Cervical Spondylosis is an age-related degeneration ('wear and tear') of the bones (vertebrae) and discs of the neck. To an extent, we all develop some degeneration in the vertebrae and discs as we become older. It tends to start sometime after the age of about 50.
One feature of the degeneration is that the edges of the vertebrae often develop bony projections that form along joints called osteophytes or bone spurs. Also, over many years, the discs become thinner. Bone spurs themselves are not problematic, but they are a signal of an underlying problem that often needs to be addressed. Patients suffering from cervical spondylosis may show symptoms of:-
- Pain- The pain may be mild or so severe that the person is unable to move. Pain can be felt in the neck and/or shoulder blade or it may spread to the arm, elbow, thumb and fingers.
- Neck stiffness- The muscles covering the neck, shoulder, side of neck will be rigid and painful.
- Limitation of movement- The neck movements are limited. Extending the neck up is difficult and restricted due to pain and stiffness, but flexing the neck down is possible.
- Muscle weakness- In some cases the muscles responsible for maintaining the neck in erect position can become weak.
- Sensory loss- The bones of the neck apply pressure over the nerves passing through them and can cause loss of sensation in the arms or fingers.
- Headache, fatigue and anxiety can also be present.
- Loss of balance and loss of bladder & bowel control- In extremely severe cases, if the spinal cord is affected, there will be loss of balance and also loss of bladder & bowel control.
Lumbar Spondylosis can include a variety of symptoms, the most common of which are pain, tingling, numbness and weakness that begin in your lower back and radiate through your buttocks, hips, legs, feet and toes. Lumbar spondylosis is a general term that describes degeneration of the spine, but it does not describe the specific source of symptoms. Many doctors refer to arthritis of the spine as spondylosis, but spondylosis could also apply to degeneration of the intervertebral discs or degeneration of the vertebrae themselves.
Through the combination of Classical Homoeopathy, Ayurvedic-Unani formulations and Internationally Acclaimed Advanced Physiotherapy, pain due to Spondylosis (cervical/lumbar) is reduced considerably and rejuvenation of the affected area begins.
