Treatments for Cervical Spondylosis

Treatments for Cervical Spondylosis:

There is no cure for cervical spondylosis, but with early recognition and treatment, it is possible to minimize discomfort and risks of complications of the condition. The most successful treatment plans usually use a multipronged approach, including physical therapy, exercise, medications, and in some cases surgery.

Physical therapy includes range-of-motion exercises that can help to strengthen muscles of the neck and maintain or increase neck flexibility.

Commonly recommended medications include acetaminophen, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen (Advil) and aspirin. These medications can have serious side-effects and should only be taken as directed by a physician.

A variety of surgical procedures may be considered in severe cases in which there is compression of a nerve and serious symptoms, such as loss of feeling or incontinence. Surgical options may include foraminotomy, laminectomy, or spinal fusion. These surgical procedures relieve pressure on the affected nerves.
