A friend has been diagnosed with cervical spondylosis. Please see her film. How serious is cervical spondylosis? Does it have to be operated on? specify
Just see the degeneration of cervical vertebra and straightening of physiological curvature. You can't see the severity from this film alone. It's best to do a magnetic resonance examination of cervical vertebra, which can clarify the degree of spinal cord compression and nerve root compression. Combined with the patient's signs, the current symptoms can accurately judge the severity of cervical spondylosis
This film does not confirm whether there is cervical spondylosis. Cervical spondylosis can be diagnosed by checking the MRI of the cervical spine. At ordinary times, we should reduce head lowering activities and do more Yanfei movements. Cervical traction treatment is also needed, once a day for 30 minutes for two weeks.
From the picture, the curvature of the cervical spine is a little straightened, accompanied by hyperosteogeny, but it is uncertain whether surgery is needed simply by one film
We need to further check the CT and MRI, and observe the compression of spinal cord and nerve root before we can determine whether surgical treatment is needed
