Cervical Stenosis with Myleopathy – The do’s and do not’s list

Cervical Stenosis is defined as a degeneration of the structures of the spine as a result of aging causes of a slowly progressive condition of the cervical spinal cord. Spinal stenosis cause pressure on the spinal cord, which may lead to the symptoms of myelopathy. Cervical spinal stenosis with myelopathy is a common disease in elderly patients of male gender(2)
D. Preventions
D.1. The do’s and do not’s list
1. Maintain a healthy weight
Lose weight if you are over weight or obesity, excess weight places more pressure on the spinal column and especially on the intervertebral discs. Researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles, suggest that cervical spinal canal diameter of less than 13 mm may be associated with an increased risk for development of pathological changes in cervical intervertebral discs. Subsequently, the presence of a congenitally narrow canal can expose individuals to a greater risk of developing cervical spinal stenosis.
2. Exercise
Regular morderate exercise such as aerobics, strength and flexibility exercises, aerobic exercises not only help to slow the rate of age degeneration, but also enhance the general fitness of the whole body, including exercises to strengthen your back, legs and arms as well as keeping your abdomen strong therefore offering more support for your back.
3. Quit smoking
Smoking can increase the risk of free radical attacks of which can cause early aging and aging effects. According to the theory of free radicals “A free radical is any atom or molecule that has a single unpaired electron in an outer shell and highly reactive to react with other cell, which in turn, causes oxidative damage to the enzymes, other protein, unsaturated fatty acid, phospho-lipids, DNA and RNA, etc., leading to aging of the organisms, as a result of widespread damage due to set of a chain reaction auto-catalytically after attacking the lipid bilayers of the cell walls”(8).
4. Eating healthy
Eating healthy can not only reduce the progression of aging but also the risk of diseases that cause Cervical Stenosis
