Cervical spondylosis is the most common disease of the cervical spine. Clinically, it manifests mostly in the age of 50 - 55 years. The most frequently affected motion segments are C5/6 and C6/7 because they are exposed to the greatest biomechanical load. Degenerative disability of the cervical spine can cause the development of radicular syndrome and myelopathy. Compressive, dynamic, vascular and congenital factors are involved on their formation.
