Spinal Osteoarthritis

It is estimated that most people over the age of forty have some level of spinal osteoarthritis. Many people may have no symptoms, especially in the early stages, while others can have debilitating pain in the neck, back and legs. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that affects the joints in the body, including the spinal joints. If you have chronic spinal pain or have been diagnosed with spinal osteoarthritis, our pain specialists at Medici Medical Arts in Atlanta can help with pain management treatments.

Causes and Symptoms of Spinal Osteoarthritis

The spine consists of many separate facet joints that allow it to move, twist and bend. Years of movement can cause wear and tear on these joints. Aging and deterioration contribute to the onset of spinal osteoarthritis as do injuries to the vertebrae and spinal components. The cartilage on the spinal joints may become worn and bone spurs can develop. Some people with spinal osteoarthritis have the following symptoms:

  • Back pain when bending, twisting or lifting
  • Stiffness in the back or neck after sitting or lying in the same position
  • Radiating pain from the neck into the shoulders or arms
  • Radiating pain from the lower back to the buttocks or legs

Spinal osteoarthritis does not have a cure, but there are treatments that help slow the progression and relieve symptoms. Our team at Medici Medical Arts will help identify specific areas of arthritis in the spine that are causing pain, stiffness and mobility issues. Each patient we treat receives a personalized plan to address their condition and symptoms. Treatments for patients with spinal osteoarthritis can include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Anti-inflammatory spinal injections
  • Medication management
  • PRP or stem cell injections

The right combination of treatments help manage pain and improve mobility for a better quality of life for patients with spinal osteoarthritis. Contact one of our clinics if you have back or neck pain from arthritis. Begin your journey to better health and wellness today.

We can help you!

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
