And what is it we are talking about here? You can read the medical explanation if you want, but you get the picture…

Myelopathy from spinal cord pressure is usually from disk bulges or herniations, bone spurs, ligament thickening from the degeneration (“aging”) process (“arthritis” or spondylosis). People born with small canals and tendency for degeneration are more likely to get it than people born with large canals (the channel for the spinal cord).
