Cervical Spondylosis Treatment

Cervical Spondylosis in India

Cervical spondylosis is also known as arthritis or osteoarthritis of the neck. Various factors cause neck pain, and with increasing age, the disks and joints in the neck (cervical spine) slowly degenerate.

Cervical spondylosis is age-related wear and tear that causes weakening of the bones and ligaments of the cervical spinal disks present in the neck. More than 85% of the people above the age of 60 are affected by this condition worldwide.

The human spine is made up of 24 bones, called vertebrae, and these bones are connected to create a canal that protects the spinal cord. The seven small vertebras present in the skull base and form the neck comprise the cervical spine. Cervical spondylosis occurs due to degenerative changes that occur in the spine due to aging. The disks dry out and weaken as it loses its water content. This causes the collapse of the disk spaces and loss of disk space height.

This condition responds well to conservative treatment that includes physical therapy or certain medications.

If anyone symptoms, then they must immediately contact a brain doctor.
