Cervical spondylosis is a common spinal problem seen now a day. Though degeneration of cervical vertebrae is mostly seen in elderly people but its prevalence is increasing in early or middle aged also.
Your neck is flexible & supports the weight of your head, so it can be vulnerable to injuries and conditions that cause neck pain & restrict motion.
Cervical spondylosis is a degenerative disease of cervical region of the spine. It results from degenerative changes in the inter-vertebral discs lead to secondary change in the adjacent vertebrae. These changes in the cervical spine may affect one or more nerve roots, the cervical cord at one or more levels or may cause simultaneous damage to the nerve roots and cord. It is an arthritic process involving the vertebrae and is often associated with osteoarthritis in the rest of the skeleton.
The spine is a vital part of the back, a complex structure of muscles, bone and elastic tissue, which is known as life bone of the body. The core of our spine is composed of 24 bones, piled one on top of the other.
Sandwiched between these two bony blocks are cushions of cartilage & elastic tissues calle inter vertebral discs, which act as shock absorbers for the back & mobility would be impossible without vertebral discs.
Cervical spondylosis occurs due to the narrowing of the space between the cervical vertebraeresulting in the compression of the nerves.
