Spondylosis (NECK PAIN, LOW BACK ACHE)
Spondylosis is a broad term meaning degeneration of the spinal column from any cause. In the more narrow sense it refers to spinal psteoarthritis, the age-related wear and tear of the spinal column, which is the most common cause of spondylosis. The degenerative process in osteoarthritis chiefly affects the vertebral bodies, the neural foramina and thefacet joints(facet syndrome).
If severe, it may cause pressure on nerve roots with subsequent sensory or motor disturbances, such as pain, paresthesia, and muscle weakness in the limbs.
When the space between two adjacent vertebrae narrows, compression of a nerve root emerging from the spinal cord may result in radiculopathy (sensory and motor disturbances, such as severe pain in the neck, shoulder, arm, back, or leg, accompanied by muscle weakness). Less commonly, direct pressure on the spinal cord (typically in the cervical spine) may result in myelopathy, characterized by global weakness, gait dysfunction, loss of balance, and loss of bowel or bladder control.
The patient may experience shocks (paresthesia) in hands and legs because of nerve compression and lack of blood flow.
Spondylosis whether its cervical or lumbar it's a complete degenerative condition , here Ayurvedic treatments are considered to be the first line of treatment now a days even by modern pathys . in Ayurveda its understood as a kapha kshaya and vata kopa condition were mostly a brhmana (nourishing )line of treatment is followed .There are different procedures in ayurveda like nasya , basti were an internal lubrication is done to the affected joints along with External treatment procedures. These treatments have found to be very effective in arresting the fast degeneration of the joints and also in relieving the symptoms like pain, numbness , restricted movements etc. This would include an Inpatient admission for 15 to 21 days and also regular follow up of medicine.
