Cervical Spondylosis Cervical spondylosis is a common degenerative condition of the cervical spine that most likely is caused by age-related changes in the intervertebral disks. Clinically, several syndromes, both overlapping and distinct, are seen: neck and shoulder pain, suboccipital pain and headache, radicular symptoms, and cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). As disk degeneration occurs, mechanical stresses result in osteophytic bars, which form along the ventral aspect of the spinal canal.Frequently, associated degenerative changes in the facet joints, hypertrophy of the ligamentum flavum, and ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament occur. All can contribute to impingement on pain-sensitive structures (nerves and spinal cord), thus creating various clinical syndromes. Spondylotic changes often are observed in the aging population. However, only a small percentage of patients with radiographic evidence of cervical spondylosis are symptomatic
Lumbar spondylosis describes bony overgrowths (osteophytes), predominantly those at the anterior, lateral, and, less commonly, posterior aspects of the superior and inferior margins of vertebral centra (bodies). This dynamic process increases with, and is perhaps an inevitable concomitant of age.
Lumbar spondylosis usually produces no symptoms. When back or sciatic pains are complaints, lumbar spondylosis usually is an unrelated finding.
Spondylolysis Spondylolysis stress fracture in one of the bones (vertebrae) that make up the spinal column is called spondylolysis (spon-dee-low-lye-sis). It usually affects the fifth lumbar vertebra in the lower back, and much less commonly, the fourth lumbar vertebra.If the stress fracture weakens the bone so much that it is unable to maintain its proper position, the vertebra can start to shift out of place. This condition is called spondylolisthesis
Inter Vertebral Disc Prolapse commonly caused due to over strain, weakness of spinal muscles, due to technically incorrect exertion and exercises and some pathological conditions.
The words ‘rheumatism’ and ‘the rheumatic diseases’ are still sometimes used in order to describe a whole range of different conditions which affect the muscles, tendons, joint tissues and other non-joint tissues of the body. The one thing that all these disorders have in common is that they cause pain! Polymyalgia Rheumatica – in this disorder there is pain and stiffness in a lot of different muscles, especially those around the shoulders. It affects mainly the elderly.
Tenosynovitis – This is an inflammation of the sheathes of the tendons – they are the cord-like structures in the wrist and elsewhere, which many older people call ‘leaders’. Injections and manipulation may help.
Capsulitis – this is an inflammation of the capsule (the covering) of the joint, often the shoulder. Bursitis – This is an inflammation caused by friction between soft tissues and underlying bone.
Allergic Disorders The respiratory allergy is the form which is found more and which might lead to Allergic Asthma. In such cases low immunity leads to recurrent respiratory infections and to fatal condition
There is no blood test for psoriasis. The diagnosis is made by observation and examination of the skin. Sometimes microscopic examination of the skin (biopsy) is helpful where the changes are not typical or characteristic. The exact cause of psoriasis is unknown, but hereditary and genetic factors are important. Psoriasis runs in families. This does not mean, however, that every child of a parent with psoriasis will develop psoriasis, but it is common that somewhere down the line psoriasis will appear in families. Psoriasis is not caused by allergies, infections, dietary deficiencies or excesses, or nervous tension.

It is clinically proved in our experience, that patients underwent Ayurvedic treatment for osteoporosis have increased their bone mineral density considerably. Patients at the age of 40-60 years and with a moderate degree of osteoporosis got upto 90% result. Patients aged above 60-70 with moderate osteoporosis got upto 70% result. According to Ayurveda osteoporosis can be compared with srothodushti of Asthidhatu caused by vatakshaya. Srothodushti is nothing but improper transmission of nutrients between the tissues i.e., bone tissues. In Ayurveda it can be managed effectively.
