What is Myelopathy?

Myelopathy is the loss of nerve function due to various spinal disorders. This can be caused by sudden spinal injury or degenerative disease that comes naturally with aging. Myelopathy results in loss of sensation, movement, and even paralysis. Myelopathy is a very serious issue that affects the entire spinal cord, and needs to be taken care of immediately to prevent further spinal disorders.

Symptoms of Myelopathy

Only a qualified spine doctor can determine if you have myelopathy. There are some common symptoms and characteristics you can look for to determine if you’re suffering from this condition. These include:

  • Stiff neck
  • Arm pain
  • Numbness in the hands
  • Weakness in the arms and legs
  • Difficulty walking
  • Poor balance
  • Poor coordination
