What is degenerative disc disease (DDD)of the cervical spine? There are many causes such as cervical spinal stenosis, cervical disc herniation, spondylosis, and many other reasons. CSC treats these conditions frequently.
Degenerative disease of the cervical spine happens when there is a breakdown of the normal architecture of the various parts of the cervical spine.
Normally, the neck is very flexible. As you may demonstrate on yourself, the neck allows the head to rotate from side to side nearly 180°, to flex forward to touch your chin to your chest, and extend backwards to almost touch the back of the head to your upper back, as well as bend your head toward your shoulder (and all ranges in between these basic motions). These motions are afforded by the various joints of the cervical spine. When these joints and bone begin to degenerate, it causes pain in a variety of ways.
Anterior cervical fusion is an operation performed on the upper spine to relieve pressure on one or more nerve roots, or on the spinal cord. The term is derived from the words anterior (front), cervical (neck), and fusion (joining the vertebrae with a bone graft).read more
