See below: The uncovertebral joints are in the cervical part of the spine which is the neck. They are not true joints with a joint capsule but develop early in life due to the interaction between the vertebrae above and below. They typically can show some spurring and can narrow the nerve canals pinching the spinal nerves. Most people who reach middle age have some degree of degree of degeneration.
