Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is the clinical manifestation of compression of the spinal cord caused by degenerative changes of the cervical spine. It is a rare but potentially devastating manifestation of cervical spondylosis that usually has a chronic and slowly progressive character. While rare, it is reported as the most common disorder causing dysfunction of the spinal cord in the USA.
