Cervical Dystonia – Effective Homeopathic Medicines for Neck Stiffness

Cervical dystonia is a form of focal dystonia. Cervical dystonia refers to a painful condition of the neck arising from involuntary contraction of the neck muscles. The pain is attended with a tilting of the neck and head. In some cases, the head and neck can tilt in a forward or backward position. Cervical dystonia is also known as spasmodic torticollis. Homeopathy carries an excellent scope to treat cervical dystonia. With the use of homeopathic medicines, the episodes of neck muscle contraction, as well as the intensity, are seen to reduce with time. Lachanathes, Lycopodium, and Rhus Tox are the top homeopathic medicines for cervical dystonia.

Causes of Cervical Dystonia

Cervical dystonia is an idiopathic condition i.e. the reason behind the cervical dystonia is not known. Sometimes cervical dystonia is seen to run in families, so a genetic link is seen in this condition. Sometimes a history of injury to the neck or shoulders may be present. Cervical dystonia can develop at any age but is mostly seen to appear after the age of 30 years. The condition of cervical dystonia is more commonly seen in females as compared to the males. Sternocleidomastoid, trapezius and other neck muscles are involved in this condition.

Symptoms of Cervical Dystonia

The main feature of cervical dystonia is a tilting of the head and neck to either side of the body. In some cases pulling of head and neck forward (anterocollis) or backward (retrocollis) may also be present. The intensity of the muscle contraction varies from mild to severe form. Along with the above features, there is neck pain and discomfort. Sometimes the neck pain may also radiate to the shoulders. In some cases, jerking or tremors of the head may also be noted. Cervical dystonia may also be seen to spread to other areas like the face and the jaw. Headaches may also arise in such conditions. The symptoms of cervical dystonia seem to worsen from stress and motion while rest seems to bring relief.

    Good Evening Sir,
    I am Sanjay Kumar Baliarsingh, aged about 55 years old. At/po- Manamunda of District Boudh(Odisha). I am suffering from Cervical Dystonia since last 8 months. My head is frequently pulling upward and twisting right side. When I am trying to keep my head to normal position, it is automatically going to upside. Due to frequent attempts, there is a pain felt in the neck and back. Since beginning of the disease, I have been taking many allopathic medicines under supervision of a neurology doctor of CARE Hospital, Bhubaneswar. Many tests like Brain MRI, CT Scan, Echo test, Eye test, Chest X-Ray and different Blood Tests. But all the test results are normal. So, Sir what can be done for me ? Can I be completely cured ? Awaiting for quick response.
    Warm regards,
    Sanjay Kumar Baliarsingh
