Disc prolapse and inflammatory, infective, or malignant conditions affect the cervical spine are less common risk factors.

- Immune system diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS),polymyalgia rheumatica
- Neurological diseases such as stroke, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis
