What is cervical spondylosis?

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.


Common signs and symptoms of cervical spondylosis
Most times, cervical spondylosis is characterised by pain and stiffness in the neck, accompanied by headache. This pain gradually radiates to the shoulders, arms, hands, and the base of the skull. When the pain starts it becomes difficult to move the head. Other than this, common signs and symptoms of cervical spondylosis include:
  • A tingling, numbing, and weak sensation in the arms, hands, legs, or feet
  • Difficulty in walking and lack of coordination in movement
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control
  • Abnormal reflexes
  • Muscle spasms
Causes of cervical spondylosis
As you age, the bones and cartilage that make up your backbone and neck gradually tend to wear and tear. These changes may include:

● Dehydrated discs: By the time people approach the age of 40, their spinal discs, which have been acting as a cushioning for the spine, begin to become dry and shrink. Due to this, there is more room for the bones between the vertebrae to touch each other, causing the problem of cervical spondylosis.
●Herniated discs: Aging also impacts the exterior parts of the spinal discs causing cracks to appear on them. This may lead to herniated discs which sometimes can press on the spinal cord and nerve roots and cause discomfort.
● Bone spurs: Disc degeneration often results in the spine producing extra amounts of bone due to the degeneration. This usually happens as a result of cervical spondylosis. Bone spurs narrow the spinal canal, thus leaving less space for the spinal cord and nerve roots.
●Stiff ligaments: As we age, the spinal ligaments and cords of tissue that connect bone to bone, start becoming stiff and lowers our neck’s range of motion.

Other factors that can increase your risk of cervical spondylosis are-
- Neck injuries
- Activities at work that might cause extra strain on your neck
- Positioning the neck in an uncomfortable angle for long
- Repeating the same neck movement continuously for prolonged periods
- An existing family history of cervical spondylosis
- Smoking
- Obesity and a sedentary lifestyle
Cervical spondylosis physiotherapy
While there may be no predicted remedy for cervical spondylosis, its symptoms can be controlled and further prevented with the help of regular physiotherapy. In cervical spondylosis, moving your neck in any direction can be a painful affair because of decreased mobility within the neck joint and spine area. A certified and trained physiotherapist can help you overcome much of the mobility issue and enable you to live a pain-free life in the quickest time possible. A specific need and condition based physiotherapy plan can:
  • - Help quickly relieve pain

  • - Help you maintain and increase your neck & joint mobility

  • - Enhance your joint flexibility

  • - Introduce you to new ways of managing pain

  • - Strengthen your neck & spine muscles so that they better support your spine

  • - Prevent further degeneration of disc, bones and muscles

  • - Stretch muscles that may be increasing nerve compression in the neck

  • - Relax your body and prevent frequent episodes of pain or inflammation

  • - Loosen stiff joints and muscles

  • - Decrease your dependence on pain killers and muscle relaxants


  • The main aim of cervical spondylolysis physiotherapy is to keep you active and develop an exercise routine that incorporates elements like the range of motion exercise, strength work and cardio. Doing so can empower you to take better care of your neck and spine, improve your posture, prevent any relapse of pain and lead a healthy life.
