Abstract

Manyasthamba (Cervical Spondylosis) is one among the Eighty Nanathmaja Vata Vyadhi’s. Due to the Nidanas (Etiology) like sleeping during day time, sitting and standing on irregular postures, constantly gazing upwards.Avarana is one of the pathological processes of Vata vitiation. Avarana is the disturbed movement of Vata due to obstruction by other factors in the body. Vata being aggravated, gets Avrutha by Kapha. Kaphavrutha Vata takes Ashraya (seat)in the Sira (arteries) and Snayu (Nerves) of Manya Pradesha  (Nape of the neck) and produces Lakshanas ( Symptoms)  like Sheetata ,Shopha (Swelling), Gaurava (Heaviness), Ruk (Pain) and Chesthastambha ( Lack of expression) we can correlate cervical spondylosis with Manyastambha which has dominancy of Vata-Kaphaja Dosha.

 

 Cervical spondylosis is a degenerative disease of cervical spine. It is age related degenerative disease but the incidence is increasing day by day due to strenuous activities, faulty postures and long hours desk work cervical spine go through various wear and tear processes because of which the gap between the two vertebrae reduces and the nerve passing through them get compressed and eliciting various symptoms like paraesthesia, radiating pain, numbness in hand, headache, dizziness. Modern medicine has no promising remedy for this disease yet. The general treatment protocol for Avarana is pacification of Vata along with cleansing of channels and treatment of encroaching Dosha. Nasya is considered as the best procedures for disease of head and neck.  Ayurvedic classics has mentioned Nasya (earrhines) as the treatment for Urdhva Jatru Gata Vikara (supraclavicular region). Nasya(earrhines) karma has potent effect on Shroto Shodhan (Cleansing of micro channels) and to retard the Dhatukshaya (Depletion of Dhatus).
