    Re: cervical spondylosis

    There's not a whole lot they can tell with an X-ray. I suppose they see osteophytes (bone spurs) growing off the backs of your vertebrae. You're pretty young for that, but some people are just more prone to that than are others.

    An MRI could tell a lot more, but my guess is that the doc figured you're too young for the kind of trouble that would require one.

    If there's one activity you should avoid, it's sitting hunched over in front of a computer all day. You may need to drastically improve your sitting posture, and you'll need to vary things up, that is, stretching and taking breaks to walk around.

    Also, you need to do stretching exercises, probably a LOT and probably for the rest of your life. Particularly your legs and hips. And also strengthen your stomach muscles. There are lots of books and websites about this.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "two wheeler". Assuming you mean something along the lines of a moped to a motorcycle, I'd say that those things would be dangerous, but mostly for the reasons they are dangerous to everyone, and not necessarily anything to do with your back.

    All this is not to say that you may not have a more serious condition. All you got was an X-ray, and all you got was a vague diagnosis. Still, the first things nearly all docs want to try for a lower back are exercise, stretching, and improving sitting posture.
