Our approach focuses on correcting the curves of your spine, addressing the underlying issues that cause pain and associated symptoms.

In this article, we aim to provide accurate information, debunk common misconceptions, and shed light on the alternatives available for successful cervical spondylosis therapy in Singapore.

Understanding Cervical Spondylosis

Cervical spondylosis refers to the degeneration of bones and discs in the neck region. This degeneration prompts the bone in the vertebrae to undergo a repair process that results in the formation of bone spurs. These abnormal growths protrude from the spinal column, causing a narrowing of the spinal canal and giving rise to characteristic symptoms.

Cervical spondylosis refers to the degeneration that can affect the bones and tissues in the neck. It is a common condition that can lead to neck pain, stiffness, and headaches. In some cases, cervical spondylosis can result in nerve compression, causing additional symptoms such as radiating pain, pins and needles sensation in the arms and legs, as well as loss of coordination and difficulty walking.

Symptoms of cervical spondylosis often come and go, with intermittent flare-ups followed by periods of relief. However, for approximately 1 in 10 individuals, the pain becomes chronic and persistent.

Causes of Cervical Spondylosis

Cervical spondylosis is primarily a result of the natural aging process, as the bones and tissues in the neck undergo degenerative changes over time.

Factors that contribute to cervical spondylosis include:

  1. Drying out and shrinking of spinal discs.
  2. Stiffening of ligaments in the neck.
    These age-related changes can lead to the development of cervical spondylosis to some degree.
  3. Segmental instability after trauma.
  4. Poor segmental alignment leading to extra stress and strain.

Types of Spondylosis

Spondylosis is a term that encompasses various forms of non-inflammatory arthritis. While cervical spondylosis specifically affects the neck, there are other types that can impact different regions of the spine. These include:
  • lumbar spondylosis,
  • ankylosing spondylitis,
  • enteropathic arthritis,
  • psoriatic arthritis,
  • reactive arthritis,
  • undifferentiated spondyloarthritis,
  • juvenile spondyloarthritis,
  • axial spondyloarthritis,
  • peripheral spondyloarthritis.
Each type has its own unique characteristics and treatment considerations. Besides for lumbar spondylosis it is advisable to consult medical doctors who can provide expert guidance for your treatment. They possess the knowledge and expertise to recommend appropriate approaches based on your individual condition.

Cervical spondylosis can cause headaches that manifest in both the front and back of the head, often resembling migraines.

Who is Affected by Cervical Spondylosis?

Cervical spondylosis is a prevalent condition, affecting a significant portion of the population. It is estimated that approximately 9 out of 10 adults will experience some degree of cervical spondylosis by the time they reach the age of 60. However, it is important to note that the severity of symptoms can vary widely among individuals.

Exploring Traditional Cervical Spondylosis Treatment Methods

Depending on the severity of your symptoms, your medical doctor may recommend various treatment approaches. However, it’s important to note that most traditional cervical spondylosis treatments focus on managing symptoms rather than addressing the root cause.
Here are some commonly employed methods:



Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen, diclofenac, or naproxen are frequently prescribed to alleviate pain associated with cervical spondylosis. While these medications may provide temporary relief, they do not address the underlying cause or the overall effects of the condition. By merely numbing the pain, individuals may inadvertently continue to engage in activities that further damage the affected areas, exacerbating mobility issues and pain.

Neck Brace

Neck Brace

Wearing a neck brace or collar may offer temporary relief from certain symptoms. However, prolonged use of these devices can weaken the neck muscles, potentially aggravating the underlying problems that contribute to cervical spondylosis.



Traction involves using weights to stretch the neck and create space between the discs, providing relief from spinal cord pressure and associated pain. Although this method offers temporary pain relief, it does not bring about long-term structural changes to the neck. Consequently, once the treatment concludes, the symptoms often return to their previous intensity.

Transcutaneous Electrical Stimulation (TENS)

Transcutaneous Electrical Stimulation (TENS)

Despite the uncertainty surrounding its precise mechanism, TENS has gained popularity as a cervical spondylosis treatment. This technique delivers electrical stimulation to the affected area via skin patches with embedded electrodes. It is believed to interfere with pain signals reaching the brain, resulting in pain relief. Some patients may also experience improved blood circulation. However, similar to other forms of pain relief, TENS only provides temporary respite from cervical spondylosis pain without addressing the underlying cause.

It’s crucial to recognize that all these traditional treatment methods primarily tackle symptoms rather than addressing the fundamental issue. Consequently, individuals often experience temporary relief that quickly gives way to recurring pain and a worsening condition. At Dr Neck Pain, we offer an alternative that delivers long-lasting results.
