Cervical Spondylosis

Aging can impact all the tissues in the body, including those in the spine. Cervical spondylosis is a degenerative condition that affects the intervertebral discs and vertebrae in the neck. Most people experience cervical spondylosis to some extent after middle age, but not everyone has pain or other symptoms. If you have cervical spondylosis and it is causing you chronic pain or functional issues, our team at Medici Medical Arts offers treatment for relief.

Spondylosis is a general term for degenerative wear and tear of the spine. Cervical spondylosis refers specifically to the cervical spine or neck region. With age, spinal discs can shrink from moisture loss. They become more brittle and compact, prone to leaks and bulging. As the cushioned discs between the vertebrae become flatter and harder, more wear can occur on the facet joints of the spine. The body may try to restore stability by stimulating bone growth, creating bone spurs on the cervical vertebrae. All these factors together are components of cervical spondylosis and osteoarthritis, which can cause pain and other symptoms.

Symptoms of Cervical Osteoarthritis

Some people have cervical spondylosis or osteoarthritis and do not suffer from symptoms. For others, the reduced flexibility, bone spurs and stenosis (narrowed space in the spinal column) cause pain and other symptoms. These include:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Tingling in the arms and hands
  • Muscle spasms in the neck and shoulders
  • Weakness or numbness in the arms, hands and fingers

While there is not a cure for cervical spondylosis or osteoarthritis, there are treatments that can improve function and diminish pain. Steroid injections reduce inflammation, and physical therapy can reduce strain on the neck. Endoscopic surgery could be used to remove bone spurs. Treatment is different for each person, depending on the extent of their condition and the symptoms they are experiencing.

If you have chronic neck pain or other symptoms of cervical spondylosis, come see us at Medici Medical Arts. Contact one of our clinics in the Atlanta area to schedule an exam and consultation with our experienced pain physicians.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

Tiffany

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
