Abstract

Cervical osteochondrosis occurs in three components of the intervertebral joint — 1. the anterior disc related structures, 2. the posterolateral uncovertebral articulation, and 3. the posterior facet joints. It is generally accepted that the degenerative pathology in these three areas is a linked process, and that disc malfunction is the triggering event that sets off the entire chain.
