Cervical spondylosis is also known as degenerative osteoarthritis, cervical osteoarthritis, or arthritis of the neck. This is a medical condition that results in the degeneration of the discs, vertebrae, and ligaments in the neck or cervical spine as it progresses. When this happens the bone in the vertebrae tries repairing itself, resulting in an abnormal overgrowth of the bone spurs. This also causes the spinal canal in the neck to become narrow. Additionally, as you age, the discs between the between vertebrae that provide cushioning to protect the spinal cord also degenerates. All these changes cause dysfunction in the neck area and result in cervical spondylosis. Because the tissue is damaged at this stage, it is more susceptible to injury. People who are born with a narrow spinal canal may have more severe compression due to spondylosis. The cervical segment is particularly sensitive to injuries and pain and requires special care due to its delicate construction. Therefore, cervical spondylosis treatment is advisable as soon as the symptoms are visible to prevent further complications. You could opt for spondylosis home treatment if your condition is mild, otherwise, you should seek professional medical advice for pain relief and management.
