Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy
The narrowing of the spinal canal from bone spurs, arthritis and subsequent spinal cord compression is known as Cervical Myelopathy. In this condition, the spinal cord becomes compressed or squeezed by arthritic condition. Cervical Myelopathy can result in neck pain, numbness, and weakness, which can extend to arms and legs. It often occurs with advanced age but can also occur after a major injury. Some of the other causes include: trauma; viral processes; tumors; or degenerative processes such as spondylitis and intervertebral disc herniation.
Depending on the amount of stenosis, and its subsequent resultant symptoms, preference can be given to either surgical or nonsurgical solutions to treat Myelopathy.
