Cervical spondylosis 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 bones (bone spurs).Most people experience no symptoms. When symptoms do occur, they typically include pain and stiffness in the neck. and nonsurgical treatments often are effective.
Sometimes, cervical spondylosis results in a narrowing of the spinal canal within the bones of the spine (the vertebrae). The spinal canal is the space inside the vertebrae that the spinal cord and the nerve roots pass through to reach the rest of the body. If the spinal cord or nerve roots become pinched, you might experience:
Tingling, numbness and weakness in the arms, hands, legs or feet
Lack of coordination and difficulty walking
Loss of bladder or bowel control
