The neck pain is a problem that appears usually over the age of fourty, because it is caused by degeneration of the cervical discs and cervical vertebra, also including all the changes that occur in the cervical spine. The treated patient is a 47 year old man diagnosed with cervical spondylosis. According TCM the pain can be caused by stagnation of Qi and blood in the body. This kind of stagnation appears due to trauma, an external invasion of wind, cold, dampness or heat, poor diet, insufficient rest coupled with too much activity or overwork (ie, busy live, excessive sex), overuse of drugs, chronic illness, heredity weakness, an excess of the emotions fear and anxiety, and general aging as our Qi is naturally declining. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) suggests that cervical spondylosis can be treated with acupuncture, gua sha and cupping therapy.
