Neck and Spine Disease

Image

Neck and spine disease sometimes even known as Cervical Spondylosis is a common, age-related condition that affects the joints and discs in your cervical spine, which is in your neck. It’s also known as cervical osteoarthritis or neck arthritis.

It develops from the wear and tear of cartilage and bones. While it’s largely the result of age, it can be caused by other factors as well.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, the condition is present in more than 90 percent of people aged 60 and older.

Some people who have it never experience symptoms. For others, it can cause chronic, severe pain, and stiffness. However, many people who have it are able to conduct normal daily activities.

Causes of Neck and Spine Disease

The bones and protective cartilage in your neck are prone to wear and tear which can lead to neck and spine disease. Possible causes of the condition include:

  1. Bone spurs
    These overgrowths of bone are the result of the body trying to grow extra bone to make the spine stronger.
    However, the extra bone can press on delicate areas of the spine, such as the spinal cord and nerves, resulting in pain.

  2. Dehydrated spinal discs
    Your spinal bones have discs between them, which are thick, padlike cushions that absorb the shock of lifting, twisting, and other activities. The gel-like material inside these discs can dry out over time. This causes your bones (spinal vertebrae) to rub together more, which can be painful.
    This process can begin to happen in your 30s.

  3. Herniated discs
    Spinal discs can develop cracks, which allows leakage of the internal cushioning material. This material can press on the spinal cord and nerves, resulting in symptoms such as arm numbness as well as pain that radiates down an arm. Learn more about herniated discs.

  4. Injury
    If you’ve had an injury to your neck (during a fall or car accident, for example), this can accelerate the aging process.

  5. Ligament stiffness
    The tough cords that connect your spinal bones to each other can become even stiffer over time, which affects your neck movement and makes the neck feel tight.

  6. Overuse
    Some occupations or hobbies involve repetitive movements or heavy lifting (such as construction work). This can put extra pressure on the spine, resulting in early wear and tear.

Symptoms of Neck and Spine Disease 

Most people with neck and spine don’t have significant symptoms. If symptoms do occur, they can range from mild to severe and may develop gradually or occur suddenly.

One common symptom is pain around the shoulder blade. Some complaint of pain along the arm and in the fingers. The pain might increase when:

  1. standing
  2. sitting
  3. sneezing
  4. coughing
  5. tilting your neck backward
  6. Another common symptom is muscle weakness. Muscle weakness makes it hard to lift the arms or grasp objects firmly.

Other common signs include:

  1. A stiff neck that becomes worse
  2. Headaches that mostly occur in the back of the head
  3. Tingling or numbness that mainly affects the shoulders and arms, although it can also occur in the legs

Symptoms that occur less frequently often include a loss of balance and a loss of bladder or bowel control. These symptoms warrant immediate medical attention.

Treatment for Neck and Spine Disease 

Neurosurgery researchers have used a new, leading-edge stem cell therapy to promote the growth of bone tissue following the removal of cervical discs and the cushions between the bones in the neck to relieve chronic, debilitating pain. When it comes to the painful condition of spondylosis, studies have shown that stem cell therapy for ankylosing spondylitis may be a way to treat the condition more effectively than previous procedures.

For most patients, a single stem cell injection is all that is needed to eliminate their chronic neck pain, and the pain relief can last for the rest of their life. For patients with severe degenerative disease, additional stem cell injections may be needed.
