Cervical osteoarthritis - Definition


Definition


Cervical osteoarthritis is a disorder of the cartilage of the joints at the back of the head and neck, in the vertebrae of the cervical column (or the cervical vertebrae). It is more common after the age of 50, without distinction between the sexes. Cervical osteoarthritis causes pain, a stiffness of the neck, and sometimes headaches. There is no medication that can slow or stop the evolution of cervical osteoarthritis; the treatments used aim to lessen the pain and fight against stiffness. Physical therapists can suggest certain stretches; heat and good posture when sleeping are also advised.
