What is Thoracic Spondylosis?

Description of the disease

Thoracic spondylosis is a condition characterized by degenerative changes in the spine in the thoracic region. It is often caused by wear and tear of the intervertebral discs and joints.


  • By the degree of involvement - it can be classified as mild, moderate, or severe forms.
  • By causes - primary (occurring independently of other diseases) and secondary (occurring in the background of other diseases) thoracic spondylosis can be differentiated.


  • Pain in the thoracic spine area.
  • Limited mobility.
  • Instability when walking.


The main causes of thoracic spondylosis include wear and tear of intervertebral discs and joints, postural abnormalities, sedentary lifestyle, and spinal trauma.


Diagnosis of thoracic spondylosis involves a general physical examination, X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scan, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).


Treatment may include physiotherapy, medication therapy, massage, physical therapy, and in severe cases, surgical intervention.


For prevention, it is recommended to maintain a healthy lifestyle, lead an active lifestyle, distribute spinal loads properly, and maintain good posture.


Thoracic spondylosis is treated by a neurosurgeon or orthopedic surgeon.
