  10. 10.Lower Back Arthritis

    Osteoarthritis, most often simply called arthritis, is a disease of cartilage. In joints, where bones touch and move against one another, cartilage helps provide lubrication for smooth movement, and acts as a shock absorber. Cartilage is also present in between vertebrae, which are the bones comprising the spine. Osteoarthritis of the spine, also known as degenerative joint disease, happens when the cartilage between vertebrae dries out and shrinks. The vertebrae are thus not as able to move smoothly against one another. The ability to walk and perform normal daily activities can be impaired due to inflammation and pain in the lower back.

    You schedule an appointment with your primary care physician (PCP), who will coordinate your care with a specialist, a physical therapist, or both. Degenerative joint disease in the spine is commonly treated with general analgesics (pain killers) such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), or stronger narcotic pain killers such hydrocodone (Vicodin) or oxycodone (Percocet) in more serious cases. Corticosteroid injections into the joints are also commonly performed, and are a very effective treatment for pain.

    Rarity:
    Common
    Top Symptoms:
    lower back pain, spontaneous back pain, back pain that gets worse when straightening it, back pain from overuse, lower back injury
    Urgency:
