Cervical Spondylosis Atlanta, GA
woman with neck pain

As 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.

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.
