INFLAMMATORY DISORDERS

Inflammatory disorders that can cause pain in the neck are

Ankylosing Spondylitis : It can cause back and neck pain.

It affects the spine and sacroiliac joints.

It is three times more likely cough-ear-pain in men than in women and occurs more commonly between the ages of 20 and 40.

Although usually it effects the low back first it can also effect other joints, tendons, ligaments and the chest wall.

Ankylosing spondylitis tends to run in families suggesting that genetics plays a cough-ear-pain role in the development of this disease.

A person is about 10 times more likely to get ankylosing spondylitis if a first degree relative also has this condition.

Ankylosing spondylitis can cause the joints of the vertebral bodies in the spine and the sacroiliac joints to fuse together. cough-ear-pain

Persons with ankylosing spondylitis can have difficulty in moving their neck freely because the vertebral bodies in the cervical spine fuse in a particular position.

The symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis include a back pain and stiffness over a period of weeks or months.

The pain is worse cough-ear-pain at night and morning stiffness is relived sometimes after a warm shower or light exercise.

The symptoms of anklyosing spondylitis last for a long time, the disease is characterized by mild to moderate flare-ups followed by periods of almost no symptoms.

In some cases bone spurs on vertebral cough-ear-pain bodies and degenerative changes press along the spine against nerves or the spinal cord causing numbness, weakness, or pain to develop in the area supplied by those nerves.

In some cases patients are not able to look above the level of the horizon as their neck has fused or cough-ear-pain they experience pain from having a hunched over posture.

Ankylosing spondylitis is diagnosed by taking x-rays of the spine which show the changes along the length of spine where the vertebral bodies have fused.

This appearance on the X-ray is called as bamboo spine, because of its resemblance cough-ear-pain to the pattern on a piece of bamboo.

Fusions may not always be seen on the X-ray, particularly early in the disease.

Ankylosing spondylitis can also be diagnosed by a blood test as 90% of people with this disease have a particular marker present on their blood cells cough-ear-pain called HLA-B27.

Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis: Is a type of arthritis that affects about 200,000 children in the United States.

JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis) causes pain, swelling and stiff joints in children most commonly the large joints like the knee.

JRA has three subsets: a monoarticular form cough-ear-pain in which the disease affects only one joint; a polyarticular form in which means it affects many joints, and a systemic form in which it affects other organs in the body besides the joints.

The systemic form is also associated with high fever and rash.

The polyarticular and cough-ear-pain systemic forms commonly affect the cervical spine.

The symptoms of JRA are due to inflammation of the joints leading to painful, swollen, and stiff joints.

later on joint contractures and joint damage can occur which alters the normal growth of the joint.

The polyarticular and systemic forms cough-ear-pain of JRA most commonly affect the cervical spine.

Patients complain more of neck stiffness rather than pain.

Neck pain is rare in patients with monoarticular JRA.

JRA is suspected when a child has a sore and swollen joint.

Examination of the fluid from the joint and cough-ear-pain blood tests are helpful in the diagnosis of JRA as it is characterized by the presence of particular markers in the blood and characteristic changes in the fluid in the joint.

The treatment of JRA is to alleviate pain and swelling caused by the inflammation which can be cough-ear-pain done by antiinflammatory medications and splinting the joint or providing the patient with crutches so that a sore joint is not used as much.

JRA most commonly causes cervical spine stiffness leading to spontaneous fusion of the facet joints.

The ligaments between the vertebral bodies in the cervical cough-ear-pain spine can be damaged by the inflammation leading to the fact that the vertebral bodies slide away from their proper alignment.

If the damage is severe, pressure can lead to the spinal cord or nerve roots to cause weakness, numbness, and pain in the area supplied by these nerves. cough-ear-pain

Rheumatoid Arthritis: Rheumatoid Arthritis causes joints to ache, throb and deform over a period of time.

The upper cervical spine (neck region) can be damaged by the inflammation.

It is three times more common in women than men and usually occurs between the ages of 20 cough-ear-pain and 50.

Several joints between the base of the skull and uppermost vertebral bodies in the cervical spine are very susceptible to damage from rheumatoid arthritis.

Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis are pain and swelling in the smaller joints of the hands & feet, aching & stiffness, loss of cough-ear-pain motion, fatigue and low grade fever.

Small lumps which are also called as rheumatoid nodules also appear on the skin of the elbow and on the feet and heels although they are usually not painful.

Patients with rheumatoid arthritis for more than 10 years have a 60 percent cough-ear-pain chance of having some kind of neck involvement.

The upper cervical spine joints between the base of the skull and the uppermost vertebral bodies become unstable leading to three different deformities in the spine.

The most common cervical spine instability in rheumatoid arthritis is called alantoaxial instability in cough-ear-pain which there is in an abnormal amount of motion between the first and second vertebrae.

The second most common abnormality in rheumatoid arthritis is the superior migration of the odontoid which is due to the erosion of the joints between the base of the skull and the first and cough-ear-pain second vertebrae.

In this the tip of the odontoid begins to stick up into the base of skull which can create pressure on the brain stem leading to problems with balance, coordination, and walking.

The third spinal abnormality in rheumatoid arthritis is a condition known as subaxial subluxations, cough-ear-pain which is the process in which lower vertebrae in the cervical spine begin to slip forward, causing the neck to develop a hunched over posture.

The chances of having abnormal changes in the spine in neck as a result of rheumatoid arthritis increases over time.

Patients may not cough-ear-pain notice that rheumatoid arthritis is affecting the spinal cord because this disease also causes arthritis in the fingers, hands, and hips at the same time as symptoms in these joints can mask the symptoms of spinal cord compression from rheumatoid arthritis.

Patients complain they have difficulty in going up cough-ear-pain and down stairs, fastening buttons, or using the hands for delicate tasks.

Sometimes, these problems are actually caused by rheumatoid arthritis of the cervical spine.

In patients with rheumatoid arthritis and who have difficulty in using their hands or are feeling unsteady on their feet may have involvement cough-ear-pain of their neck.

How do you find out what is causing your Neck Pain? Doctor's diagnose the causes of neck pain by taking a comprehensive medical history by asking you a series of detailed questions about the neck pain, your general health, your family history, your health risks, cough-ear-pain and much more.

MECHANICAL CAUSES

Mechanical cough-ear-pain causes that can cause pain in the neck are

Degenerative Disc: Degenerative disc disease (DDD) occurs as part of the natural process of growing older.

As people age the intervertebral discs lose their flexibility, elasticity, and shock absorbing capability.

The ligaments that surround the disc called the cough-ear-pain annulus fibrosis becomes brittle and are more easily torn.

The ligaments that surround the disc are called the annulus fibrosis become brittle and are easily torn.

Also the soft gel like center of the disc which is called the nucleus pulposus becomes dry and starts shrinking.

Everyone cough-ear-pain with degenerative disk changes in their cervical spine may not have pain.

Also people with normal necks have MRI scans can show disc herniations, degenerative changes, and narrowed spinal canals.

When degenerative disc disease becomes painful, it can lead to several different symptoms including neck pain and spinal cough-ear-pain cord compression.

These symptoms are due to the fact the worn out discs cause pain and do not function well as they shrink, and also due to the space available for the nerve roots and the spinal cord shrinks.

As the discs between the intervertebral bodies start to cough-ear-pain wear out, the cervical spine becomes less flexible which results in neck pain and stiffness, especially at night.

Pain radiates down to the back of the shoulder blades or the arms, numbness and tingling results and sometimes it can also result in difficulties with hand dexterity or walking.

cough-ear-pain Muscle weakness occurs at later stage in the process than pain and it is a sign that disease is progressing.

In severe cases of DDD at the level of the neck, there is spinal cord compression, and symptoms of sciatica, back pain and lower extremity weakness.

The diagnosis cough-ear-pain of degenerative disc disease is done by a complete physical examination including checking the flexibility and range of motion of the neck.

Also the examination includes looking for the presence of signs that suggest that nerve roots or spinal cord are affected by degenerative changes in the neck.

cough-ear-pain This involves testing the strength of muscles and X-ray of the neck pain.

The X-rays often show narrowing of the spaces between the vertebral bodies indicating that the disc has become thin or has collapsed.

Also bone spurs form around the edges of the vertebral bodies and also cough-ear-pain around the edges of the facet joints in the spine which can seen on x-ray.

As the disc collapse and bone spurs form, the space available for the nerve roots and the spinal cord starts to shrink.

MRI or CT scan is also done in order to further cough-ear-pain asses the changes.

The treatment of choice includes non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs and physical therapy along with cervical collar so as to provide rest to the neck.

Surgery is for people who have muscle weakness due to nerve root or spinal cord compression and when relieving pressure cough-ear-pain on the nerves is critical.

Herniated Disc: When the outer lining that surrounds the disc tears off, the soft center squeezes out through the opening, creating a herniated, or slipped, or ruptured disc.

Tears in the outer lining of the disc are very painful as pressure from cough-ear-pain everyday activities pushes the discs nucleus through the ruptured annulus.

There are soft tissue discs between the bony vertebral bodies in your cervical spine that are called intervertebral discs.

These discs are composed of a soft gel like center called the nucleus pulposus, and a tough outer lining cough-ear-pain that surrounds the disc called the annulus fibrosis.

The intervertebral disc creates a joint between the vertebrae that allows them to move.

When the outer lining tears the soft center squeezes out leading to a herniated disc.

The torn annulus and the ruptured nucleus sometimes irritates the cough-ear-pain nerve root leading to pain in the shoulders, arms and the neck at the same time.

Herniations can lead pain, numbness, and weakness; depending on the location of the effected disc in the spine.

In some patients the muscles that are innervated by the nerve root that is cough-ear-pain being compressed by the herniation become weak.

The pain in the neck, back, and arms is due to tear in the annulus fibrosis, pressure from the disc herniation, or from irritation, inflammation & swelling within the nerve.

The diagnosis of a herniated cervical disc is done by a cough-ear-pain complete physical examination of the neck, arms and lower extremities including checking the flexibility and range of motion of the neck, presence of signs that suggest that nerve roots or spinal cord are affected by the herniation.

This includes testing reflexes and the strength of the muscles.

X-rays cough-ear-pain are also performed but are usually normal because the disc is composed of soft tissue which does not show up on a X-ray.

MRI is useful for locating the disc herniations and also finding out where the nerve roots or spinal cord are being compressed, while a CT is cough-ear-pain done to evaluate the bony structure in the cervical spine, which shows the amount of space that is available for the nerve roots and spinal cord.

The treatment of choice is non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs and physical therapy along with cervical collar so as to provide rest to cough-ear-pain the neck.

Surgery is for people who have muscle weakness due to nerve root or spinal cord compression as muscle weakness is a definite sign that the nerves are being injured and that relieving the pressure on the nerves is critical.

Myelopathy: Myelopathy means that there is cough-ear-pain something wrong with the spinal cord which is usually at a later stage of cervical spine disease, and is often first detected as difficulty walking due to generalized weakness or problems with balance and coordination.

This occurs commonly in the elderly and one of the reasons that these symptoms cough-ear-pain occur is that bone spurs and other degenerative changes in the cervical spine squeeze the spinal cord.

It is most commonly caused by spinal stenosis (which is described in detail below) .

In the later stages of spinal degeneration, bone spurs and arthritic changes makes the space in cough-ear-pain the spinal canal much smaller.

Determining the amount of weakness that is present is used to assess the severity of myelopathy.

As per the system of Nurick, myelopathy is graded from 0 to 5 (5 being the most severe) .

Myelopathy develops gradually.

Patients who have cough-ear-pain myelopathy have difficulty with tasks that require coordination, e.g.

walking up and down stairs, fastening buttons.

Patients with long history of neck pain, changes in coordination and weakness should visit their physicians as soon as possible.

Surgery is best suited for patients with myelopathy and have evidence cough-ear-pain of muscle weakness that is being caused by nerve root or spinal cord compression and that relieving the pressure on the nerves is critical.

Although the benefits of surgery should be weighed against the risks involved as patients with myelopathy are often old and frail.

Radiculopathy: Is cough-ear-pain used to describe pain, other symptoms like numbness, tingling, and weakness in arms or legs that is caused by some pathology in the nerve roots.

This condition is caused by direct pressure from a herniated disc or degenerative changes that causes irritation and inflammation of the nerve roots.

cough-ear-pain Radiculopathy usually results in pain and numbness that is felt in the arms or legs of the area of skin supplied the by sensory fibers of the nerve root, along with weakness in the muscles that are supplied by the same nerve root.

The number of roots that are cough-ear-pain involved vary from one to several and it sometimes also affects both sides of the body at the same time.

The most common symptom is pain that radiates down into the arms from the neck.

Sensory symptoms are more common than motor symptoms and that muscle weakness is cough-ear-pain a sign that the nerve compression is severe.

The pain can be dull, aching, and difficult to localize, to sharp, burning, and easy to pinpoint.

Radiculopathy can lead to hypersensitivity to touch as well as numbness in the area of skin that is supplied by the nerve root. cough-ear-pain

Pain in the arms and neck is usually the first sign that the nerve roots are irritated by some pathology in the neck.

Symptoms such as numbness and tingling, and weakness in the muscles of the arms are warning signs that the condition may be more serious.

cough-ear-pain Weakness in the arms is a definite sign that you should see a physician.

The diagnosis of the condition is done by a complete physical examination including checking the flexibility and range of motion of the neck, presence of signs that suggest that nerve roots or spinal cord.

cough-ear-pain This includes testing reflexes and the strength of the muscles.

X-rays are also performed but are usually normal because the disc is composed of soft tissue which does not show up on a X-ray.

MRI is useful for locating where the nerve roots or spinal cord are being cough-ear-pain compressed, while a CT is done to evaluate the bony structure in the cervical spine, which shows the amount of space that is available for the nerve roots and spinal cord.

The treatment of choice is non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs and physical therapy along with cervical collar so cough-ear-pain as to provide rest to the neck.

Surgery is for people who have muscle weakness due to nerve root or spinal cord compression as muscle weakness is a definite sign that the nerves are being injured and that relieving the pressure on the nerves is critical.

Spondylosis: cough-ear-pain Cervical spondylolysis is the result of the narrowing of the spinal canal in the neck compressing the spinal cord or spinal nerve roots.

It is the fracture or defect in the pars anticulars (part of the bone between each of the joints of the back) which results in the cough-ear-pain vertebral body to slide forward on the next vertebrae.

It can be unilateral or bilateral and it is usually due to a developmental defect but it can also be as the result of a fracture.

Spondylolysis affects the area of the vertebra called the pedicle which is the cough-ear-pain part of the bony ring that protects the spinal nerves.

It often affects middle aged and older people who have degenerative discs and vertebrae in their neck.

When a spondylolysis is present, the back part of the vertebra and the facet joints are not connected to the body cough-ear-pain except by soft tissue.

Symptoms of cervical spondylolysis can be caused by either the spinal cord compression or nerve root damage which is due to the instability of the spinal segment.

If the spinal cord is compressed the patient may notice a change in the way they walk cough-ear-pain as the leg movements become jerky.

The patient also suffers from general neck pain because of nerve root damage along with weakness in one or both arms.

MRI is used to determine if the spinal cord is narrowing and also to determine where the narrowing is occurring, degree cough-ear-pain of compression, and if nerve roots are involved.

Non surgical treatment is helpful in stabilizing the problems caused by cervical spondylolysis, although if compression progresses surgery is necessary.

Stenosis: Cervical Stenosis is the narrowing of the vertebrae in the neck.

It is a degenerative disease where cough-ear-pain the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord and nerve roots.

Patients with severe cervical stenosis may experience shooting pain that feels like an electric shock when they flex their neck and tip their chin down to their chest.

Genetics is thought to play a role in cough-ear-pain this disease.

The symptoms of cervical stenosis are the same as disc herniation except for the fact that disc herniation is acute, while stenosis is a chronic slowly progressive process.

Cervical stenosis is diagnosed when patients with characteristic symptoms and evidence on X-rays that there is narrowing of cough-ear-pain the spinal canal.

MRI is also used to determine if there is narrowing, degree of the compression, and if nerve roots are involved.

Removal of the obstruction usually gives patients some relief.

NECK TRAUMA

Whiplash : Whiplash is the hyperextension injury to the neck.

This usually happens when the head is suddenly cough-ear-pain jerked back and forth beyond its normal limits during a car accident, rough contact sports, or in a fall.

The jerking motion can cause over stretching and tearing of the neck muscles and ligaments and can cause the discs between the neck vertebrae to bulge, tear or rupture.

cough-ear-pain Seat belts and seats with headrests help to prevent or minimize serious neck injuries in car accidents.

The pain as a result of whiplash is due to tightened muscles that are either reacting to muscle tears or are trying to act as a splint for the neck.

These cough-ear-pain tightened muscles can lead to headaches or pains radiating down the back of the neck and shoulder blades.

Treatment consists of hot or cool packs, massage and stretching exercises.

Disc Herniations: The material in the center of the disc pushes out from where it is normally present cough-ear-pain resulting in a disc herniation.

A herniated disc can put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves to the arms and legs.

When a disc ruptures quickly e.g.

in an accident, the nerve does not have time to adjust to the increased pressure and it ceases functioning. cough-ear-pain

As a result the patient may feel numbness or tingling in the arms or legs, and their muscles become weak.

When the nerves stop functioning it causes paralysis below the level of the injury.

A patient with a traumatic cervical disc herniation may require surgery, but sometimes cough-ear-pain the symptoms resolve on their own.

If the symptoms stay the same or start getting worse surgery may be needed in order to relieve pressure on the nerves.

Patients who have a history of an accident and develop numbness, tingling, or weakness in their arms or legs need cough-ear-pain emergency surgery and may also need special care to be taken to a hospital.

Spinal cord injuries: Spinal cord injury occurs when the cord is crushed, stretched or torn by accident.

More than half of spinal injuries involve the cervical spine and most of them happen to cough-ear-pain young men.

Spinal cord injuries are classified according to the level of the spine where it is damaged.

The first 7 vertebrae in the cervical spine are called C1 to C7 and the next 12 vertebrae are part of the thoracic spine, called T1 to T12.

The cough-ear-pain lumbar spine has five vertebrae L1 to L5.

The higher the injury is along the length of the spine the worse is the outcome as this paralyzes more of the body.

Injuries that occur T1 and lower normally leave the arms intact.

Injuries that occur in the cough-ear-pain cervical spine paralyze the arms and hands.

Injuries at the level of C1-C2 usually result in death.

If the patient survives the accident they require a ventilator to breathe for the rest of their life.

Quadriplegia is present in injuries above the level of C5.

Below cough-ear-pain the level of C5 some arm function is preserved.

C6 injuries does not effect the biceps, which means that the patients can move their hands up to their face.

However, they are unable to use their triceps, because the nerves to these muscles have been damaged.

Injuries cough-ear-pain at the C7 level often spare the triceps which means that the patient can use a wheelchair, transfer themselves from a chair to a bed, and use a knife and fork.

Fractures and dislocations: Treatment should be quickly introduced in order to reduce pain, stabilize the neck and cough-ear-pain prevent pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.

Fractures and dislocations of the cervical spine are serious injuries because of the potential for damage to the spinal cord if the patient is not taken care of very carefully.

The type of fracture that occurs depends on the magnitude cough-ear-pain of the force, spacial orientation, location of the fracture.

Stable fractures are those in which the posterior ligaments remain in tact, while instable fractures results from tears of the posterior ligaments.

A vertical compression fracture with central decompression is like a simple compression fracture but the force has cough-ear-pain a greater magnitude.

A tear drop fracture is as a result of a high magnitude force.

There is significant cord damage caused by vertebral fragments being driven into the spinal cord.

Dislocations of the spine is referred to as a subluxation.

In this situation there is cough-ear-pain no side by side position between the joint surfaces.

Extension dislocations in the cervical spine are often missed on an X-ray.

In an extension dislocation the posterior ligaments remain intact making the dislocation stable.

In a extension dislocation there is a tear in the anterior longitudinal ligament. cough-ear-pain

Often a simple fracture without neurologic complications can heal by bed rest.

TUMOR'S OF THE NECK

Benign Tumors

Osteoid Osteomas: Is a benign tumor that has affects the posterior part of the vertebra during adolescence.

It occurs primarily in the pedicle and the posterior elements, not in the vertebral body.

It presents cough-ear-pain as unrelenting pain which is worse at night, and sensitive to aspirin or non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs e.g.

Advil.

It may be difficult to detect on a X-rays, but a bone scan can easily detect the tumor.

Treatment includes prolonged use of NSAID's, surgery, or radio cough-ear-pain frequency ablation.

Recurrence is rare with surgery or ablation.

Osteblastomas: Osteblastomas are bigger than osteoid osteomas and are greater than 2 cm in diameter.

They have a tendency to affect the posterior part of the spine, cause pain, be aggressive and usually require surgical resection.

cough-ear-pain Recurrence rates are about 10% after surgery.

Aneurysmal Bone Cysts: These are benign tumors that occur in the cervical spine and affect posterior elements of the vertebrae.

They affect normally affect adolescents, present with pain and cause neurological symptoms occasionally.

The treatment of choice is removal cough-ear-pain of the tumor; decompression of the spinal elements may be required.

Giant Cell Tumors: They affect the vertebral body, can be aggressive and also spread sometimes.

They present with pain as well as neurological symptoms.

Most of the people who are affected are about 20 to cough-ear-pain 40 years old.

Treatment is surgery and in some cases radiation and embolization of the tumor.

Incomplete removal of the tumor can result in malignant transformation of the tumor.

Eosinophilic Granuloma: Is a benign lesion that presents with pain and radiographic finding of vertebra plana which cough-ear-pain is like a collapse of the vertebral body.

These tumors occur by themselves, or as part of a syndrome which also involves many bones and organs.

Many of these tumors are managed without surgery or with low dose radiation.

Enchondromas: Enchondromas are tumors which are made cough-ear-pain of cartilage.

They sometimes enlarge and impinge on the spinal canal.

The treatment of choice is surgery.

A dramatic increase in size requires biopsy of the tumor.

Malignant Tumors

Metastatic disease: Most common sites which metastasize are the breast, prostate, kidney, thyroid, and lung. cough-ear-pain

Tumor cells can reach the vertebral column by the venous and the arterial system.

The spine and its surrounding parts have a good blood supply and drain many structures of the lower abdomen by the a number of veins called Batson's Plexus.

The lymphatic system can also cough-ear-pain spread metastatic tumor cells.

Tumors that spread to the spinal column cause significant pain as they are large and put pressure on the spinal cord, leading to pain and loss of normal function in the bowel, bladder and the legs.

The treatment of metastatic cancer is usually pain cough-ear-pain relief, removing pressure on the spinal cord and preserving the patient's quality of life.

Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy are used to reduce pain associated with metastatic cancers.

Myeloma: Is the most common malignant tumor of the bone.

It affects adults older than 40 years of cough-ear-pain age.

It is generalized and involves multiple bones but pain and involvement of the spine is the more common.

Majority of patients have vertebrae that are involved while only a fewer number have vertebral pain.

Chemotherapy and surgery are the recommended methods of treatment.

Osteosarcoma: cough-ear-pain Is the second most common malignant tumor of bone.

It generally affects adolescents and older people.

It is rare for osteosarcoma to occur in the spine.

Leukemia: Leukemia can also present with neck pain as a result of the cancer growing in the bone marrow of cough-ear-pain the vertebrae.

Although, the common symptoms of leukemia such as fevers, fatigue, bruising, bleeding, and anemia are noticeable before neck pain begins to occur.

How do you find out what is causing your Neck Pain? Doctor's diagnose the causes of neck pain by taking a comprehensive medical cough-ear-pain history by asking you a series of detailed questions about the neck pain, your general health, your family history, your health risks, and much more.
