Ayurvedic Treatment for Back Pain Ancient Wisdom for Modern Aches

A frequent issue that has not spared anyone is Back pain! It is a common issue that affects people irrespective of age and gender. Various factors are responsible for back aches which can cause a  range of symptoms (mild to severe). 

According to Ayurveda, the vitiation of Vata Dosha is responsible for the disorders related to the spine. The bones, and muscles, become dry, brittle, and are more susceptible to injury. Ayurvedic Treatment for Back Pain is based on a purely natural approach and heals with utmost care. 

Causes of Back pain: Some of the common causes/risk factors are:

  • Poor posture: If the person has an incorrect posture while sitting, or sleeping pain may arise. Lifting heavy objects and bending or performing tasks that require a lot of pressure on the back is the common cause of persistent back pain. 
  • Sedentary lifestyle: An inactive routine, where no physical activity is present leads to muscle strain. The pressure on the spine and nerves due to prolonged sitting put the person at more risk for back pain. 
  • Vata Dosha imbalance: When the equilibrium of the tridoshas is disturbed the pain begins. The vitiation of Vata Dosha primarily is the causal factor of the back ache. 
  • Poor diet: Unhealthy diet, dry, cold, and having processed foods, or skipping meals can cause the accumulation of toxins in the body. The digestive fire is directly linked to spine pain. 
  • Stress: Stress has a vital role to play as the nervous system is affected. The nerves and the activity of the brain are hindered which causes a wide range of warning signs along with pain. 
  • Disorder: If there is already existing condition like Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Ankylosing spondylitis, Sciatica, nerve compression, slipped disc, or any kind of injury the person is likely to suffer from back ache. 

Other symptoms which are associated with back pain are:

  1. Stiffness
  2. Numbness
  3. Tingling sensation
  4. Weakness
  5. Pain that radiates to arms or legs
