Spondylosis is a type of arthritis spurred by wear and tear of the spine. It happens when discs and joints degenerate, when bone spurs grow on the vertebrae, or both occur. These changes can impair the spine's movement and affect the nerves and other functions. Cervical spondylosis is the most common type of progressive disorder that affects the neck during aging. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, tingling or weakness in limbs, poor coordination, and loss of coordination.
