Degenerative spinal ‘disease’ is a frequent cause of radiculopathy and myelopathy and can lead to disabling symptoms and neurological deficits. The issue has been under extensive discussion for over a century. Disc degeneration and ‘age-related’ loss of its water content has been universally agreed to be the nodal point of pathogenesis that leads to a cascade of pathological events that are clubbed under the term ‘spinal degenerative spondylosis’. The essential elements in the degenerative process are intrusion into the spinal canal by ‘pathological’ thickening of posterior longitudinal ligaments (osteophytes) and liagmentum flavum. The entire process leads to reduction in the spinal canal or root canal space slated for traverse of neural tissues resulting in spinal cord (myelopathy) or root compressive symptoms (radiculopathy).
