: I was diagnosed with cervical stenosis and was wondering if this is genetic or could it be work related. I have been an Arborist(tree climber)for 12 years and I am almost always looking up. I noticed about 4 months ago my neck started feeling sore like I pulled a muscle but instead of getting better it progressed into sharp painful spasms when turning my head. I need some help on this. the only info I can find is stenosis of the lower back. mine Is located in or around L6 or maybe it was c6 not sure.

Just wanted to tell you that if they said cervical stenosis, that is in the neck region and there are seven cervical vertebrae, so yours is most likely at c6. The way I understand it, stenosis is a narrowing/compression of the spinal cord usually due to some sort of degeneration in your vertebrae and/or disks. Everyone usually has some amount of degenerative changes from normal wear and tear and age. I would think that the kind of work you do may have speeded up the process. Hope this info helps you a little. Good luck to you!
