Abstract

The paper presents mechanisms underlying degenerative changes in intervertebral discs and vertebras in the cervical segment of the spine. The pathogenic effect of stereotype manual labor, of injuries and congenital defects was pointed out. Methods of pharmacotherapy of pains and disorders due to advanced degenerative changes within cervical vertebrae were discussed, and principles of their surgical treatment were outlined. (Eds.)
