What causes Cervical Spondylosis?


There can be many reasons for a pain in neck or in other words there are many causes of cervical spondylosis. There are many sensitive regions present in our cervical region which  can cause cervical spondylosis pain. These regions include priosteum, paraverbal muscles, facet joints, and anterior and posterior ligaments.

Any problem in nerves of any area is responsible for pain, sensationless feeling and numbness in other parts of a body. Spam of paravertebral neck muscles is the main cause of cervical spondylosis. These problems are caused by

  • Spondylosis
  • Herniated intervertebral discs
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Myo-fascial pain syndromes

These are inter-related in any case. Bone spurs may cause pressure on cervical nerves and can also cause shoulder pain. Cervical spondylosis causes bony growths on spine, herniated disc and calcium build-up in discs. This can be more painful when it causes compression of other nerves nearby. Blood flow in many nerves is severely affected in this way.
