Cervical Spondylosis

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Atlanta GA Treatment for Chronic Neck PainAs you age, cervical spondylosis is a common pain you may encounter in your neck. There are other factors that can cause you to have this type of pain in your neck. If you have a job that required you to perform repetitive neck motions or problematic positioning or overhead work it could also be a cause for it. Neck injuries also increase your chances of getting cervical spondylosis. Harmful habits, such as smoking, can also increase your neck pain. Genetic factors can also increase your chances.

Cervical Spondylosis affects the spinal disks in your neck. As you age, your disks shrink and dehydrate. With these developments, osteoarthritis may develop. According to the Mayo Clinic, more than 85 percent of people older than age 60 are affected by cervical spondylosis.

If you are over the age of 60, there are specific signs and symptoms you can watch for. These are typical symptoms that usually include pain and stiffness in your neck. If your cervical spondylosis progresses to the narrowing of the area necessary by your spinal cord and the roots that go through, then your spinal cord or nerve roots may become pinched.

If you have a pinched nerve root or spinal cord, you may experience tingling, numbing or weakening in your arms, hands, feet or legs. Your coordination may be compromised and you may lose control of your bladder.

If you experience any of these signs or symptoms, call Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians in Atlanta for Cervical Spondylosis Treatment today. We will completely evaluate you and recommend the most appropriate treatment to help you find relief from your pain and improve your quality of life.
