractors emphasize a restoration of homeostasis in the spine to naturally downplay the effects of spondylosis.
Spinal adjustments are helpful in resetting misaligned vertebrae and restoring the central nervous system. Stretching and strengthening exercises are also important for developing supporting muscles. Other complementary treatments include targeted heat or cold therapy, designed to enhance mobility.
