" I have pain on my right arm. It starts from

I have numbness! ".

always complain with much agony.
Physician will examine and direct you to undergo a
plain X-ray, CT scan or MRI of cervical spines. You
may have degenerative changes in the cervical spines,
mostly on the C4, C5 levels. The physician diagnoses
your complaints as " Cervical Spondylosis.".
does it cause?
pain is very common. The pain which arises
spontaneously in any part of the spine, the
precise cause or origin of the pain is often
associated with degenerative change affecting
the joints between the vertebrae and also
the discs are most often believed to be the
The intervertebral discs contribute to length
of the cervical column and this is an important
factor contributing to the relative freedom
of movement of the neck. They are very soft
and jelly-like which form the weight-bearing
link of each vertebral 'mobile segment'. When
particular degeneration occurs relatively
uniformly throughout the length of the cervical
spine, the intervertebral disc is most susceptible
to herniate, prolapse and degenerate.
pain resembles cervical spondylosis, which
can result from arthritis, but other soft-tissue
problems are actually rather more common.
The most frequent problem is rotator cuff
tendonitis, which may often result from trauma
to the tendons. There may be repeated minor
trauma resulting from a repetitive activity.
The pain is usually experienced in the shoulder
or in the upper outer arm. Pain may restrict
movements of the arm to some extent, but not
usually as much as in the case of the other
fairly common shoulder problem, 'frozen shoulder'
or adhesive capsulitis. The shoulder becomes
extremely stiff and painful, usually gets
worse at night.
and neck pain is a common condition. Striking
a golf ball, cleaning windows or reaching
for a jar can strain and injure shoulder muscles
and tendons, especially in people who are
out of condition. Poor posture or unnatural
sleeping positions. Sleeping on a soft mattress
can give you a stiff neck the next morning.
Arthritis may affect the shoulder though the
shoulder may be involved in RA for instance.
For elderly people, osteoarthritis may occur
and degenerative change may also result if
the rotator cuff tendons become damaged.
treatment is advisable?
is very amenable to homoeopathic treatment. Homoeopathy
Medicines have an affinity to act on the bones, synovial
fluid and ligaments. I have treated many cases of
cervical spondylosis with great success. We do not
prescribe a pain killer or a palliative, a simple
constitutional prescription will bring that fantastic
result. Do not skip the medicines as they do not give
instant relief, wait for some time say about three
to four months to achieve the goal. There is no recurrence
even after four years of treatment. You might know
that Homoeopathy medicines are administered in dynamic
form with diluted doses which never produce side-effects.
