The thing is, I myself am suffering from cervical spondylosis and upon diagnosis that I have the condition on my spinal discs, the danger of getting myself under the operating bed came to the picture with an orthopedic surgeon who also happens to do operation in joint replacement, knee replacement, hip replacement and spine surgery. I took a few tests and x-ray so just to confirm if I do have the narrowing of my disc spaces being a worker in the internet world for over 5 years now full time.
Well, just to give you an initial idea on how cervical spondylosis causes so much pain in the neck, see the picture above. Looking at the discs, they are the ones who provide spaces inbetween the bone vertebra that holds as our neck support as well as the support of the spinal cord nerves. If those discs get worn, the spaces in between the vertebra narrows down and this causes some nerves to be caught inbetween the two bones of the spine. This causes severe pain and at worse cases severe pain and numbness in the arms combined.
There are actually so many ways on treatment of cervical spondylosis but if you are to ask me, prevention is always better than cure. Ask your doctor about it. If you feel pain in the neck, consult now. If you are already in this condition of severe pain in the neck and you are looking for a doctor to handle services I've mentioned above, go look for Dr Jose Pujalte Jr from the Philippine Orthopedic Center back in Banaue.
