Spondylosis Treatment through Ayurveda: Causes and Symptoms

Spondylosis, also referred to as spinal osteoarthritis, is a painful condition that develops as a result of the spine’s age and wears and tear. The most apparent reason is our obsession with different devices which affects our spine and joints adversely. People who spend more time sitting are more likely to develop spine problems. We must extra take and effort to keep our spine active. At times, it is important to get proper spondylosis treatment through Ayurveda to relieve the symptoms. Among the different treatment options, Ayurveda is the best cure. Spondylosis can be managed with Ayurveda by restoring the optimum levels of the aggravated Doshas. “Ayurveda focuses more on preventing any diseases from occurring. For any prevailing diseases, the root causes are found and treated so as to eliminate the illness as well as avoid it from recurring”, says our Medical Director Dr Jobin J Madukkakuzhy.

What Causes Cervical Spondylosis?

  • Degeneration
  • Herniation
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bone spurs

Spondylosis can affect the cervical (neck), thoracic (upper and mid-back), or lumbar (lower back) spines (low back). The most common spondylosis is lumbar and cervical spondylosis. With age, the bones and ligaments in the spine wear, abnormal overgrowth of bones may develop, discs may dry and crack, cartilage may wear out, and ligaments may thicken. Spondylosis encompasses all of these age-related degenerative processes. Spondylosis isn’t always accompanied by symptoms. When symptoms do appear, they usually involve stiffness or soreness in the neck or back. Spondylosis in the cervical spine (neck) can cause headaches. 

Let’s check out the different symptoms of Spondylosis.

Symptoms of Spondylosis

  • Pain in the neck that may travel to your arms or shoulders

  • A popping sound when you move your neck.

Spondylosis Cervical Treatment in Ayurveda 

For many years, Ayurvedic medicine has been quite effective in the treatment of spondylosis.

After a thorough assessment of the client’s body and psyche, Ayurveda understands the condition in-depth, including etiological factors, imbalanced Dosha (Biological humour), and digestive fire. This is followed by therapies such as Marma Massages (specialised massage with energy point stimulation), Kashayadhara (decoction bath), Pizhichil (Oil bath), and various Kizhys (Bundle bag massage- Podikizhi, Elakkizhy, Njavarakkizhy), Vasthi (Medicated enema), all of which help to reduce stiffness and inflammation in muscle and joints, as well as ease movement and reduce pain symptoms. 

  • Kati Basti – It is the most effective treatment for lower back pain. Herbal oils used in this basti comprise healing properties that allow cleansing and strengthening of the circulatory system, lubricating the joints, and developing strong muscle and connective tissue.
  • MerudandVasti – Merudanda Vastiis effective for treating slipped discs, prolapsed discs, muscle soreness, spasms, traumas, spinal degeneration, spondylosis, arthritis, paralysis, and mental disorders. This treatment can be used to treat any condition connected with the low or mid-back.
