Abstract

The number of persons suffering from cervical spondylosis, also known as cervical osteoarthritis, a condition due to abnormal wear and tear on the cartilage and bones of the neck's cervical vertebrae, has been drastically rising over time. Approximately 25% of adults under the age of 40 and 60% of those over the age of 40 are affected by cervical spondylosis, respectively. People over 50 who have the disorder are more likely to have normal or mild forms of cervical spondylosis, even though the genetic component of the condition has not yet been shown. 50% of them had cervical spondylosis at age 50, and 75% had it at age 75.70% of them report having stiffness and pain in their necks. Most women and men begin to show signs and symptoms of cervical spondylosis by the age of 60. A detailed analysis of the X-ray results clearly demonstrates that degenerative changes in the cervical spine, which lead to cervical spondylosis, occur in 90% of males older than 50 and 90% of women older than 60.Despite the possibility of developing clinical symptoms and indications, cervical spondylosis is not a disease. It is a degenerative disorder of one or more intervertebral discs and frequently other cervical spine joints, affecting one or more cervical spine segments. Cervical spondylosis is most likely as old as man, and it has been observed in persons from the oldest civilizations, including the Egyptian and Inca peoples.
