Compression of the spinal cord in the cervical spine that results in motor and sensory dysfunction affecting the upper extremities is known as cervical myelopathy. Sometimes, severe spinal cord compression at the cervical region can cause the motor and sensory deficiencies in the lower extremities and disrupt bowel and bladder function.

The Link Between Slipped Disc & Cervical Myelopathy

Slip-discs and degenerative changes in the cervical spine can cause severe cervical myelopathy. There are a few causes that lead to compression of the spinal cord in the cervical region. Narrowing the spinal canal where the spinal cord is located due to degenerative processes or congenital causes can cause cervical myelopathy. Ossification (calcification or hardening) of the posterior longitudinal ligament or hypertrophy of the ligamentum flavum can result in spinal cord compression. Posterior bony osteophytes arising from the vertebral bodies and uncinated processes can cause narrowing of the spinal canal. Disc herniation, extrusion, bulges, protrusions, or slip disc in the neck is another common cause of cervical myelopathy.

Published studies link cervical myelopathies that are caused by slipped discs to degenerative disc disease. A degenerated disc is the required first stage in slipped discs. Slipped discs such as disc bulges and herniations are progressive conditions. If left untreated in the earlier stages, they will cause cervical myelopathies (significant spinal cord compression).

Slipped discs and degenerative cervical spine changes are more common in the lower cervical segments from C4-C7. The C5/C6 and C4/C5 are the two most common levels affected by degenerative processes in the cervical spine. Spondylosis of the facet joint or hypertrophy of the facet joints can cause spinal canal stenosis and cervical myelopathy. However, the presence of spondylosis or hypertrophy of the facet joints only rarely causes spinal cord compression. There may be other factors that are causing spinal cord compression at the same time.
