What Is C4-C5 Spondylosis?


When arthritis occurs in the spine, the condition is called spondylosis. People with C4-C5 spondylosis have developed arthritis between the third and fourth cervical vertebrae of their necks. Cervical spondylosis can cause substantial pain and progress to point where patients become unable to raise their heads or control their limbs. Patients with less-serious cases of C4-C5 spondylosis can find relief with physical therapy and medications, but surgery to stabilize the spine may become necessary.
