spine and play an important role in producing disease like Cervical Spondylosis . Cervical spondylosis is a degenerative condition of
cervical spine associated with pain, stiffness, tingling sensation radiating pain from shoulder to digits along the course of the nerve
indicates nerve root compression. Manyastambha is one of the vatavyadhi enumerated in Nanatmaja vatavyadhi . According to sushruta
nidan sthan by day sleep , sitting and standing (in fixed position) and gazing obliquely, the vata covered by kapha causes manyastambha.
