: : : : : Can anyone point me towards definitive information that denotes trauma as a possible cause for spondylosis?
: : : : : I would appreciate it.

: : : : : Thanks,
: : : : : I have been told by my doctors, that there is a definate connection between the two in many types of accidents. I have asked for information leading to some written info on this also. Each time I see the Dr., I have asked about it, and he promises to 'try' to get it for me the next time I am in. So, If you reply to my email address, I will pass any information that I am able to locate, and would definately appreciate the same if you are able to find this info also.

: : Hello
: : My twin sister and I have been diagnosed with cervical spondylosis and should have sugery within the next 3 months. The Doctors are insisting but we are both having anxiety attacks due to all the negative feed back. So I would say this is not due to trauma but in fact genetic or something.. am terrified though. Good Luck but I would try anything else before surgery.

: I have a child (now 18, diagnosed age 11) with spondylosis after falling on the trampoline and having back pain for 2 weeks. First thought crack in vertabrae was from injury, bone scan showed to be more than 1 year old, meaning (or so concluded) that she was probably born with it. Unless there is an injury to the back that points doctors to x-ray in the position needed to see it, it will never be seen. I cannot find much info on the subject. Has occassion numbness in the legs and sharp needle pains down the spine when moving arms back. Flair ups that are bad enough to send her to the doctor don't happen often, but when they do, it is severe. Will she eventually end up having surgery? Will she eventually end up disabled? Every year she has gotten worse, last year starting having severe migraines, not sure if this has anything to do with her back or not, but when you see your child walking around like she can barely move and crying because of the pain, you would blame it on anything. Most doctors (she has seen 2 different ones) plus pediatrician, all they want to do is cover up the pain with pills. There is only one medication I have ever found that allows you to function, and not be "drugged" but lessens the pain, and that is Oruvail. A non-habit forming, muscle relaxer. Please, if you have any suggestions, or other info. please send and I will do the same. Talking with doctor tomorrow for referral to specialist, if there is such a thing.
