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.
