Cervical Spondilytis

Ayurveda can treat spondylitis in safe and simpler way.
At Pranav Ayurveda Chikitsalaya there are three principles for the Spondylitis treatment
1. Reduction of the inflammation in tissues – Panchakarma treatments
2. Increasing blood circulation in that area – External application like massages
3. Correction of the calcium metabolism – Internal medication

Severe and chronic cases of Spondylitis require Panchakarma treatments, but in acute and fresh cases only medicines too work well.
