Dr. Gurmukh Singh

Degenerative bone: Degenerative changes in the vertebrae in the neck cause irregular bony processes, degenerative changes in the disc and ligaments combine to narrow the spinal canal and damage the spinal cord. The symptoms are in part due to osteoarthritis of the cervical spine, but more seriously due to damage to the spinal cord and its nerves.
