Hello! My father has been diagnosed cervical arthritis few days ago. He had many problems with stiffness in his neck. He also started to feel severe headaches lately and that was the main reason for visiting his doctor. He also felt loss of balance. What are available treatments for cervical arthritis?

Hello! The treatment that showed the best results is actually the combination of rest, drug therapy and exercise. The best is to find a physical therapist who will guide your father in performing gentle neck exercises. Aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) are usually recommended to decrease swelling and relieve pain. Cold compresses and massage may be useful as well as ultrasound of whirlpool treatments. Also, your father has to avoid stressful conditions.
