Cervical Spondylosis, known as Greeva Graha (neck pain) in Ayurvedic text,s can result due to wrong postural habits. It can be a professional hazard with computer operators, clerks, officer workers etc., or can express itself in old age due to degenerative changes.
The deranged vata energy is responsible for the typical symptoms such as neck pain, restricted movement of neck, pain radiating to shoulders and arms, tingling sensation in the fingers. Specific procedures such as Greeva Vasti, Podikhizhi, Navarakhizhi, and Pizhichil pacify the deranged vata externally, whereas vata pacifying medicines are also administered internally. To obtain optimal results Panchakarma procedures such as Nasya may also be employed.
