Cervical spine disorders are varied according to there symptoms. Studies
show that approximately 50% population has evidence of degenerative
changes in spine above the age of 50.other cause is cervical spine
disorders are poor posture trauma infection, tumor.
Numbness is very common and significant symptom of cervical neck
disorder. Numbness is
usually caused by so called pinching of nerve by number of cervical
disorder which blocks the nutrition going down to the nerves and lead to
the stage where nerve stops working and this leads to numbness while the
muscle function normally common cause is disc herniation when it blocks
the nerve coming out in pine canal.
Another cause is disc degeneration bone spurs cause irritation
and subsequently numbness. Spinal
canal diameter narrowing pinches the nerve causing numbness.
Any number of pain sensitive tissues within small area can cause pain
(irritation, injury, inflammation, infection.)
there is no obvious trauma or injury to spine, neck pain is have been
caused by some activity i.e. awkward position, exertion, and emotional
Arm or hand pain:
originating in neck and felt in shoulder, arm, &hand is often caused
by irritation of cervical nerve roots located in the intervertebral
formina. Which is made
worse certain movements and posture such as Internet and computer
access. Pain due to disc
herniation due to irritation of nerve root by traction, inflammation,
head pain can originate in the muscles of the neck, which are often
called tension headaches happen in the neck because of muscular
is not more common symptom of cervical spine disorder when present means
relatively more severe cause and requires more investigations in depth
Patient mainly suffers from inability to balance, weakness in arms, grip
weakness, droping, breaking dishes, difficulty in eating.
Spinal canal narrowing is another cause of weakness.
inflammation are rare of cervical spine however, if the infection is
left late to be diagnosed and treated it can well lead to pain and
disorder in spine is arthritis. Bone
&joint infection is life-threatening crippling.
Immediate treatment can prevent permanent bone damage.
result of natural wear &tear that occurs with ageing, certain part
of cervical spine starts to degenerate, as we grow older. Pain that is
resultant due to ageing degeneration is called degenerative arthritis.
This type of pain can be due to loss of normal cartilage, herniated dics,
and bony spurs pressing on nerve roots.
This can cause sharp neck pain,
shoulder arm pain, numbness, and
disorder due to disc prolepses is more difficult to treat. There may be
associated factors with degeneration that should be dealt first rather
than surgery such as stress etc.
spine injury occurs during motor vehicle accidents most commonly, rough
sports or by falling on hard surface such as diving into swimming pool,
this may lead from mild pain, to injuries that can cause permanent
uncommon. Initial symptom
with spine tumor is pain. 80%
