Yes. This is due to the degeneration between the vertebral bodies causes one vertebra to slip on the other there by result in stenosis of the vertebral canal.

Stenosis when it gets advanced can cause nerve root compression. Spinal cord compression can also occur when the Stenosis becomes advanced. Other things it could cause are neck pain, tingling, numbness. One can also experience weakness, clumsiness, and numbness in the hands and fingers. The symptoms can be mild, but they can also get very serious.
