Cervical spondylosis is the
degenerative condition of the cervical vertebra. It usually occurs in elderly
and middle aged people who are prolonged users of the computer key boarding and
cell phone texting. It is characterized by pain, stiffness of neck and is
mostly found associated with occipital headache as well as giddiness. As
condition progresses space between vertebra narrows and causes compression of
nerve, hence resulting in radiculopathy which manifests as radiating pain to upper
limb, numbness of palm and muscle weakness.
Our team at Ayush Ayurveda Hospital, manages this condition depending upon the stage of disease. Management mainly comprises of massage, different types of fomentations and muscle strengthening as well as neuro-protective procedures, which is usually done following a course of bio-purification therapy (Panchakarma therapy).
