Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the causes of cervical spondylosis?

Cervical spondylosis mainly arises from wear and tear of the cervical spine. The wear and tear of cervical spine result mainly due to age-related degenerative changes. In some cases, injury to the cervical spine may lead to early spondylosis changes in the cervical spine.

2. What is cervical spondylosis?

Spondylosis refers to the degeneration of the spinal column in the back that includes vertebras, joints, and spinal discs. The vertebrae are bones stacked one above the other in the back. The vertebrae (top-down) include 7 cervical vertebrae, 12 thoracic vertebrae, 5 lumbar vertebrae, 5 sacral vertebrae, and 4 coccygeal vertebrae.  Spinal discs are the intervertebral discs present in between the vertebrae that act as shock absorbing cushions bearing all kind of stress felt over the spine. Cervical spondylosis refers to the degeneration of structures of the cervical spine in vertebrae that lie in the neck immediately below the skull, joint or spinal intervertebral disc. Cervical spondylosis is also known as osteoarthritis of the cervical spine.

3. What are the major risk factors involved in cervical spondylosis?

The major factors that put a person at the risk of developing cervical spondylosis are age – those above 40 years are more susceptible, neck injuries, putting extra stress on the neck, occupations involving repetitive motion of the neck and positive family history of cervical spondylosis.

4. How do I know I have cervical spondylosis?

The major symptoms that point towards cervical spondylosis include pain and stiffness in the neck. Pain from the neck may radiate down the arm, hands, and fingers. In addition to these symptoms, numbness, tingling and weakness in the upper limb may also be felt. Dizziness or vertigo attacks are observed. These symptoms help in the clinical diagnosis of cervical spondylosis. To get a confirmed diagnosis of cervical spondylosis, further investigation including an X-ray, MRI, CT scan need to be conducted.

5. Is cervical spondylosis related to age?

Yes, cervical spondylosis is a degenerative disorder and therefore, directly related to age. Mainly cervical spondylosis complaints begin at the age of 40 years. By the age of 60 years, more than 85 percent of the people get affected with cervical spondylosis. Injury to the cervical spine will accelerate this degeneration process of the cervical spine at any age.

6. Is numbness in hands a sign of cervical spondylosis?

Cervical spondylosis is one of the causes of numbness in hands caused by compression of the nerve. However, numbness of hands may also arise from other reasons including diabetes mellitus, peripheral neuropathy, Raynaud’s disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, and vitamin B12 deficiency. A detailed case study and investigation are required before the cause can be established.

7. My cervical spine MRI shows bone spurs at the C5-C6 level, what does that mean?

Bone spurs, also known as osteophytes, in cervical spine mainly indicate degenerative changes in the spine. Bone spurs in the cervical spine are the bony outgrowths arising from the vertebrae due to degeneration. These bone spurs, when they pinch a nerve, lead to tingling, numbness in arms, hands or fingers.

8. Can’t physiotherapy treat cervical spondylosis?

Physiotherapy helps strengthen the neck muscles and maintain flexibility of the cervical spine, but it is not a treatment for cervical spondylosis. For best results, physiotherapy and medicines can be taken together. The medicines will help to halt progression of degeneration process in cervical spine while physiotherapy will build strength.

9. I have cervical spondylosis. How will taking natural medicines treat my condition?

Homeopathy can treat cervical spondylosis depending upon whether the condition is mild, moderate or severe. These medicines help stop further progression of the degenerative changes in cervical spine. They effectively treat the intensity and frequency of symptoms of cervical spondylosis.

10. I work on a computer for long hours and have constant neck pain, stiffness. Does it indicate cervical spondylosis?

There are chances that you have cervical spondylosis given that you work long hours on a computer and suffer neck pain and stiffness. However, a confirmed diagnosis will require investigation including cervical MRI and CT scan.

11. Is it normal to get vertigo in cervical spondylosis?

Vertigo is one of the symptoms of cervical spondylosis. But vertigo doesn’t appear in each and every case of cervical spondylosis. Vertigo in cervical spondylosis is mainly an indication of advanced degenerative conditions.12.

12. Will wearing a cervical collar help relieve my neck pain?

Cervical collar helps to rest the neck muscles and relieve pain, but it should not be worn for long periods of time.

Lifestyle changes can help manage cervical spondylosis

Adopting a few lifestyle measures can help better manage cervical spondylosis complaint. These measures include:

  • Regular exercise
  • Maintaining correct posture while sitting
  • Avoiding job or work that puts stress/strain on the neck
  • Avoiding lifting heavy weights
  • Warm applications and neck massages can help
  • Avoid putting thick pillows or too many pillows under the head while sleeping
