According to Ayurveda mostly pains are caused by the aggravation of vata (air) dosha. Arthritis is a condition which is caused by accumulation of ama and aggravation of vata. (Ama is a toxic by-product of improper digestion. )This ama circulates in the whole body and deposits or gets collected at the sites which are weaker. That is why you experience arthritis in fingers or knees. When it deposits in the joints and at the same time there is aggravation of vata , it results in a disease called amavata. This amavata is arthritis.
Cervical spondylosis is also called cervical Osteoarthritis. The bones in the neck begin to degenerate. Disc degeneration and bone spurs lead to cervical spondylosis. The disc space becomes narrow and gradually compresses the nerve. In advanced cases of cervical spondylosis, spinal cord is affected and may also lead to paralysis of the arm. Symptoms are most severe in the morning and again at the end of the day.
