Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Osteoarthritis of the spine is a breakdown of the cartilage of the joints and discs in the neck and lower back.

In most cases, treatment of spinal osteoarthritis is geared toward relieving the symptoms of pain and increasing a person's ability to function. The goal is to have a healthy lifestyle.

Initial treatment may include losing weight if needed and then, for everyone, maintaining a healthy weight and exercise.
