I've an arthritic neck (mid. To severe). I'm 64. I'm wondering in such cases what, if any, progression of the disease occurs? Does it stabilize?
C-spine Arthritis. The severity and progression depend on several factors including stress patterns of usage as well as the condiiton of the bone. Osteoporotic females have a greater tendency for vertebral collapse and arthritis. A variety of newer medications can slow this progression. A radiologic study will be useful in guaging the extent of the disease.
