Cervical Spondylosis

Cervical spondylosis is a disorder in which there is abnormal wear on the cartilage and bones of the neck (cervical vertebrae). It is a common cause of chronic neck pain.

The major risk factor is aging. By age 60, most persons show signs of cervical spondylosis on X-ray. Other factors that can make a person more likely to develop spondylosis are:

  • Being overweight and not exercising
  • Having a job that requires heavy lifting or a lot of bending and twisting
  • Past neck injury (often several years before)
  • Past spine surgery
  • Ruptured or Slip Disk
  • Severe arthritis
  • Small fractures to the spine from osteoporosis

SYMPTOMS

The pain may get worse:

  • After standing or sitting
  • At night
  • When you sneeze, cough, or laugh
  • When you bend the neck backwards or walk more than a few yards

Other common symptoms are:

  • Neck stiffness that gets worse over time
  • Numbness or abnormal sensations in the shoulders, arms, or legs (in rare cases)
  • Headaches, especially in the back of the head
