Cervical Myelopathy


Cervical spondylotic myelopathy is damage to the spinal cord in the neck. The spinal cord begins at the base of the brain and runs down through the spinal canal, an enclosed tube made of bones, cartilage and ligament tissue of the spine. The spinal cord transmits electrochemical signals between the brain and the body. The spinal cord is surrounded by a few millimeters of fluid-filled space, which helps to protect it from trauma and allows flexibility without injury to the spinal cord.
