In ayurveda it is known as ‘Griva Sandhigata Vata’.It develops from wear and tear of the cartilage and bones found in your cervical spine, which is in your neck.The symptoms may include neck stiffness and pain, headache that may originate in the neck, pain in the shoulder or arms, inability to fully turn the head or bend the neck. Most of the patients respond very well to Ayurvedic treatment of Cervical Spondylosis as the principles of healing are focused on balancing the "Vata" - the culprit behind pain due to nerves. Based on principles of Ayurveda, the treatment of Spondylitis is comprehensive and is based on use of ayurvedic medicines, ayurvedic panchakarma therapy, herbs massage and body therapy sessions.
