Spinal Problems anyone?

I am curious if people with dementia have more problems with spinal degeneration.
I have spinal degeneration and walk with a crutch and now it's my neck spinal bones crushing my arm nerves:
I am curious as to how common it may be among dementia suffers as it all leads to the brain.

Mum has spinal degeneration, but that is due to osteoporosis - all her bones are losing density - which is quite common in older people (and some middle aged ones too).
Ive not heard of it being specifically linked to dementia, though.
