Hectic schedules, desk jobs and sedentary life styles with long sitting hours in a particular fixed pose is taking a toll on the health front. All levels of well-being are affected-mental, emotional, physical and social. Peeping into computers and smart phones for hours together leads to neck, cervical and shoulder problems.
Cervical Spondylosis is a common degenerative condition caused by chronic wear and tear of the cervical spine. The disks in between (that cushion) the neck vertebrae joints of the bones of the cervical spine are also affected. In many cases abnormal growths and bone spurs of the spine (vertebrae) are seen. Over time, all these changes can compress one or more of the nerve roots causing pain symptoms. In GenX the instances of cervical spondylosis are on the rise due to over use of smartphones or computers, wrong postures and lack of physical exercise. Main culprit is the stress factor that causes the symptoms to worsen.
