Types of Cervical Spine Problems


Degeneration of the cervical vertebra may lead to overgrowth of bone into the neural foramen – foraminal stenosis – that sends symptoms radiating out to the shoulder, arm or hand. A herniated disk that bulges into the neural foramen may cause the same type of symptoms. In central stenosis, bone or disk compresses the spinal cord and can cause symptoms in the legs or affect bowel and bladder function.
