Cervical spondylosis is a general term for age-related wear and tear affecting the spinal discs in your neck. As the discs dehydrate and shrink, signs of osteoarthritis develop, including bony projections along the edges of bones (bone spurs).

Cervical spondylosis is very common and worsens with age. More than 85 percent of people older than age 60 are affected by cervical spondylosis.

For most people, cervical spondylosis causes no symptoms. When symptoms do occur, they typically include PAIN and stiffness in the neck.

Sometimes, cervical spondylosis results in a narrowing of the space needed by the spinal cord and the nerve roots that pass through the spine to the rest of your body. If the spinal cord or nerve roots become pinched, you might experience:

  • Tingling, numbness, and weakness in your arms, hands, legs, or feet
  • Lack of coordination and difficulty walking
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control

Seek medical attention if you notice a sudden onset of numbness or weakness or loss of bladder or bowel control.
