You must have heard of the term Hi-Tech, but have you heard of ‘Tech Neck’?

Maybe not. 

We are a generation that depends on technology for almost everything. From buying grocery, to ordering food and even booking appointments with doctors, we are technologically advanced, and to a great extent, technologically crippled too.

That’s where ‘Tech Neck’ comes in. While we are staring at our screens (be it laptops or our smartphones), we tend to squint our eyes and lean in due to which we put pressure on our necks, causing them to ache, eventually leading to something as serious as cervical spondylitis.  Although there are many reasons for the onset of cervical spondylitis such as stress, accident, age, arthritis, etc, Tech Neck is considered to be one of the biggest culprits, It has gained ground over the last decade or so, and if you own a smartphone or a tablet, this is sure to affect you too.

So what is cervical spondylitis, and how serious is it?

Cervical spondylosis (cervical osteoarthritis), is a condition that involves degeneration of the bones of the and the joints of the neck. Although it sounds like just a regular long-term neck pain, it has extreme complications that can have an impact on the quality of life.

Most people opt for surgical procedures to get relief from the never-ending pain. But not everyone realises that surgery is required in cases that are complicated, which usually is very rare. Surgery is done to remove the source that puts pressure on the nerves and spinal cord, and when there is severe loss of function. This can be done through non invasive and natural treatments like homeopathy, with much more effective results.

How and why does cervical spondylitis occur?

The spinal canal narrows down causing the muscles that attach the neck and the cervical spine, to compress. This compression puts pressure on the neck causing mild pain which ends in severe dysfunction of the neck and spine.

The main causes of these problems are:

1. Disc Degeneration due to ageing

2. Disc Bulge due to incorrect posture

3. Herniated intervertebral disks – Pressure on the spinal nerve

4. Fibromyalgia

 

In spite of references to different entities, all the three reasons are interrelated, and often superimpose the others. Below is an image indicating common lifestyle causes and, chronic symptoms of cervical spondylitis.

If left untreated, it could lead to:

Complications of cervical spondylosis:

Chronic neck pain

Loss of muscle function or sensation

Increased pressure on the spinal cord

Spinal cord compression can result in permanent functional disability

Treating cervical spondylitis with homeopathy

Homeopathy has effective remedial techniques for treating cervical spondylitis. The treatment depends on the amount of degeneration of the bones and the spinal disk. In short, the extent of damage your spine has will determine the speed of recovery. In cases with mild bone deterioration, the treatments work faster than in advanced cases in which multiple disk prolapses occur.

In cases of delayed treatment, homeopathy can relieve congestion and compression of the spine and nerves. The treatment can also arrest the progressing degeneration of the bones. Homeopathic treatments offer customised remedies for you. Homeopathic approach provides significant relief for pain and stiffness in the neck by activating the muscles and nerves that have lost functionality. The medicines naturally slow down the progress of the condition and gradually improves the range of neck mobility.

Although the problem can be controlled, if the condition is due to ageing, any treatment, especially surgical corrections will only lead to temporary relief. Primarily, homeopathy is a symptom based system of medicine. In homeopathy, individualised symptoms determine the combinations of the medication.

Along with the treatments, you must also know the importance of preventing the disease. As discussed above, the technological advancement in the last ten years has become a huge concern for physical health. The number of people with tech necks has shot up, and homeopathy has been a trusted treatment for cervical spondylitis over these years. However, lifestyle modifications are the first step to prevent further degeneration of your bones and an early onset of cervical spondylosis.

With homeopathic remedies, you can live better without any complaints or pain. However, exercise your neck regularly, keep yourself active, and continue with normal activities.
