In severe cases of Cervical Spondylosis, bowel and bladder functions can be affected, and if neck trauma has greatly damaged the spinal cord, limb movement can range from being challenging to impossible, resulting in a need for surgery. If spinal nerve roots become compressed, pain will occur in the shoulders, neck, arms and head. Muscular degeneration may also occur in the arms, causing muscle wastage.
