Cervical Spondylitis - Overview



What is Cervical Spondylitis?

Statistics show that Cervical Spondylitis is indeed the commonest cause of neck pain in people above the age of 55 years! It goes without saying that this condition is mainly caused by age-related changes due to wear and tear that occur in the backbone (vertebrae) of the neck region.


 

Cervical Spondylitis (also called Cervical Spondylosis) is derived from Greek words that mean neck (cervical) and vertebra (spondylo). Thus it’s a condition caused by wear and tear that occurs at the backbone (vertebral column) in the neck region.

 

Causes of Cervical Spondylitis.

Long standing degeneration (wearing away) of the vertebrae and the intervertebral discs is the primary cause behind this disorder. Now this can be triggered due to a number of reasons such as:

  • > Advancing age or History of neck injury in the past
  •  
  • > Sleeping in sitting position repetitively during journeys or Occupational trauma – lifting heavy loads on head, gymnastics, working on the computer for long hours
  •  
     
  • > Occupations requiring minute concentration wherein people work with bent neck for long time or Holding the telephone between the ears and shoulders for long durations repeatedly
  •  
     
  • > Congenitally fused spine, Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome may be risk factors for developing cervical spondylitis or Any kind of odd postures that put a strain on the neck – when these are taken up over and again, they can lead to progressive degenerative changes
  •  
     
  • > Smoking may be one of the risk factors or Genetic cause may be possible since cases running in families have been seen
  •
