Ayurvedic & Home Remedies for Neck & Shoulder Pain

Degenerative arthritis of the spine in the neck (cervical spine) can pinch nerves that can cause both neck pain and shoulder pain.

Degenerative disc disease in the neck (cervical spondylosis) can cause local neck pain or radiating pain from disc herniation, causing pinching of nerves or cervical radiculopathy.

Poor posture,trauma,muscle strain can all contribute to neck pain. Postural hypotension is indicated by symptoms of lightheadedness or blackouts, and is typically experienced when rising from a lying or sitting position. Neck pain can also result in vertigo.

An X­Ray or CT scan would help to reveal the exact cause or the condition of the spine.

If there is pain and stiffness and decreased motion of the shoulder I would recommend the following medicines:

  • Prasarinyadi kashayam, 2 tablets,twice daily, 1 hour before food.
  • Cervirite/Cervilon 1 softgel twice daily after food.
  • Joint aid oil for local application(massage)

Along with these Ayurveda medicines some foods should be strictly avoided. The general dietary precautions for most Ayurvedic treatments should be followed:
