Causes of CSM

Hello, At 2011 year a radiological examination indicated that I have CSM (Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy). According to my medical history and radiological exams, between 2004 and 2009 years I already had osteoarthritis, but by this time there was no indication that I had CSM. Is the CSM a consequence of osteoarthritis? Thanks a lot for the help you can give me.

Hi Anon,


Welcome to EmpowHER. Cervical spondylosis is a common degenerative condition of the cervical spine. It is most likely caused by age-related changes in the intervertebral disks. Some of the symptoms are neck stiffness, arm and shoulder pain, headache, radicular symptoms, and cervical spondylotic myelopathy. You might want to discuss with your doctor any concerns you might have and what are some of the treatments for this condition. Hope this was helpful?
