Spondylosis clarification

Hi everyone.

I've seen a lot of posts where members are saying that part of their diagnosis is spondylosis. So I wanted to clarify exactly what this is - it isn't an actual diagnosis and has a very broad definition. It's also not to be confused with spondylolisthesis, which is offsetting of the spine. Here's an article to clarify - it can actually be interchanged with osteoarthritis and DDD.


This is an article that discusses degenerative sponylolisthesis.


So, I just wanted to clarify the two and exactly what spondylosis is, as I'd say that almost all of us have this word in our MRI and/or CT report.
