Introduction: Cervical spondylosis is one of the most common degenerative, neurological conditions of the cervical spine by which a major part of population is affected. In today's mobile era, for higher achievements and ambitions, man is moving faster to Mars life and is more prone to degenerative disorders. Apart from age, other risk factors for cervical spondylosis include occupations that may cause more stress on neck, certain neck injuries, incorrect posture while sitting or walking, smoking, sedentary lifestyle and genetic factors. Modern therapies such as analgesics, muscle relaxants, steroids, physiotherapies, and even operative procedures are not fulfilling the patients' goal of healthy life. Materials and Methods: In Ayurveda, Degenerative disorders come under the broad umbrella of Vata Vyadhi and Nasya (Nasal Medication) is specifically indicated in Urdhvajatrugata Vikaras. Keeping this view and the increasing incidence of the disease in modern society, a study was conducted on five clinically diagnosed cases of cervical spondylosis, selected from Outpatient / Inpatient departments of Panchakarma Department. The patients were treated with Anu taila Nasya for first 3 days followed by Avartita Kshirabala Taila Nasya for the next 4 days. Results: Satisfactory relief was seen in symptoms with improved quality of life after treatment and follow up. Conclusion: Nasya Karma can be considered as an effective management of cervical spondylosis
