Advanced Cervical Spondylosis treatment in Hyderabad

What is cervical spondylosis

Cervical spondylosis is a condition that affects the spine in the neck (cervical) region. It is a type of degenerative joint disease that occurs when the cartilage and bones in the neck wear down over time. This can cause the bones to rub against each other, leading to pain, stiffness, and other symptoms.

Causes of cervical spondylosis

Our spine undergoes degenerative changes that may cause cervical spondylosis.

These changes may include

Risk factors of Cervical spondylosis

Symptoms of cervical spondylosis

Treatment for cervical spondylosis may include medications, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery.


→ During the physical examination, the functioning and range of movement of the neck, shoulders, arms, and legs are assessed, as well as reflexes and muscle strength.

→ The diagnosis of cervical spondylosis can be confirmed with imaging tests, such as X-rays, MRI scans, CT scans, and myelograms.

→ MRI scans are the gold standard for diagnosing cervical spondylosis- they can show a bulging disc, degenerated facet joints, spinal cords, spinal canals, muscles around, and soft tissue growths.

There may be other tests needed, such as a nerve conduction study.


A slipped disk, also known as a herniated disk or a bulging disk, is a condition that occurs when the soft, gel-like centre of a spinal disk protrudes through a tear in the outer layer of the disk. This can cause pain, numbness, and weakness in the affected area of the body.

There are several potential causes of a slipped disk, including

Over-the-counter painkillers known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are helpful in reducing acute inflammation, but long-term use may result in kidney and liver problems, Gastritis, and other complications. For a short period of time, they must be used under the supervision of the treating physician.
When neck muscles go into spasm and stiffness, they restrict neck movements. Muscle relaxants relieve these spasms temporarily.
Steroids play a role in severe cases of pain due to their anti-inflammatory effects. Steroids can sometimes be helpful in this condition, but should be taken only when prescribed by a physician.
Pregabalin and Gabapin play an important role in decreasing pain signals carried by the nerve around the cervical spine. In these medicines, side effects are seen early in their course. Drowsiness and dizziness are the initial side effects, which subside in time. These medicines are highly effective in such situations.
A small dose of nortriptyline or amitriptyline can also relieve such pain.

Physical therapy

→ It is recommended to do some neck and upper backstretches to strengthen the neck muscles. These exercises should be avoided in cases of acute pain because they may exacerbate the problem.

→ Heat, ice, and massage therapy can relieve neck pain, stiffness, and inflammation for a short period of time, but they are not permanent solutions.
