A REVIEW ON CONCEPT OF GRIVASANDHIGATAVATA AND ITS MANAGEMENT WSR CERVICAL SPOMDYLOSIS
Cervical spondylosis is caused by degenerative disc disease and usually produces intermittent neck pain in middle aged and elderly aged patients. This pain usually responds to activity modification, neck immobilization, isometric exercise, and medication. Cervical spondylosis is a common degenerative condition of the cervical spine that most likely is caused by age-related changes in the intervertebral discs. Clinically, several syndromes, both overlapping and distinct are seen: Neck and shoulder pain, suboccipital pain and headache, radicular symptoms, and cervical spondylosis may coexist. As disc degeneration occurs, mechanical stresses result in osteophytic bars which form along the ventral aspect of the spinal canal. Any disease related to locomotor system of the body can be considered in the umbrella of ‘Vata Vyadhi’. SandhigataVata is mentioned under Vata Vyadhi. Acharya Charaka has mentioned that Nidana Sevana aggravates Vata Dosha and this Vata gets vitiated in Griva Asthi and Sandhi it leads to Griva-SandhiGataVata. Key Words: Griva-SandhigataVata, Cervical Spondylosis, management, Nidana.
