Abstract:

Cervical Spondylosis is one among the degenerative disc ailments. According to a recent study, the middle-aged population shows increased incidence of degenerative disc changes. This may be because of faulty regimen and lifestyle. The study conducted here is a combination of different Ayurvedic modalities to get maximum relief in a minimal period. More attentiveness is on the Bahi Parimarjana chikitsa (External purification therapy) on the affected part that being Greeva (neck) and Manya pradesha (cervical spine region). At the initial stage because of Kapha avarana (Kapha obstruction) there is stiffness and later when it becomes chronic due to improper usage of cervical spine, Vata alone leads to Dhatukshaya (tissue degeneration) because Dhatukshaya is an integral character of Vatadosha and Asthi is always its victim. Keeping this in mind, patients were categorized in 3 groups and accordingly treatment was chosen.
