Cervical spondylosis is a disorder in which there is abnormal wear on the cartilage and bones of the neck (cervical vertebrae). It is a common cause of chronic neck pain. While it is largely due to age, it can be caused by other factors as well. Alternative names for it include cervical osteoarthritis and neck arthritis.Cervical spondylosis often develops as a result of changes in the neck joints as one age. The spinal disks can become dry and begin shrinking around the time one turn 40, reducing the cushioning between the bones in the neck. The disks might also develop cracks as one get older. This causes them to bulge or become herniated. One might also develop bone spurs, or extra bony growths. Herniated disks and bone spurs can put extra pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots, causing joint pain. The ligaments in the spine, which are strands of tissue that connect the bones, might also become stiffer as you age. This makes it more difficult or painful for one to move the neck.

Other Factors

Cervical spondylosis can develop due to factors other than aging. These include:

  • neck injuries
  • work-related activities that put extra strain on the neck from heavy lifting,
  • holding the neck in an uncomfortable position for prolonged periods of time, or repeating the same neck movements throughout the day (repetitive stress)
  • genetic factors (family history of cervical spondylosis)
  • smoking
  • being overweight and inactive

Symptoms often develop slowly over time. But they may start or get worse suddenly. Symptoms of cervical spondylosis tend to improve with rest. Symptoms are most severe in the morning and again at the end of the day.The pain may be mild, or it can be deep and so severe that one is unable to move or feel the pain over the shoulder blade. Or it may spread to the upper arm, forearm, or fingers (in rare cases).

The pain may get worse:

  • After standing or sitting
  • At night
  • When you sneeze, cough, or laugh
  • When you bend the neck backwards or walk more than a few yards
  • Other common symptoms are:
  • Neck stiffness that gets worse over time
  • Numbness or abnormal sensations in the shoulders, arms, or legs (in rare cases)
  • Headaches, especially in the back of the head

Less common symptoms are:

  • Loss of balance
  • Loss of control over the bladder or bowels (if there is pressure on the spinal cord)
