Many people may think that neck pain is just an ordinary symptom that can sometimes occur on everyone. But do you know that if you have the following symptoms along with neck pain, it may be a sign of Neck Arthrosis or Cervical Spondylosis?

Normally, neck arthrosis or cervical spondylosis causes shoulder and neck pain, and it eventually gets worse as the days go by until it affects our daily lives. The major factors of leading to neck arthrosis or cervical spondylosis include:
- Aging: Neck arthrosis usually occurs in middle-aged and elderly people (aged over 40 years old). It is because of the degeneration of the discs.
- Previous neck injury: People in certain occupations or people who perform specific activities such as gymnasts. They may put a lot of stress on their necks.
- Risky behaviors: Poor posture such as when reading books, playing smartphone, or using a computer for hours every day. These behaviors also play a role in the development of neck arthrosis.
