The best spondylosis treatment is at the Spine & Rehab Group, with eight offices around New York City and northern New Jersey. Call for a consultation today.

Does Spondylosis Affect the Spine?

Spondylosis is a type of osteoarthritis that causes constant pain in your spine. Due to the degenerative nature of this arthritis, sufferers often complain of upper back pain along with neck pain, middle back pain or lower back pain. The back pain is sometimes accompanied by hip and knee pain. Since there’s no permanent cure for arthritis, early diagnosis is crucial in preventing degenerative disc disease, which only increases the pain and complicates the treatment.

Dr. Amr Hosny and the arthritis doctors at the Spine & Rehab Group understand the many conditions that can cause back pain. Dr. Hosny comes highly recommended for back pain spondylosis treatments that are personalized according to your needs. Pick an office location from New York City’s Financial District, Greenwich Village or Midtown Manhattan, or try Cranford, East Brunswick, Englewood Cliffs, Paramus or Riverdale in New Jersey.

What Causes Spondylosis?

To understand how spondylosis affects your spine, your spine specialist can show you x-ray images that reveal how your intervertebral discs are wearing out. These discs, which are the spongy cushions that act as shock absorbers between each vertebra, wear down over time to the point of being ineffective. Once these discs lose the fluid inside and become misshapen due to wear and tear, it causes friction between the spinal bones whenever you move, resulting in pain and stiffness.

Seek spinal spondylosis treatment as early as possible if you’re feeling back pain and other symptoms. If you don’t get the condition treated, spondylosis often causes other spinal problems, such as:

Why Do I Need to Consult a Spondylosis Specialist?

People over the ages of 60 usually suffer from spondylosis due to wear and tear through the aging process. The human body gradually wears out over time. But in some cases, people who’ve had a previous neck injury, such as a cervical sprain, can also get arthritic pain and stiffness.

Talking with a spondylosis specialist helps you understand if trauma from a past sports injury, a car accident or even a bad fall may have resulted in your present condition. To get a cervical spondylosis treatment for your neck pain or a lumbar spondylosis treatment for your lower back pain, mention all your symptoms to your specialist during the examination. For example, be sure to mention if you:

I came to the spine and rehab group for my back and leg pain. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The doctors were very knowledgeable and took time to explain what was causing my pain and answer all my questions. I felt comfortable having my procedure done in their state of the art surgery center, where the staff made you feel at ease. They are very easy to reach and available to answer all your questions.

These days it’s hard to find a professional, yet extremely caring physicians office, particularly in the field of Pain Management. Dr. Hosny, Dr. Chu, physician’s assistant Summer and the entire staff have managed to make this happen. Robin helped me many times with insurance to ensure that I got my shots in a timely manner (Hi Robin!). I’ve been going to this office for about three years and I couldn’t be more pleased!


I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.


I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.


I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.


I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.

For cervical spondylosis, naturopathy treatments are effective, such as wearing a neck brace, getting shoulder and neck massages or going for acupuncture. Other spinal spondylosis treatments your doctor may recommend include:

The best treatment for your spondylosis is determined by the location and severity of your condition. The sooner you seek treatment, the more successful your recovery, so don’t wait. Contact the nearest office of the Spine & Rehab Group.
