Spondin – The Most Effective Natural Remedy for Neck & Shoulder Pain

SpondylitisCervical spondylitis and cervical spondylosis are both disorders that affect the region surrounding the neck and shoulder. It develops as a result of wear and tear of the cartilage and bones of the cervical spine (area around the neck), which might extend to the shoulders and arms.

In case of cervical spondylitis, patients experience inflammation and stiffness in their vertebral joints, leading to neck pain. In extreme cases, patients may find it difficult to move their neck and shoulders at all. Cervical spondylosis, on the other hand, sees degeneration of the spine that leads to fusion on the vertebral column at the neck area. Patients experience abnormal wear and tear of the cartilage and spine bones.
