Cervical spondylosis (also known as neck arthritis) is a general term for age-related wear and tear affecting the spinal disks in your neck. As the disks dehydrate and shrink, signs of osteoarthritis develop, including bony projections along the edges of neck bones (bone spurs). Cervical spondylosis most often causes neck pain and stiffness.
This condition is very common and it worsens with age. It usually affects people in their 40s and over, however, patients with cervical spondylosis in their 20’s and 30’s are frequent nowadays, too.
Why does it happen? The reasons are simple:
– Sitting in front of computer for a long periods of time
– Lack of knowledge of how to regulate and balance the symptoms when they start to appear
