Cervical Osteoarthritis Atlanta, GA
a man with neck pain

Cervical osteoarthritis, also referred to as degenerative joint disease or neck arthritis, is the degeneration of the facet joints in the cervical spine that leads to arthritis in the neck. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is an orthopedic spine and sports medicine practice located in Atlanta, Georgia, that effectively treats many chronic neck and back pain conditions, including cervical osteoarthritis. Our double board certified interventional spine physicians and orthopedic specialists specialize in providing minimally invasive treatments for complex back and spine conditions. Cervical osteoarthritis is a chronic and painful condition in the upper region of the spine, typically the base of the neck. As the condition progresses, it can cause further neck pain and a loss of normal structure and function of the upper spine.

The entire team of physicians at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is dedicated to alleviating the symptoms associated with cervical osteoarthritis. As people age, the normal wear and tear on all joints in the entire body can be affected. With age, many discs in the body gradually break down, lose fluid, and become stiffer. This can also occur frequently in the cervical spine as people reach middle age and older. Spurs may also form on the bones in the neck causing the narrowing of the openings where spinal nerves exit, causing chronic pain and stiffness in most sufferers. Most people with cervical osteoarthritis find that their symptoms are the worst early in the morning and again at the end of the day. While symptoms tend to improve with rest, being inactive for a long period of time (e.g. sleeping soundly for eight hours at night) can cause the joints to stiffen and become painful.

If you are suffering from the painful symptoms of cervical osteoarthritis, please contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today. We are committed to keeping our patient appointments to a minimum each day so that each of our physicians can give his or her full attention to our patients. We work with our patients to find the most effective treatment plan based on individual needs. We look forward to helping you stay active and live your best life. Call us today.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
