Ayurveda Tips and Therapies to treat Cervical Spondylosis - By Dr. Geeta Patil
Cervical Spondylosis is a degenerative condition of the neck affecting the flexibility of the neck joint movement and causing pain. In Ayurveda we have 5 Treatments for this –
Treatment No 1 - Abhyanga & Swedana
Warm specific medicated oils are gently massaged in a specific way to relieve pain. Followed by herbal steam to reduce stiffness, inflammation and to improve neck movements.
Treatment No 2 - Greeva Basti
Greeva Basti is a hot oil therapy that is used in the treatment of neck pain and related ailments of the neck. Greeva refers to the neck, and Basti means ‘to hold or contain’ something inside. It is a procedure that involves oleation and sudation over the posterior neck region. It addresses problems related to the spine, muscles and skeletal tissues of the neck and shoulders.
Treatment No 3 - Kizhi
Specific Herbs and medicated powders are tied in cotton cloth to form a pottali. This is dipped in warm medicated oils or decoctions and massaged on the affected area.pecific Herbs and medicated powders are tied in cotton cloth to form a pottali.
