Cervical spondylosis is a normal word for age associated wear and tear affecting the spinal discs in your neck. As the discs dehydrate and contract, signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis start to develop, including bony projections along the boundary of bones or bone spurs.
Cervical spondylosis is very common and aggravates with age. More than 85% of the people older than age 60 are affected by the cervical spondylosis.
Most people do not experience any symptoms from these problems. When symptoms do happen, non-surgical treatments usually are effective.
Sometimes, cervical spondylosis results in a narrowing of the space required by the spinal cord and the nerve roots that go through the spine to the rest of your body.
Seek for medical attention if you notice an unexpected onset of numbness or weakness, or loss of bladder or bowel control.
