Myelopathy | Causes

By AGE2B team
January 24, 2022

Many different conditions can lead to myelopathy. A spinal trauma can lead to spinal cord problems. Traffic or sports accidents are commonly the reasons for spinal cord problems. With age, the spinal canal can become narrow because of degenerative processes.

Bone spurs, bulging discs, or thickened ligaments may take up room in the spinal canal and compress the spinal cord. This condition is called “spinal stenosis,” and it is a common cause of myelopathy. In rare cases, infections, poor blood supply, or spinal tumors that spread into the spinal canal can lead to myelopathy.
