Ayurvedic Treatment for Cervical Spondylosis
"Cervical Spondylosis" is a chronic degenerative condition of the cervical spine that affects the vertebral bodies and intervertebral disks of the neck as well as the contents of the spinal canal. It may also include the degenerative changes in the facet joints, longitudinal ligaments, and ligamentum flavum. AyurVAID Hospitals is a accredited national quality award winning establishment offering lasting Ayurveda solutions to those suffering from Cervical Spondylosis.
Cervical Spondylosis typically presents itself in two ways: you may be experiencing a reduction in functional ability and movements of your arms and hands, or it could be that you have intense, recurring pain (typically in the neck, arms or hands) - or both. Cervical Spondylosis symptoms include the pain areas: in the back, legs, thighs and buttocks that worsens with standing, neck, or shoulder; Muscular: muscle weakness or muscle spasms; and also common symptoms such as low back pain, neck pain, headache, dizziness, sensation of pins and needles, or stiffness
In later stages, spondylotic changes may result in stenosis of the spinal canal, lateral recess, and foramina. Spinal canal stenosis can lead to cervical myelopathy, whereas the latter two may cause radiculopathy. Intervertebral disks lose hydration and elasticity with age, and these losses lead to cracks and fissures. The surrounding ligaments also lose their elastic properties and develop traction spurs. The disk subsequently collapses as a result of biomechanical incompetence, causing the annulus to bulge outward. As the disk space narrows, the annulus bulges, and the facets override.
As disk deterioration and erosion occurs, the uncinate process overrides and hypertrophies, compromising the ventrolateral portion of the foramen. Likewise, facet hypertrophy decreases the dorsolateral aspect of the foramen. This change contributes to the Myelitis and Radiculopathy that is associated with cervical spondylosis.

Cervical Spondylosis Causes
- Age: Cervical spondylosis is a disease observed most commonly in elderly individuals. Among elderly persons above 40 years, degenerative disk disease (DDD) is more common
- Trauma: The role of trauma in spondylosis is controversial. Repetitive, subclinical trauma probably influences the onset and rate of progression of spondylosis.
- Work activity: Cervical spondylosis is significantly higher in patients who carry loads on their heads and in office workers involving long sitting hours.
- Smoking: Smoking contributes to degenerative disk disease, and is therefore a risk factor.
Cervical Spondylosis in Ayurveda
According to Ayurveda, cervical spondylosis resembles Greeva Stambha, a disorder of Vata. Vyana Vayu is responsible for the movements of the body. This is a clinical condition characterized by deterioration of the neck joints and a decrease in density of the cervical spine, with or without compressing the nerves. Also termed as viśvācī (pain and stiffness of the arms and neck, that reduces the function of the arm), it is caused either due to the deterioration that occurs with ageing or can be developed at a younger age due to improper posture and habits.
AyurVAID Approach to Cervical Spondylosis Management
CS is a combination of conditions which requires restoring bone density, as well as removing compression over the nerve, if any. At AyurVAID, Ayurvedic management is both through internal medication and external therapies, including Panchakarma. The treatment is mainly oriented to ensure regained strength and movements of the arms and hands, as well as pain reduction. In addition to this, AyurVAID also focuses on discovering the underlying cause of each patient's condition and providing appropriate corrective measures.
We see particularly strong results with patients who have developed the condition through improper posture and habits. For those who have developed the condition such as cervical spine spondylosis, due to deterioration, health can be restored and maintained, while the progress of deterioration is simultaneously arrested through Ayurveda.
AyurVAID gives equal importance to internal medications and external therapies in the treatment schedule of cervical spondylosis. Snehana and Swedana have been advocated for Vatavyadhis. With Snehana and Swedana, Vakra and Stabdha body parts can be namayita (bended softly).The results of Snehana and Swedana are nourishment of dhatus, increase in Agni-bala and increase in strength of the body. AyurVAID thus following authentic Ayurveda offer the Best Cervical Spondylosis Treatment in Bangalore (Karnataka), Kochi (Ernakulam, Kerala) and Kalmatia in Himalayas (Almora, Uttarakhand) in India.
