Chronic neck pain is usually caused by the degeneration of the bones and cartilage that cushions between the bones of the neck. This condition is more common in middle-aged or elderly people and generally manifests from the wear and tear of the neck joints. The symptoms include neck pain, stiffness, headaches, numbness, and reduced movement. neck pain is a disorder where an Ayurvedic protocol has shown promising results in helping to relieve symptoms.
In Ayurveda, there is a condition called Greeva Graham, which is similar to degeneration of the neck joints. The primary symptom of Greeva Graham is a stiff neck and the word greeva means neck and graham means stiffness.
This condition is a primary vata disorder associated with dry and degenerated bone tissue. The dryness and degeneration caused by vata dosa also leads to decreased kapha dosa. This becomes a problem because the lubrication that kapha provides is responsible for cushioning the discs between the joints.
