CERVICAL STENOSIS & MYELOPATHY

Causes
Cervical Myelopathy is a condition that often stems from Cervical Stenosis, or the narrowing of the spinal canal in the cervical region. Patients will experience symptoms similar to other cervical compression issues. Treatment is vital, as these symptoms will progressively worsen over time. The most common symptoms include:
  • Muscle spasms in neck and shoulders
  • Pain in the neck, shoulders (scapula), arms, and torso.
  • Cervical Radiculopathy – Nerve compression by a disc herniation, pain, burning, tingling and numbness; on the shoulders, arms, neck, and hands.
  • Muscle weakness
