TCM holds that the occurrence of cervical spondy-lopathy results from advanced age, deficiency of kidney qi and insufficiency of nourishment~ another reason is disorders of qi and blood in the human body, or stagnation of pathological products such as dampness, phlegm, blood stasis, etc., which cause obstruction of the meridians and dysfunction of tendons and bones, resulting in the problem.
