Hi..
Thanks for the query..

If you have Osteoarthritis of the spine then it is commonly treated with a combination of regular exercise and physiotherapy under supervision of a trained Physiotherapist..
If you are obese try loosing weight..
You can be advised muscle relaxant gels and oral medications..
Along with it you can also be advised TENS therapy, accupuncture and steroid injection..

Hope this helps..

Regards..
