A corset or a brace could be used to provide support; cervical collars may be used to alleviate pain by restricting movement.

You shall use cervical collar which would help you to reduce the radiating pain ie. Due to the nerve compression. Use collar will definitely be helpful for him to maintain the good posture. And also cervical pillow can be used which might make you to have better posture of the shoulder neck and arm.

Homoeopathic Treatment Of Cervical Spondylosis (Cervical Osteoarthritis)!

What is cervical spondylosis (cervical osteoarthritis)?

Cervical spondylosis is also known as osteoarthritis of cervical spine (neck). This is age related wear and tear of the discs, bones and joints of the neck. As the discs dehydrate and shrink with age, bony spicules start to appear along the edges of bones. Also the discs of cervical spine gradually break down and start losing fluid causing stiffness. Thus signs of osteoarthritis start to appear.

Risk factors:

  • Age: cervical spondylosis is a normal part of aging. More than 85% of people older than age 60 years are affected by cervical spondylosis.
  • Smoking: is related to increased risk of development of neck pain.
  • Genes: family history increases risk of development of neck pain.
  • Occupation: cervical spondylosis is seen more in people who have computer jobs or jobs which require repetitive movement of neck.
  • Neck injury: injuries to the neck in past predisposes to spondylosis also.

Complications:

Due to compression of nerve or spinal cord in cervical spondylosis, there could be permanent damage as well.

Symptoms and causes
Symptoms:

Usually, people experience no symptoms but when symptoms appear then they are pain and stiffness of neck. Further symptoms doesn’t appear unless there is nerve compression or there is narrowing of the space for spinal cord. If the nerve roots or spinal cord is compressed then there would be following symptoms:

  • Tingling along with numbness in arms, hands, legs or feet.
  • Weakness is also felt in arms, legs or feet due nerve compression.
  • Walking can also be impaired.
  • Lack of coordination.
  • Loss of bowel control or bladder control.

Causes:
Due to aging, there is wear and tear of the cartilage and bones of the spine of neck. Due to this wear and tear there is dehydration of the disc which acts like cushion between vertebrae of the spine. Due to drying up go th cushiony disc there is bone to bone contact causing pain and stiffness.

Diagnosis & treatment
Diagnosis:

  • Physical examination for checking the range of movement of neck, gait, reflexes and muscle strength.
  • Neck x-ray: x-ray of neck would reveal bone growth (spurs).
  • Ct scan: would give detailed image of the neck.

Treatment:

  • Conventional treatment includes pain relieving with nsaids, corticosteroids, muscle relaxants so that patient can be relieved with pain and stiffness.
  • Surgery can also be performed for removing the herniated disc or bone growth (spur).
  • Therapy can also be given which includes exercises to help stretch and strengthen the muscles of neck and shoulders. Traction can also be given to patients to help relieving symptoms of nerve compression.

Management

  • Regular exercise: by doing regular exercise there would be rapid recovery in the symptoms of stiffness and pain.
  • Improving the posture: people who have computer job should improve their posture while sitting at work and should take break after small intervals.
  • Heat or ice packs: would help in relieving pain and stiffness
  • Neck support: would help in giving rest to the neck muscles.

Homeopathic management
Since conventional medicines doesn’t provide full relief in symptoms and have side effects of their own, homeopathy is an alternative method of helping people having cervical spondylosis. Homeopathy would not only help in relieving the symptoms but would also help in catching the disease at the current situation.
Various medicines are available for cervical spondylosis like silicea, natrum mur, bryonia, pulsatilla etc which can be given for the condition but should be taken only when prescribed by a homeopath.

Do’s & don’ts

  • Apply heat or cold pack.
  • Swimming would also help as it stretches the ligaments.
  • Do stretching regularly.
  • Do neck specific exercises.
  • Wear soft neck support.
  • Rectify your posture.

Don’ts

  • Don’t wait of exaggeration of symptoms.
  • Don’t strain on neck.
  • Don’t sit for long hours in front of computer.

Cervical Spondylosis - How To Handle It?

Cervical Spondylosis - How To Handle It?

The difficulties associated with cervical spondylosis go far beyond spelling it correctly! The problem of cervical spondylosis can be extremely painful making it difficult to sit or walk. As if cervical spondylosis alone was not enough to put up with, it can often be accompanied by headache. Bone spurs can be said to be a rather unusual phenomena but they can be one of the causes of cervical spondylosis is quite a few cases. This occurs when an extra bone grows to make the body stronger.

What causes cervical spondylosis?
While the causes of cervical spondylosis may vary, few causes are just as direct as injury is. A fall, or an accident can hasten the process of ageing and bring on cervical spondylosis sooner than what would have been usual. Sometimes, the nature of work can also lead to cervical spondylosis, as is the case with a lot of construction workers who suffer from it. Generally, as a person gets older, he or she can expect to suffer from cervical spondylosis. As a matter of fact, it affects about eighty five per cent of people over the age of sixty! One good thing though is the fact that only in certain, chronic cases is the condition life-altering, as most people are able to get on with their normal lives after taking some measures.

How to treat it?
In order to ease the pain, it is a good option to make use of some muscle relaxants, which can go a long way. Also, in case the pain is really bad, there are steroid injections which are available which reduce the tissue inflammation. For this same purpose, a person suffering can also make use of a narcotic such as hydrocodone. One solution which usually is not required in the case of cervical spondylosis is surgery. The surgeries for the issue are usually to correct the form of the bone structure, basically to remove spurs and create more room. However, doctors usually recommend this sort of solution when the pain is excruciating and persistent in nature.

Usually, muscles of those who suffer due to cervical spondylosis can get very sore. A simple but also a surprisingly effective remedy for this is to use a heating pack or a cold gel pack on one’s neck. Shot in the arm solution and a neck brace can an effective temporary solution. However, wearing a neck brace for too long can lead to weaker muscles, which will worsen the problem.

Cervical spondylosis is essentially a pain in the neck, but it is a manageable one!
