Nuchal ligament calcification refers to the phenomenon of calcification in the neck ligaments. From the etiology, can be caused by trauma and cervical degeneration and calcification of the ligament. In the neck trauma, the ligament can be broken with the Supraspinal Ligament, but also can be separated from the attachment of spinous process, at this time, there may be a wide range of bleeding, and finally the occurrence of ligament calcification. Degenerative changes in the cervical intervertebral disc and cervical vertebra, cervical vertebra joint appeared segmental instability, vertebral strength under non-uniform, and lateral bending or vertebral facet joint, ligament calcification can be displaced, rather in the segment level, this may be due to cervical instability, a overload on the damaged ligament, increasing the chance of sake, even in degeneration on the basis of re ossification at this point in the back of the neck, hit hard. Calcification, ossification and degenerative changes of the nuchal ligament in the middle and lower cervical spine, ligament calcification, ossification is one of the typical clinical signs of cervical spondylosis.
