I am 60 years. I suffer from neck pain which is called spondylitis or spondylosis - I don't know which. Can you tell me the difference? can you tell me the best form of treatment. I travel a lot as my job demands it.

It could be due to cervical spondylosys or spondilitis. Both of them mean the same. Confirm by x-rays of cervical spine ap & lat. Views no pillow under the head during sleep. Do neck & shoulder exercises. Any way take caldikind plus (mankind)1tab odx10days paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days contact me again need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. B since you have to travel a lot, you must keep a cervical collar with you all the times.
