Sandhigata Vata is a common Vata predominant disorder found in all races. Cervical spondylosis is described as a degenerative condition of the cervical spine. It leads to pain, stiffness in the joints, pain radiates into shoulders and fore arm, headache, vertigo, giddiness, paraesthesia at the base of the thumb etc. In modern medical science, the role of analgesics, corticosteroids, surgical decompression, traction has been credited and discredited mainly because of their draw backs and limited benefits. In this study panchadhatu shalaka was used for Agnikarma. Its Ushna, Sukshma, Ashukari guna probably pacifies the vitiated Vata Kapha Dosha and removes Srotoavarodha. To control the degenerative process Ajmodadi vati was selected for internal use. In this clinical research work, 27 patients of Cervical spondylosis (Sandhigata Vata) were randomly selected and divided into two groups i.e. group A and group B , treated with Agnikarma and Ajamodadi vati orally respectively. Comparatively more relief was found in group - A.
