Spondylosis refers to some type of degeneration in the spine. Spondylosis in neck is called Cervical Spondylosis. Cervical Spondylosis is very common and worsens with age (if not treated on time ). It can cause chronic, severe pain and stiffness. * Factors that increase the risk of cervical spondylosis are: 1> Work related activities that put extra strain on neck. 2> Heavy lifting. 3> Family history of the same. 4> Smoking. 5> Being overweight and inactive. 6> Neck injury. *Treatment Options: 1> Physiotherapy - Physiotherapy helps you stretch your neck and shoulder muscles which makes them stronger and ultimately helps to relieve pain. You might also be given neck traction to relieve the pressure on the cervical discs and nerve roots. * Home Treatment: 1> Use a heating pad or a cold pack on your neck to provide pain relief for sore muscles. 2> Exercise regularly to help you recover fast (consult your physiotherapist for exercise therapy) You can consult me in Bangalore for further information.
