Treatment for Cervical Spondylosis involves a series of treatment modalities at Maurya Hospital, Muvattupuzha. The treatment protocol involves an integrated therapy, consisting of Ayurveda, Physiotherapy, and Naturopathy treatment aimed at reducing pain, stiffness, and tenderness. 


Ayurveda treatment at Maurya mainly focuses on therapies that promote a reduction in pain, stiffness, numbness, and muscle spasms. We have a team of excellent Ayurveda Physicians who easily handle such cases. The therapies vary from patient to patient, but we can give you a peek into the treatment procedures you can expect at Maurya Ayurveda Hospital.

Rooksha Vasti

  • For Cervical Spondylosis, Ruksha Vasti is employed as part of a comprehensive treatment strategy to calm Vata and lessen pain and stiffness. Specific herbal oils or decoctions with drying and warming properties may be chosen during a Ruksha Vasti treatment for Cervical Spondylosis to balance Vata and reduce symptoms. 
  • The procedure promotes detoxification, eases pain, and improves circulation in addition to improving general health.


  • ناسيا therapy is believed to help balance Vata dosha, promote the cleansing of toxins, and enhance the functioning of the head and neck region, which can positively impact the symptoms of Cervical Spondylosis.
  • Generally, the oils used in nasya for Vata-related disorders have warming and nourishing properties. They may contain herbs that have calming and balancing effects on the nervous system.
  • Nasya therapy involves lying down with the head tilted back, and then a few drops of the medicated oil or preparation are instilled into each nostril. The individual is then encouraged to gently inhale the oil, allowing it to reach the sinuses and respiratory passages. This process can help reduce pain, relieve congestion, improve breathing, and promote a sense of calm and relaxation to counter the effects of Stress and strain on Cervical Spondylosis.

Ruksha Kizhi

  • Ruksha Kizhi involves the application of heated, dry herbal powders or herbal boluses to the body. It is a form of sudation therapy used to treat Cervical Spondylosis by its action on Kapha dosha which envelopes the Vata Dosha to get rid of pain, stiffness, and inflammation.
  • In Ruksha Kizhi, the herbal powders are typically dried and finely ground herbs with properties that provide a drying effect. This helps to deliver the therapeutic properties of the herbs and stimulate circulation, reduce pain, improve flexibility, and promote healing.


  • Elakizhi is the term for the coordinated application of heat by therapists using poultices (Kizhi) made of appropriate leaves which have properties to reduce pain, stiffness, and tenderness. 
  • The patient is instructed to lie down on his back and suitable oil is applied all over the body. Kizhi is then heated over a mild fire as per the patient’s comfort and then massaged all over the body by Therapists.

Kashaya Dhara

  • During a Kashaya Dhara session, a warm herbal decoction is continuously poured over the affected areas of the body, such as the back, neck, or specific tender points. 
  • The decoction is typically prepared with herbs that possess anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and muscle-relaxing properties.


  • Procedure where long, thick strips of cotton wool are soaked in warm medicated oil and placed over affected areas.
  • Pichu provides considerable relief from pain, numbness, and stiffness. Also, the medicated oils used for Pichu contain muscle-strengthening properties, thereby resulting in a considerable reduction of pain, numbness, and stiffness. 

Greeva Vasti

In Greeva Vasti, warm medicated oil is retained in a well made of flour dough over the neck for a certain period of time. This mode of treatment is an excellent solution for the symptoms associated with Cervical Spondylosis. 


Physiotherapy is found very beneficial for patients with Cervical Spondylosis. Physiotherapy is carried out by trained, professional Physiotherapists at Maurya Hospital including the following:

1.Strengthening Exercises

Strengthening exercises can help improve muscle strength and stability, which may help support the joints and alleviate some Cervical Spondylosis symptoms. It’s important to start with low-impact exercises and gradually progress based on your tolerance. Examples of strengthening exercises for Cervical Spondylosis may include gentle weightlifting, resistance band exercises, and bodyweight exercises.

2.Stretching Exercises

Stretching exercises can help improve flexibility, reduce muscle tension, and enhance joint mobility. Gentle stretching routines that focus on all major muscle groups can be beneficial for individuals with Cervical Spondylosis. 

3.Cervical Traction

Cervical traction is a therapeutic technique used to relieve neck pain and treat certain neck conditions. It involves gently stretching the neck by applying a pulling force, which helps alleviate pressure on the spinal discs and nerves in the cervical (neck) region.

4.IFT (Interferential Therapy)

Interferential Therapy is a type of electrotherapy that uses low-frequency electrical currents to provide pain relief and promote circulation. It may help alleviate pain and reduce muscle tension in individuals with Cervical Spondylosis. The therapy involves placing electrodes on the skin near the affected area, and the electrical currents stimulate the nerves and muscles.


Acupuncture is carried out at Maurya by qualified Naturopathy physicians who are well-trained to carry out the procedure. By inserting fine needles at specific points on the body, acupuncture aims to alleviate pain, relax tense neck muscles, and improve blood circulation.
