Welcome to Myelopathy.org

Myelopathy.org is the first global scientific and clinical charity dedicated to positively transforming patient outcomes in Degenerative Cervical Myelopathy (DCM).

We are dedicated to improving the outlook for people with DCM around the world, through scientific and clinical research, education, and collaboration with patients and the wider myelopathy community. Our community includes people with lived experience of the disease, the people who care for them, and the health professionals who treat them. We have very active Support Groups on Facebook, for people with DCM, run by people with DCM, and for carers/family members.

Our mission is to raise the awareness of DCM globally. You can help us to measure our impact by providing your details. Sign up to hear news relevant to the whole DCM community.

Together we will create a world where people live their lives free of the pain, terror and isolation of DCM with immediate diagnosis, timely treatment, and wrap-around patient-centred support.

RECODE-DCM Research Award 2023 – Submissions Open!

A huge part of our work here at Myelopathy.org is engaging with our research community, bringing the voice of people with DCM to shape research around them.
That is why we are thrilled to announce that our Research Award 2023 is
now open for submissions! The deadline is 12 November.

The goal of this award is to stimulate high-quality research focussing on the questions that matter most to people with DCM.
