Spondylosis refers to the degeneration of the joints in the neck. There are more than 85% of people over age 60 are affected.
Neck pain arising from the cervical spine is typically anticipated by neck movements and may be accompanied by focal spine tenderness and motion limitation. Cervical spine trauma, disk disease, and spondylosis may be asymptomatic or painful and can produce a myelopathy, radiculopathy, or both.
What are causative factors for Spondylosis?
- As getting older, the discs tend to dry out and become susceptible to tears. Body will also try to compensate for the joint wearing by producing small lumps of extra bone to better support of the neck and spine stiffness. These lumps of extra bone are called bone spurs or osteophytes.
- Osteophytes can cause the spine to become too rigid, contributing to stiffness and neck pain.
- If this soft material presses against a neck nerve, it can cause severe pain radiating to the arm, and can occasionally result in cervical myelopathy.
- Slipped discs are generally seen in younger individual and are not as common as the process of osteophyte formation described above.
