Spondylosis Treatment

Are you tired of being inactive because of your stiffness and your pain?

If you suffer from spondylosis and prefer to treat it with non-invasive, non-medication based treatment, Active Solution Physiotherapy in Montreal will develop a personalized treatment plan for you.


Spondylosis is a condition characterized by changes in the joints and adjacent structures of the spine due to aging. These changes can cause stiffness, pain, and loss of function. Spondylosis can affect the cervical (neck), thoracic (upper back) or lumbar (lower back) area.


Spondylosis, or osteoarthritis of the spine, is caused primarily by the natural aging of the human body. It is a finding present in 80% of the population over the age of 40, and can even be detected in 3% of people between the ages of 20-29.

Inactivity is also a major cause in the development of spondylosis and can be one of the aggravating factors of the condition. Inactivity can amplify the sensations of pain and stiffness associated with spondylosis and cause even greater loss of function.

Finally, the cause of spondylosis can be genetic or hereditary. A family history of osteoarthritis or spondylosis may also increase the likelihood that a person will develop this problem.


Spondylosis causes mechanical pain, which is joint stiffness that is characterized by pain during movement and greater difficulty in moving. This pain during movement can subsequently cause people to decrease their daily physical activities, which over time further worsens the pain, increases difficulty in moving and increases loss of function. Physiotherapy which uses the McKenzie approach, with its mechanical assessment of movements in the affected area, is an essential part of the treatment of spondylosis. Our expert physiotherapists analyze and interpret the pain felt during movement, which allows them not only to classify spondylosis correctly, but also to determine the right exercises to perform as well as the necessary recovery time. Indeed, despite the diagnosis of spondylosis, pain and stiffness can usually be relieved with specific movements guided by our scientific approach as well as postural advice. Some will see their pain significantly reduce, or even disappear. Experienced in the treatment of spondylosis, our physiotherapists will therefore be able to build a personalized treatment plan according to your goals, and will be able to guide you through this condition so that you may recover as quickly as possible.
