Cervical Spondylosis, also referred to as Cervical Ostereoarthritis is a common age related condition that affects the joints and discs of your neck, due to the wear and tear of the cartilage bones in your spine. However, today’s lifestyle has also granted even the youth with this condition.
What causes it?
Bone spurs or extra growth of bones to make the spine stronger, which can press the delicate areas of the spine, causing pain.
Dehydrated Spinal Discs which means that the lubricating gel like substance inside the discs, which prevent the jerk to the spine while you perform activities like lifting, twisting or other activities, may begin to dry out, after the age of 40 years.
Herniated Discs which means your spinal discs can develop cracks as you age, and the lubricating gel can leak out.
Injuries such as a fall or fatal vehicle accidents can result in this condition.
Pain around the shoulder blade.
Muscle weakness that can make lifting or grasping of objects hard.
Headaches that occur at the back of the head.
Numbness in shoulders, arms and sometimes legs too.
