Baksons Spondy Aid drops for symptoms of cervical spondylosis, stiffness of Joints & muscles of spine
Background: ‘Spondylosis’ refer to degeneration in the spine and symptoms of cervical spondylosis is manifest as pain in shoulder blades stretching upto forearms. Most often, the term Spondylosis is used to describe osteoarthritis of the spine. This includes the discs or cushions between the vertebrae and the joints between the bones of the cervical spine. There may be abnormal growths or “spurs” on the bones of the spine (vertebrae). These changes can, over time, press down on (compress) one or more of the nerve roots. In advanced cases, the spinal cord becomes involved.
The following terms are used to describe degeneration in the following parts :
- Neck – is termed Cervical Spondylosis.
- Lower back – is termed Lumbar Spondylosis.
- Middle back– is termed Thoracic Spondylosis
Aging is by far the major risk factor in this disease. By the age of 60, most men and women show growing symptoms of cervical spondylosis on X-ray. While other factors that can make a person susceptible to develop Spondylosis are:
- Past neck/ back injury
- Past spine surgery
- Ruptured or slipped disc
- Being overweight and not exercising
- Heavy lifting / bending and twisting
- Severe Arthritis
- Small fractures to the spine from Osteoporosis
- Heredity/Genetic Factor
In symptoms of cervical spondylosis pain is normally felt over the shoulder blade and it may spread to the upper arm and forearm while (rarely) fingers. It is often noticed to deteriorate after standing or cough or laugh/bending neck backwards, sitting/at night/with sneeze, or walking more than a few yards. There may be other symptoms like abnormal sensations in the shoulders or arms, neck stiffness numbness headaches especially in the head & loss of balance or vertigo.
‘Lumbar Spondylosis’ usually resents itself devoid of any symptoms. Lumbar Spondylosis is usually an unrelated finding when back or sciatic pains are symptoms. Symptoms include weakness and pain that can spread through the lower back, tingling, numbness, tailbone, hip joints, buttocks, thighs, down the legs to toes and loss of bowel bladder control.
In ‘Frozen Shoulder’ the shoulder capsule thickens and becomes tight. Stiff bands of tissue-called adhesions begin to develop and in many cases, there is less synovial fluid in the joint. The usual sign of this condition is being unable to move one’s shoulder-either with one’s own effort or with the help of someone else, accompanied with pain initially which later spontaneously resolves.
