The spinal cord consists of about 31 vertebrae which are held in place by a number of ligaments, articulating joint facets, muscles and intervertebral discs. Together they ensure efficient movements of the spine like twisting, turning and bending while at the same time imparting strength and stability to the spine.

Spondylitis refers to degenerative changes of the spinal cord which cause symptoms by compression on exiting nerve roots. The changes are seen at the level of adjacent vertebrae, and among its various articulating facets as well as in the disc which acts as a cushion between two vertebrae. The supporting ligaments are affected as is the position of the vertebra with respect to the entire spinal column.

What are the symptoms of Spondylitis?

Cervical Spondylitis -

Pain in the neck often extending to the shoulders, arms and back of the head along with stiffness is the most common presenting feature.

There may be tingling and numbness of the fingers and hands.

Occasionally patients may complain of giddiness and vertigo. This may arise due to pressure on the arteries supplying blood to the brain.

Lumbar Spondylitis -

Pain in the lower back which radiates to the buttocks or down the legs along the distribution of the sciatic nerve.

May be associated with altered sensations in the legs.

Principles of management

Immobilisation and rest are known to offer relief of symptoms by limiting unnecessary movements.

After relief of acute pain, the patient has to employ measures to strengthen the adjoining muscles which offers better support to the spinal canal in the long run. Laxity of muscles of the neck and back are known to aggravate the problem.

Mechanical relief by lifting the pressure off the artery or nerve is what relieves the patient in the real sense of the term and this has been observed most definitely with the employment of suitable Homoeopathic medicines. The radiating pain, the tingling and numbness and the giddiness and vertigo are known to respond satisfactorily to Homoeopathic medicines.
