Cervical Spondylosis

It is more than usual for age-related degenerative changes in the spine's bones and soft tissues. The ligaments and capsules around the joint deteriorate and become fibrotic, resulting in the most prevalent alteration. Facet joints between and behind adjacent vertebrae wear out and can generate bony growths (osteophytes) that induce nerve root constriction (stenosis). The discs may expand, protrude, or fracture.

Symptoms of Cervical Spondylosis:

  • • Neck pain with limited range of movement
  • • Muscle spasms
  • • Stiffness (worse in the morning)
  • • Headaches
  • • Shoulder pain
  • • Arm pain
  • • Weakness or Numbness in the upper limb

Physiotherapy Treatments Commonly Used for Cervical Spondylosis:
  • Ultrasonic Therapy: Sound waves are transmitted through the tissues, increasing the body's chemical reactions and hence the healing process, in the same way that shaking a test tube in the laboratory speeds up a chemical reaction.
  • Interferential Therapy: Introduces tiny electrical impulses into the tissues and can be employed at different frequencies to achieve different therapy results. For example, pain alleviation, muscle or nerve stimulation, increased blood flow, and reduced inflammation.
  • Mobilization: It is a manual treatment in which the therapist gently moves the joint and soft tissues to regain a normal range of motion, lubricate the joint surfaces, and reduce discomfort.
  • Manipulation: It is a fast, short-movement thrust delivered at the end of the possible range. It is utilized to break down adhesions, eliminate a blockage within a joint, and restore normal, painless movement. You might hear or feel a click while getting this treatment.
