What is spondylosis lumbar spine like?

It varies: For many folks it is painless. It is simply part of the aging process. Depending on your genes, some degeneration begins during the teen years; everyone has some by the mid 60s. In other folks, spondylosis can be associated with pain, stiffness, nerve compression and symptoms like leg pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, trouble walking, even trouble controlling the bladder or bowels.
