Cervical Spondylosis

Cervical Spondylosis (neck arthritis) occurs when the soft spongy discs that cushion and separate the joints of the neck become thinner with age.

As a result, the joints sit closer together and begin to wear which causes periodic irritation inflammation and pain.

Over time the joints may begin to deform and become problematic by reducing normal movement and by impinging on the surrounding nerves and connective tissue.

Symptoms

The following symptoms are associated with cervical spondylosis:

  • Intermittent toothache type pain and stiffness which is worse in the morning.
  • Reduced range of movement and inability to fully turn the head or bend the neck.
  • Symptoms come and go but gradually become more frequent and worse over time.
  • In severe cases there may be tingling or pain into the arms, hands and fingers.

Treatment

Cervical spondylosis is irreversible, however the effects can be managed well with gentle mobilisation exercises and by keeping the surrounding muscles relaxed.
