Quick Reference

A degenerative condition accelerated by repetitive impact and bending, common in contact sports such as rugby football. Cervical vertebrae lose their height and plumpness, so that they move closer together, forming spurs where they come into contact. The spurs may grow and impinge on nerves in the neck (see cervical radiculitis).
