Causes of Cervical Spondylosis

According to Ayurveda, aggravation of Vata is the main cause of degeneration of tissues and the joints of the neck. Various factors can lead to the degenerative condition including cool and gas-forming foods, astringent foods, long meal gaps, smoking and low consumption of food. The risk of developing cervical spondylosis increases with age. Several physical conditions like prolonged sitting can put excess strain and pressure on the neck joint increasing the risk of bone erosion and low bone density. If left untreated, the situation can worsen causing more complicated conditions like a herniated disk.
