Introduction: Cervical spondylosis is a common age-related condition characterized by degenerative changes in the intervertebral discs. Neck discomfort is the most prevalent symptom, and it continues to be one of the top causes of disability and growing health-care expenses. About 10 million persons per year suffer from cervical spondylosis in India. The incidence of neck pain is 25%–50% per year in the adult population. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are being used to provide relief in neck pain. The study was planned to assess the effect of Ayurvedic interventions in the management of cervical spondylosis. Methods: A total of 40 clinically diagnosed patients of Greeva Sandhigata Vata were randomly divided into two equal groups by computer generated randomization method. In Group A, patients were treated with Tryodashanaga Guggulu and Sahacharadi Kwath. In Group B, patients were treated with Tryodashanaga Guggulu and Sahacharadi Kwath, along with Greeva Basti (Prasarini Taila). Results: Tryodashanaga Guggulu and Sahacharadi Kwatha had provided 45.24% relief in pain (P = 0.001), 52.92% improvement in Neck Disability Index (P = 0.001), while Tryodashanaga Guggulu and Sahacharadi Kwatha along with Greeva Basti (Prasarini Taila) showed 56.47% relief in pain (P = 0.001) and 64.33% improvement in the Neck Disability Index (P = 0.001) which were statistically highly significant. On comparison, the difference in improvement in Pain (P = 0.007) Neck Disability Index (P = 0.026) was statistically significant. Conclusion: Tryodashanaga Guggulu and Sahacharadi Kwatha along with Greeva Basti (Prasarini Taila) are more effective in the management of cervical spondylosis (Greeva Sandhigata Vata) as compared to Tryodashanaga Guggulu and Sahacharadi Kwatha without Greeva Basti (Prasarini Taila).
