What is cervical spondylosis?

Cervical spondylosis is an age-related degeneration ('wear and tear') of the bones (vertebrae) and discs in the neck. To an extent, we all develop some degeneration in the vertebrae and discs as we become older. It tends to start sometime after the age of about 30.

One feature of the degeneration is that the edges of the vertebrae often develop small, rough areas of bone called osteophytes. Also, over many years, the discs become thinner. This degeneration is a normal ageing process which can be likened to having 'wrinkles in the spine'. In many people, the degeneration does not cause any symptoms. For example, routine X-rays of the neck will show these features (osteophytes and disc thinning) in many people who do not have any symptoms.

However, in some people, the nearby muscles, ligaments, or nerves may become irritated or 'pressed on' by the degenerative changes. So, cervical spondylosis often causes no problems but can be a cause of neck pain, particularly in older people.

Cervical radiculopathy and cervical myelopathy

Cervical spondylosis is an age-related degeneration ('wear and tear') of the bones (vertebrae) and discs in the neck. It can progress to cause cervical radiculopathy or cervical myelopathy (described below). Most cases do not. However, it may be useful to be aware of the symptoms that suggest they may be happening, particularly as some of them may develop slowly.

Understanding the neck

The back of the neck includes the cervical spine and the muscles and ligaments that surround and support it. The cervical spine is made up of seven bones called vertebrae. The first two are slightly different to the rest, as they attach the spine to the skull and allow the head to turn from side to side. The lower five cervical vertebrae are roughly cylindrical in shape - a bit like small tin cans - with bony projections.

The sides of the vertebrae are linked by small facet joints. Between each of the vertebrae is a 'disc'. The discs are made of a tough fibrous outer layer and a softer gel-like inner part. The discs act like 'shock absorbers' and allow the spine to be flexible.

Strong ligaments attach to adjacent vertebrae to give extra support and strength. Various muscles attached to the spine enable the spine to bend and move in various ways. (The muscles and most ligaments are not shown in the diagram, for clarity.)

The spinal cord, which contains nervous tissue carrying messages to and from the brain, is protected by the spine. Nerves from the spinal cord come out from between the vertebrae in the neck to take and receive messages to the neck and arms. A major blood vessel called the vertebral artery also runs alongside the vertebrae to carry blood to the rear (posterior) part of the brain.

Cervical Spondylosis Causes and Risk Factors

Aging Cervical spondylosis often develops as a result of changes in your neck joints as you age. Your spinal disks can become dry and begin shrinking around the time you turn 40, reducing the cushioning between the bones in your neck.

Your disks might also develop cracks as you get older. This causes them to bulge or become herniated. You might also develop bone spurs, or extra bony growths. Herniated disks and bone spurs can put extra pressure on your spinal cord and nerve roots, causing joint pain.

The ligaments in your spine, which are strands of tissue that connect your bones, might also become stiffer as you age. This makes it more difficult or painful for you to move your neck.

Cervical spondylosis can develop due to factors other than aging. These include:

  • neck injuries
  • work-related activities that put extra strain on your neck from heavy lifting,
  • holding your neck in an uncomfortable position for prolonged periods of time, or repeating the same neck movements throughout the day (repetitive stress)
  • genetic factors (family history of cervical spondylosis)
  • smoking
  • being overweight and inactive

Cervical radiculopathy

This occurs when the root of a nerve is pressed on or damaged as it comes out from the spinal cord in the neck (cervical) region. Although there are other causes of radiculopathy, cervical spondylosis is a common cause.

Degenerative changes to the joints around the vertebrae and osteophyte formation produce areas of narrowing which may nip the nerve. Another cause is a prolapsed disc. This is sometimes called a 'slipped disc' although the disc does not actually slip. What happens is that part of the inner softer area of the disc bulges out (prolapses) through a weakness in the outer harder part of the disc. This presses on the nerve as it passes out between the vertebra (see diagram).

Cervical myelopathy

This occurs when there is pressure on or damage to the spinal cord itself. Again, cervical spondylosis is a common cause of this condition, as the degenerative changes to the vertebra can narrow the canal through which the spinal cord passes. A prolapse of a cervical disc can also cause myelopathy if the prolapse is into the central canal of the vertebra. This may happen suddenly or develop over a period of time. There are various other rare causes of cervical myelopathy. For example, a tumour or infection that affects this part of the spinal cord.

As the spinal cord is made up of groups of nerve fibres carrying messages to the brain from the rest of the body, pressure on these nerves in the neck region can produce symptoms from several parts of the body.

Symptoms

If cervical spondylosis symptoms develop, they can range from mild to severe. Symptoms may include:

Pain in the neck:

  • ●  Pain in the neck:
  • ●  This may spread to the shoulders and base of the skull. Movement of the neck may make the pain worse.
  • ●  The pain sometimes spreads down an arm to a hand or fingers. This is caused by irritation of a nerve which goes to the arm from the spinal cord in the neck.
  • ●  The pain tends to come and go with flare-ups from time to time. You may have a flare-up of pain after unaccustomed use of your neck, or if you sprain a neck muscle or ligament.
  • ●  However, a flare-up often develops for no apparent reason. Some people develop chronic (persistent) pain.
  • ●  Some neck stiffness, particularly after a night's rest.
  • ●  Headaches may occur. The headaches often start at the back of the head just above the neck and travel over the top to the forehead.
  • ●  You may develop 'pins and needles' in part of an arm or hand. This symptom is caused by irritation of a spinal nerve as it leaves the bony (vertebral) area. However, do tell a doctor if loss of feeling (numbness) or weakness develops in a part of a hand or arm. These symptoms suggest more pressure on a nerve. This is called a 'cervical radiculopathy'.
  • ●  More rarely, clumsiness of a hand, problems with walking, or problems with bladder function occur when pressure from a worn bone (vertebra) or disc damages the spinal cord. This is called 'cervical myelopathy'. Again, it is important to report these symptoms to a doctor.

Cervical Myelopathy

The symptoms of a cervical myelopathy may include:

  • ●  Difficulties with walking. For example, the legs may feel stiff and clumsy.
  • ●  Changes to the sensation of the hands. For example, it may be difficult to feel and recognise objects in the usual way and you may have a tendency to drop things.
  • ●  Problems with your bladder. For example, you may experience problems with emptying your bladder, or incontinence.

Cervical Radiculopathy

Symptoms of radiculopathy include loss of feeling (numbness), pins and needles, pain and weakness in parts of an arm or hand supplied by the nerve. These other symptoms may actually be the main symptoms rather than neck pain. There may be shooting pains down into the arm. The symptoms are usually worse in one arm, but may affect both. The pain may be severe enough to interfere with sleep. The lower cervical vertebrae are the usual ones affected, causing these symptoms in the arms. However, if the upper vertebrae are involved, the pain and numbness occur at the back and the side of the head.
