Listen, as Dr. Wang shares the long-term risk factors associated with spinal arthritis.

Dr. Wang:
Well, the spine has so many moving parts and as you develop arthritis, the movement is compromised, just like if you have arthritis of your knee or your hip, and so, when you start to develop arthritis in the spine, you’ll lose some of your motion.
