Cervical spondylosis occurs due to wear and tear of the vertebrae and discs in the neck. Considered normally a part of ageing process, neck pain and stiffness are amongst the common symptoms in this condition.
In severe cases, degeneration of the vertebrae and discs may be accompanied by irritation or pressure on the spinal nerve roots or spinal cord.
Symptoms of cervical spondylosis include but are not limited to pain in the neck, radiating pain in the shoulders or base of skull, neck stiffness, limited motion of the neck, difficulty walking, headaches etc.
Two other associated conditions are cervical radiculopathy and cervical myelopathy. If you observe ‘pinprick sensation in your arms, loss of numbness or weakness in your arm, consult a doctor at the earliest. Cervical myelopathy occurs when the spinal cord is damaged due to excessive pressure from the damaged vertebrae.
Diagnosis can be through physical examination, X-rays, MRI, CT scans, nerve conduction tests and EMG.
