Absolutely. Spondylosis, spondylitis, and spondylolisthesis can both be helped by chiropractic adjustments. We are trained to diagnoses, evaluate, and treat the spine in its entirety,
and spondylosis is really common, especially as we get older, and chiropractic adjustments as well as muscle work and therapeutic exercise (and other specialities like cranio sacral therapy, applied kinesiology, etc.) are extremely helpful with this and should definitely be the primary treatment after anything else had been ruled out during the first complete evaluation at the first appointment.
You can definitely advise your mom to go seek a chiropractor for her spondylosis or spondylitis.
Hope this helps,
