Can A Car Accident Bring On Spondylosis

Answer

Because spondylosis is a degenerative condition of the spine; ie - it occurs from the inside out - car accidents do not cause it. However a car accident that injures the area where spondylosis is occurring can cause the spondylosis to become worse. Think of spondylosis as weakening an area of your spine - in this case the discs. If your discs are damaged during an car accident then you could have more problems with pain, etc. because they weren't in such great shape to begin with.
