It is degeneration of vertebral column from any cause in your neck. It is also referred as spinal osteoarthritis, the age related wear & tear of the spinal column, which is the most important cause of spondylosis. As the disk starts to change its shape & starts degenerating, signs of osteoarthritis develops, including bony projections along the edges of bones.
The degenerative process in osteoarthritis chiefly affects the vertebral bodies, neural foramina & facet joints. If degeneration gets severe it may cause pressure on spinal cord or nerve roots with sensory or motor disturbances. When the space between two adjacent vertebrae narrows, compression of nerve root emerging from the spinal cord may result in sensory & motor disturbances, severe pain in neck, shoulder, arm, back.
Cervical spondylosis is very common & worsens with age.
1- Pain & stiffness in the neck
2- When spinal cord or nerve roots gets pinched during degeneration of vertebrae than patient experiences tingling, numbness, weakness in arms, legs or feet
3- Headache that may originate from the neck area
4- Pain in shoulder & arms
5- Inabity to fully turn or bend the neck
6- Cracking like of sound when turning the neck due to stiffness in vertebrae & pain
As a person starts ageing, the bones & cartlilages that make up your backbone & neck starts developing wear & tear. The changes are like:-
1- Bone spurs:- Disk degeneration results in the spine producing extra amounts of bone in a misguided way. Bone spurs can sometimes pinch the spinal cord & nerve root
2- Herniated disk:- Cracks often appear leading to bulging disk- Which sometimes can press on the spinal cord & nerve roots.
3- Dehydrated disks:- Disks acts like cushions between the vertebrae of spine. As the age progresses, spinal disks begins to drying out & shrinking, which allows more bone on bone contact between the vertebrae.
4- Stiff ligament:- Spinal ligaments can stiffen with age, making your neck less flexible.
