Cervical Spondylosis

Cervical Spondylosis

Cervical spondylosis is a degenerative condition that occurs with aging and affects the vertebrae and discs. It is a type of arthritis in the neck that causes inflammation in the small joints on the side of the vertebrae (facet joints). When the joints become inflamed or bone spurs develop, narrowing can occur where the nerve roots exit and pinch the nerves. Symptoms can include neck pain that may radiate into the shoulder or arm, headaches in the back of the head, “cracking” sounds, arm weakness or numbness. Treatment options include traction, physical therapy, traction, massage, epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, medial branch blocks, radiofrequency denervation, and surgery.
