Are you, or a loved one, over 60 years old and suffering from pain or stiffness in the neck? Well, you might be suffering from a condition known as cervical spondylosis. Luckily, this condition is quite common. However, it can be quite troublesome if it becomes advanced and the sufferer doesn’t opt for the proper cervical spondylosis treatment early enough.
What is cervical spondylosis?
Cervical spondylosis is a condition that attacks the spinal discs between the vertebrae in the neck as you age. As you get older, the spinal discs in your neck shrink, dehydrate and simply become less effective. This leads to symptoms of osteoarthritis and the development of bone spurs. Cervical spondylosis is very common among those who are older than 60 years old.
Cervical Spondylosis Symptoms
Cervical spondylosis doesn’t usually cause any symptoms. However, if symptoms do appear, they usually include stiffness and pain in the neck. In more advanced cases, cervical spondylosis can cause:
Tingling sensations or numbness in the extremities (arms, legs, and hands)
Loss of motor control Cervical Spinal Stenosis
Cervical Spondylosis Causes
Cervical spondylosis occurs when the spinal discs between the vertebrae in the neck become damaged or lose their effectiveness. This is primarily due to a malfunction in the biomechanics of the cervical (C1-C7) part of the spine.
