Arm, hand and finger numb and weak, nerves pinch at spine vertebrate c4,c5,c6 and c7. What is cure?

Dear sir, I have been encouraged to contact you for the problem I am facing with regards to my health. My right arm , hand and fingers are numb and weak. I am gradually loosing control of my hand and fingers. On advice of the medical professionals, I got my MRI test done, which indicated that nerves at the spine Vert. C4,C5,C6 and C7 were pinched.So surgery was done to open the gap between the vertebrae by putting metal plates and screws. The problem did not go away instead increased. The nerve conductivity test was also got done which is normal. After this I contacted one doctor of Ayurveda , who says it is due to vata (Vayu) imbalance in the body. I would like to know if you have any cure in your system of medicine? If so, what is the procedure to approach you and how much cost is involved? If I have to stay at there, how long will it be. I will appreciate an early reply from you. With regards, Devinder Sharma YYYY@YYYY

1. could be cervical herniated disc or cervical radiculopathy, resulting in sensory and/or motor deficits.
2. you have done MRI, consult for CT myelography?
3. even if cause of radiculopathy is different all will lead to one symptom: compression and irritation of the cervical nerve root.
4. is Spurling's sign and shoulder abduction test been done?
5. from my side, because there is compression; massage will be contraindicated, you can consult with your Ayurveda Physician regarding any best treatment he/she has to offer

Welcome to HCM
as per your MRI report there was nerve compression at the cervical portion. after the surgical procedure still it is not reducing. The pain is nerve origin. Though the compression has been released but the injury caused by the compression has not yet healed up. Though the nerve conduction is normal but the demyelination of the nerve fiver due to past history compression has not yet covered. Some homeopathic medicines has good scope in nerve injury cases. If you would like can take those medicines. Here I am suggesting few medicines you can take it.
Chamomilla CM - liquid- 2 to 3 drops once daily for 4 days . Then give a gap of 4 days and again take once daily for 4 days. after 2 week you can contact me here.
Thank you

Dear Devinder sharma ji
Your problem is well defined as per your MRI report. The ayurvedic version of vaatic imbalance is true as all diseases relating to nervous system can be grouped under this category. Usually guggul based anti inflammatory medicines offer relief by reducing pressure and by regulating muscle tone relieving if any spasm is there. This effect is further augmented by use of panch karma a procedure called griva vasti where in slightly heated medicated oil is kept over affected area for about half an hour daily for seven to ten days regularly initially. This will cure your problem and restore proper strength.
