People who have neck pain won't usually resort to surgery just to take away their pain. You might consider other interventions such as spa, massage or herbal medicines, but never surgery. Cervical spondylosis and its treatments are usually tagged as simple and practical. Since the symptoms are very common, people tend to think the treatment is also the same, simple and practical. However, this is not always true.
Cervical spondylosis is a chronic condition although in most cases, it does not end up to the severe stage. When there is an occurrence of spinal stenosis as a symptom, surgery is usually required. Surgery is done to eliminate the root of the tension on your nerves and spinal cord. It may also contain accumulating stabilization in the form of implants or through the vertebrae's union. Oftentimes, surgery is only considered when the physical and motor functions are rigorously lost. If you are feeling numbness in your upper and lower extremities, for example, surgery may be considered. Functional disability which may be permanent may be caused by any kind of compression of your spinal cord including several complications of cervical spondylosis such as radiculopathy and stenosis.
Your surgeon has the option of approaching the spine anteriorly (front) or posteriorly (back). To eliminate the spurs and discs which cause pressure, front approach is usually used. The disc can be changed with an implant which can do the same function as the original intervertebral disc. A wider surgery is needed for the elimination of both parts of the vertebrae and discs. Bone implants or bone grafts are used to substitute these parts.
Back or posterior approach to the spinal cord would be used to execute a laminoplasty or a laminectomy. The spinous processes and the lamina along with the back parts of the neck's backbone are removed during a laminectomy. In laminoplasty on the other hand, the backbone is incised on one side but it remained in place. These two procedures can alleviate pressure or tension in your spinal cord.
Like with other surgeries, surgical treatment for treating cervical spondylosis also has risks for developing different complications. This can be associated with the use of general anesthesia or the development of an infection. Rehabilitation programs usually follow after the surgery.
Cervical spondylosis is a very common ailment and has a very common symptom. However, the effects of its symptoms and its duration can give you a really hard time doing your usual stuffs. Before considering a surgical treatment, try first other conventional and non-surgical treatments that are available to you. You must also seek for an advice and approval from your doctor. Surgery is not only terrifying, but also expensive. You might be free from crying due to pain after surgery, but your budget might be weeping because of the expenses you've made for the procedure. The best thing is prevention. Prevent it until you can.

There are major advantages to using alternative medicines other than an alternate way of taking medications. They are highly effective for fatigue, pain, and stress and other types of ailments. There are many illnesses herbal remedies can take care of if you know which ones to take. They are not drugs; they are a food for the body.
Herbal remedies are foods that augment your body's immune system. They can help with all kinds of ailments such as weight loss, rashes, and skin problems. Alternative medicines are herbs from Western, Chinese, and Ayurvedic healing. Each herb or healing plant has properties or chemicals in them that augment the body's cells, enzymes, and other fluids that keep the body healthy.
Healing herbs can help with digestive problems, acne and other skin problems, kidney, heart, and liver problems. Whatever the ailment there is an herb to help the body heal. Sometimes the body just needs a helping hand in the form of alternative medicines or herbs that supplement the body's natural healing powers. Using alternative medicines are easy to do when you do a little research about how the herb can help your body keep you healthy. What the body doesn't use is flushed out of the body.
There are many people who say herbs can't help with cancers or major heart or kidney problems, but they are the one who don't use the healing herbs. If you have heart problems you can take hawthorn berry to help strengthen the heart. To keep colds and flus away during the winter months you can start taking elder berry or elder flowers to strengthen the immune system.
The key to using alternative medicines is to catch the disease, virus, or illness before it become a full-fledged illness. Taking healing herbs to keep the body's immune system strong should be done on a daily bases. Again, healing herbs aren't drugs; you need to continually take them to augment your body to keep illness away. Herbs are just like food, you eat it, digest it, you get hungry, and eat again. Herbs are used up by the body the same as food it used. To keep illness away, you need to keep taking the healing herbs until the ailment is passed.
The rule of thumb for an ailment is take healing herbs for every month you've have the ailment. For example if you've had acne for 10 years, then take calendula for 10 months to heal your skin completely. One dose is not going to heal your skin. Most people don't understand herbs are used up by your body and have to be replaced, so the healing process can continue. In some cases, that particular herb may not work for you, so you try another herb with the same properties.
All people are different and have different body chemistry. Not all herbs will work for all people, but there are alternative medicines that have the same properties that will work for you.
