Normal Spine vs. Osteoarthritic Spine
Dr. Ronald Tolchin, Medical Director of the Baptist Health Center for Spine Care, explains with a digital imaging how osteoarthritic spine looks.
Osteoarthritic spine shows some narrowing where nerves are coming out. The condition can start early as 30, the doctor affirms.
Carrying too much weight starts to break down the discs, cartilage around the spine and the bones come down as well, he says.
