Cervical Myelopathy

For more information, please visit our Integrated Spine Care site

Cervical myelopathy refers to compression on the cervical spinal cord from either a disc herniation or cervical spinal stenosis.

Generally, it is more common in the elderly population and is a slow process. Symptoms include incoordination in the hands, a heavy feeling in the legs, or numbness and tingling in the legs. It is generally a slowly progressive condition. It is usually not painful as compression of the spinal cord does not cause pain.
