Let us discuss some of the common causes of Cervical Spondylitis
Symptoms of Cervical Spondylitis
It is important to note that cervical spondylitis is a slowly developing condition, except in the case of an injury. It can remain dormant for 1-2 years before actually showing any symptoms. Discomfort in the neck region and pain can often be experienced. The common symptoms experienced by sufferers are:
Diagnosis of Cervical Spondylitis
Doctors prescribe MRI, C.T. Scan, and X-Ray to find out cervical spondylitis. However, these procedures are more helpful as muscular stiffness cannot be detected.
Treatment of Cervical Spondylitis
Most people suffering from Cervical Spondylitis are seen lining up at a physiotherapist. The condition can lessen or aggravate depending on your lifestyle, posture, and the kind of treatment you get. Alternative treatments usually work the best in this case. This is because of the primary problem of muscular stiffness, that can be tackled directly.
You can visit an Ayurvedic physician for Karpooradi, Mustard, Mahanarayan and Sesame oil massages. These massage procedures when done properly and followed by steam, give effective relief. At home, you must steam the affected area with a hot towel twice a day. You must also do self-massages with oil. An Ayurveda center offers Griva Basti and Potli massage services as well. They are also effective for pain relief and muscular stiffness.
You must ensure that you do not use collars. If you do, focus on softer collars. Additionally, take adequate rest. Remember, you should not avoid any kind of stiffness or pain in this region and visit a doctor as soon as the first symptoms show.
