Abstract

Cervical Spondylosis is one among the degenerative disc ailments. A recent study showed, 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 combined therapy of Nasya (Nasal therapy), Griva Basti (Neck care), and Patra Pottali Sweda (Specialized massage therapy using boluses of herbs) consecutively to get maximum relief in a minimal period of time. More attentiveness is on the Bahi Parimarjana Chikitsa (External purification therapy) on the affected part that being Griva (neck) and Manya pradesha (cerviacal spine region). At the initial stage because of Kapha Avarana (Kapha obstruction) there will be stiffness and later when it becomes chronic due to improper usage of cervical spine, Vata alone will lead to Dhatukshaya (tissue degeneration) because Dhatukshaya is an integral character of Vatadosha and Asti is always a victim.
