You may have concerns about spinal conditions as you age. Cervical spondylosis is one such issue that impacts large numbers of Covington residents in later years. Symptoms occur in the neck, shoulders, arms and hands. You may experience pain, weakness and tingling in these areas.

The severity of symptoms in sufferers of cervical spondylosis will vary. For some people, there are no signs of the condition in the early stage. However, if nerves become compressed or pressed upon, symptoms become more apparent.

Pain in the shoulders and neck are common symptoms. You may also feel tingling in the arms and hands, or weakness in these limbs. Cervical spondylosis occurs due to the loss of moisture in the spinal disks. The cushions between the vertebrae begin to wear out. The resulting reduction in friction resistance can cause bone spurs to grow.

Cervical Spondylosis

About 85% of individuals over the age of 60 will have cervical spondylosis, regardless of whether symptoms are presenting. The condition typically begins to have an impact on spinal disc health when sufferers reach their 50s.

This condition is currently incurable and is a natural result of aging. There are effective treatments available that can slow down degeneration and offer relief from symptoms. Inflammation on the nerves is often the focus of treatment methodologies. However, you may benefit from other therapies that address pain or promote bone health.

In some cases, herniated discs or bone spurs are the cause of pressure on the nerves. A surgical approach is used to eliminate bone spurs or restore discs. It is important to understand that every patient has different needs. At Hanowell Spine Clinic, we will work closely with you to determine the best course of treatment in Covington, GA.

Cervical Spondylosis Consultation

Your symptoms may point toward cervical spondylosis. However, many spinal conditions result in the same levels of pain and discomfort. The team at Hanowell Spine Clinic will conduct a thorough medical investigation. Once we have established the cause of your symptoms, we will recommend a treatment path for achieving effective relief.

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.
