Cervical Spondylosis - Symptoms

What are the symptoms?

As the spine degenerates, osteophytes formation occurs which intends to fuse the vertebrae together to minimise movement. These osteophytes may cause the unwanted symptoms once it comes into contact with any of the nerve root or the spinal cord. The symptoms vary with each individual.

You may experience:

  • Neck pain
  • Constant deep ache that radiates over the shoulder and down to the arms, hands and fingers numbness or weakness of the arms, hands, fingers or legs
  • Muscles spasm, neck stiffness
  • Headache
  • Neck and arm pain can be caused by compression of nerves travelling from cervical spine to arm
