Cervical myelopathy occurs when the spinal cord in the neck becomes compressed. This pressure interrupts nerve impulses and neurological functions, causing neck pain and other symptoms.
This condition has a variety of causes, including trauma to the spine, infection, inflammation, tumor, degenerative spinal conditions and herniated discs. Cervical myelopathy most often presents symptoms in the neck but may also cause pain or numbness in the back or body below the compressed area of the spinal cord.
