3 Degrees of Severity for Cervical Spondylosis


  • Mild: There is no spinal cord compression associated, but the patient may experience pain in the neck, shoulder, and shoulder blades.
  • Moderate: There is an entrapment neuropathy problem, hence, the patient will experience numbness along the nerves, weakness in the hands and arms, and severe neck pain that radiates into the arms.
  • Severe: There is a spinal cord compression involved in this stage. Therefore, the patient will suffer pain and stiffness in the body, arms, and legs causing a limited range of body movement and body balance disorders.

There are Several Treatment Options for Cervical Spondylosis.

Basically, the doctor will start providing the patient with conservative treatment which is physical therapy and medication for the patients with mild cervical spondylosis. If the symptoms progress or there are more symptoms such as numbness and pain that radiates down into the arms (which are signs of spinal cord compression), the doctor may consider providing the surgery option. Currently, there is an advanced technique called minimally invasive surgery which allows the patients to have a small incision of 3 centimeters, thus, enables the patients to get a faster recovery and shorter hospital stay. In fact, the patient has to stay only one night at the hospital, then, be discharged and go back to spend their normal lives.
