Spondylosis (plural: spondyloses) is used as a broad descriptive term referring to degeneration of the spinal column from any cause; it is usually further qualified by the part of the spine affected, e.g. cervical spondylosis.
History and etymology
It derives from the Ancient Greek word σπόνδυλος (spóndylos) meaning "a vertebra".
