Dr. Tushita Thakur* and L. Janani

ABSTRACT

Cervical spondylosis is natural ageing process involving cervical spine characterised by degeneration of the intervertebral discs, the protrusion and bony overgrowth of adjacent vertebral bodies causing narrowing of the vertebral canal and intervertebral foramina. It causes compression of the nerve roots and sometimes of the spinal cord. The condition is extremely common in middle-aged and older patients. It may present with non-specific neck pain or with symptoms of cervical radiculopathy/ myelopathy; and considerably affects the quality of life of the patient. There is limited evidence to support the use of conventional treatment for this condition. Homoeopathy is holistic system of medicine that treats „individual? cases based on physical make-up of the patient as well as the intellectual and mental characteristics. Siddha is an ancient Indian System of medicine developed by Tamil saints known as Siddhars in which Varmam therapy is a unique therapeutic method used to treat multiple ailments, specially related to musculoskeletal and neurological problems.
