Cervical Spondylosis

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Cervical Spondylosis Treatment in Atlanta GAWhile Cervical Spondylosis may sound like an unnerving mouthful, it is actually a general term for the age-related wear and tear that affects the spinal disks in the neck. Over time, the disks dehydrate and shrink which cause bone spurs and other signs of osteoarthritis to develop. Cervical spondylosis is very common in both men and women and the condition worsens with age. It is estimated that 90 percent of people older than 65 have cervical spondylosis that is visible on neck X-rays.

Many people who have cervical spondylosis do not know that they have it because symptoms are not always present. However, for those who do experience symptoms they complain of pain and stiffness in the neck. Cervical spondylosis can result from the spinal cord and nerve roots becoming pinched as the spinal disks move and do not allow enough space for the roots to pass through. When the spinal cord and nerve roots become pinched people may feel a tingling or numbness in the arms, hands, legs, and feet. There may also be weakness of the limbs combined with a lack of coordination. Many times the telltale sign of cervical spondylosis is the sudden onset of loss of bladder or bowel control.

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, our doctors give a thorough examination to all of our patients. We carefully examine the range of motion in the neck and test to see if there is pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. We believe in using minimally invasive treatment. If you have been unsuccessful at finding relief from cervical spondylosis with conservative treatments, you may be a good candidate for minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery. This surgery uses advanced technology to provide patients with relief from their chronic neck pain. Call Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today to schedule a consultation with one of our esteemed Interventional Spine Specialists and be on your way to finding lasting relief.

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.
