CERVICAL SPONDYLOTIC MYELOPATHY

Cervical spondylotic myelopathy is another form of cervical myelopathy referring to impaired spinal cord function caused by degenerative changes such as disc herniation or bone spurs, both of which may compress the spinal nerve. It is generally caused by wear and tear as a person ages, usually appearing in older patients, though its onset will vary based on the narrowing of the spinal canal.
