Yogic Management of Cervical Spondylosis

Cervical spondylosis is a common degenerative condition of he cervical spine. It is a condition involving changes to the bones, discs, and joints of the neck. It is most likely caused by age-related changes in the inter-vertebral disks. These changes are caused by the normal wear-and-tear of aging. With age, the discs of the cervical spine gradually lose fluid, and become stiffer. Clinically, several overlapping and distinct syndromes are seen. These include neck and shoulder pain, sub-occipital pain and headache.
