Medicines

It can be applied with analgesics, sedatives and vitamins (such as B1 and B12), which have certain effects on the relief of symptoms. Try to use glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate for supportive care. Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are clinically used to treat osteoarthritis in various parts of the body. These chondroprotective agents have a certain degree of anti-inflammatory and anti-cartilage decomposition effects. Basic research shows that glucosamine can inhibit the production of inflammatory factors in spinal nucleus pulposus cells and promote the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans in the intervertebral disc cartilage matrix. Clinical studies have found that the injection of glucosamine into the intervertebral disc can significantly reduce low back pain caused by degenerative disc disease and improve spinal function. Case reports suggest that oral glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate can reverse the degenerative changes of the intervertebral disc to some extent.

Exercises

When the symptoms of various types of cervical spondylosis are basically relieved or in a chronic state, medical gymnastics can be started to promote the further elimination of symptoms and to consolidate the curative effect. Symptoms should be partially rested during the acute attack, and it is not appropriate to increase exercise stimulation. Forbidden exercise when there is obvious or progressive spinal cord compression, especially the cervical reclining movement should be contraindicated. When it's the vertebral artery type cervical spondylosis, the neck rotation should be gentle and slow, and the amplitude should be properly controlled.

Traction therapy

"Traction" has been one of the first choices for the treatment of cervical spondylosis in the past, but in recent years, it has been found that many patients with cervical spondylosis have not been relieved after using "traction", especially in patients who have been using "traction" for a long time. Instead, it is aggravated.

Traction not only can not promote the recovery of cervical curvature, but straightens the cervical vertebra and weakens the cervical curvature. Therefore, cervical spondylosis should not be treated with traction.

Massage

It is a more effective treatment for cervical spondylosis. Its therapeutic effect can relieve tension and spasm of the neck and shoulder muscles, restore cervical vertebra activity, release nerve roots and soft tissue adhesions to relieve symptoms. Spinal cervical spondylosis generally prohibits gravity massage and reduction, otherwise it may easily aggravate symptoms, or even causes paraplegia.
