Cervical Spondylosis is age-related wear and tear that affects the disks in your neck’s spinal column. As the disks deteriorate and shrink, osteoarthritis symptoms such as bony protrusions (bone spurs) along the edges of bones start to show.
With age, cervical Spondylosis in Gurgaon becomes more common. More than 85% of people over 60 have cervical Spondylosis.
The majority of people who have cervical Spondylosis have no symptoms. Nonsurgical treatments are frequently effective when symptoms do manifest.
Spondylosis is the medical term for the progressive aging and degeneration of the spine.
Spondylosis causes the discs and vertebrae in the spine to degenerate. It is a degenerative condition that gradually erodes the divide. It could lead to alterations like deteriorating intervertebral discs or spine-related bone spurs.
There are several causes of Spondylosis:
The leading cause of Spondylosis is aging. Our spine’s intervertebral discs weaken and degenerate as we age, along with the ligaments and bones that support it. It is a common condition that impacts over 80% of people over 40.
The wrong posture can strain your spine unnecessarily and cause excessive wear and tear in some spine regions. If you lead a sedentary lifestyle, your muscles may weaken, especially your back, abs, and shoulders. Your spine may curve abnormally to compensate for the added stress.
Genetic factors may have an impact on how quickly Spondylosis develops. If many family members have the condition, your risk of developing Spondylosis is higher, and you have a stronger genetic predisposition.
Injuries are one of the risk factors for Spondylosis. Injury-induced intervertebral disc herniation can raise the risk of developing osteoarthritis. Spondylosis is more likely to develop in people who repeatedly injure their spine, just like athletes.
Additional factors contributing to Spondylosis include repeated heavy lifting, joint misalignment, ongoing spinal stress, and spondylolisthesis.
Spondylosis is broken down into four categories based on the affected area of the spine. There are several types of Spondylosis, including:
A form of Spondylosis called cervical Spondylosis affects the cervical vertebrae in the neck region. It is a common form of Spondylosis.
Thoracic Spondylosis is the medical name if it affects the thoracic spine (upper and middle back region). It does not have any symptoms and is not very common.
Lower back Spondylosis, also known as lumbar Spondylosis, is a type of Spondylosis. It is the second most common type of Spondylosis after cervical Spondylosis. The lower back region (lumbar region) and the midline between the buttocks (sacral area) are affected by lumbar and sacral Spondylosis.
As the name suggests, multilevel Spondylosis affects different parts of the spine.
The most common signs of cervical Spondylosis are pain and stiffness in the neck and shoulders. The pain frequently worsens when you sneeze, cough, tilt your head back, or suddenly stand up.
In some cases, headaches may also be present. Another common symptom is a stiff neck, especially in the morning or after prolonged periods of inactivity.
On rare occasions, this may result in the compression of blood vessels in the brain, which may cause dizziness or blackouts.
