Thank you for your response.

The only way to control or get rid of this problem for good is to lose weight if you are overweight.

You need to watch what you eat and preferably followup with a nutritionist in your area who can give you a diet and exercise plan which you should follow regularly.

Grade 1 spondylosis is usually not an indication for surgery and the pain is controlled with diet, exercise and pain medications.

We usually start with a mild pain medication like paracetamol and then gradually increase the stronger ones depending on the degree of pain that you are having.
