Ayurveda for Neck Pain

As with all Ayurveda treatments, treatment for Neck Pain is cause-based. Muscular spasm caused by strain, postural deficiencies and stress respond quickly to Ayurvedic therapies. Ayurveda also helps reverse the strain to the muscles, preventing further degeneration of the cartilage, bones and nerves involved. The prescribed therapies include Abhyangam, Podikkizhi, Elakkizhi, Nasyam, Pizhichil, and Navarakkizhi.
