Cervical spondylosis, also known as wear and tear of the neck, is a general term for age-related wear and tear affecting the spinal disks in the neck. It describes a range of conditions caused by the normal aging process which can lead to neck pain, muscle spasm, stiffness, and headaches. As the spine degenerates over time, chemical changes occur in the cervical vertebrae and disks that act as cushions between them. This can lead to bone spur growth, tearing or rupturing of spinal disks, and excessive rubbing and irregular pressure of bones – collectively known as cervical spondylosis. Non-invasive treatment options include physical therapy, heat/cold therapy, braces, and medication for pain relief. In severe cases, surgery like spinal fusion or artificial disk replacement may be required.
The global Cervical Spondylosis Treatment Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.7 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.5% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
