Expert Cervical Spondylosis Treatment in Manhattan, Provided by Matthew Spiegel, MD


Cervical spondylosis is a degenerative disease affecting the bones and cartilage of the neck. The main cause of cervical spondylosis is the normal wear and tear of the cervical spine as people age leading to degeneration of the bones and cartilage in the neck. Other factors that may contribute to the development of cervical spondylosis include genetics, trauma or injury, repetitive motions that stress the neck, and certain medical conditions. Symptoms may include neck pain and stiffness, headaches, shoulder pain or upper back pain. In some cases, cervical spondylosis can also cause nerve compression, resulting in weakness or loss of muscle function in the arms or legs.
