LOW BACK PAIN
Best Herbal Ayurveda Treatment
LOW BACK PAIN
The area below the ribcage is called low back also called lumbar region. It is a well engineered structure of interconnecting bones, joints, nerves, ligaments, muscles etc all working together to provide support and flexibility.
Our low back is considered as a weight bearing joint which bears the weight of the upper body and provides mobility. The muscles of the low back are responsible for flexing and rotating the hip.
Low back ache results from any injury to muscles, ligaments joints or discs. Since the low back is a tightly engineered structure, there is an overlap of many nerves to disc, muscle, ligaments and many other spinal structures, so the brain finds it very difficult to sense accurately the root of pain. Sometimes a degenerated disc can be felt the same as that of a pulled muscle since both create pain and inflammation in the same area.
Symptoms of low back region
- Stinging on that moves from low back to thighs
- Pain that is dull or achy
- Numbness or tingling sensation
- Muscle spasms
- Acute pain: this type of pain comes suddenly and lasts for a few weeks and is considered as a normal response to sudden jerk and it subsides as the inflammation goes down
- Sub acute pain: this type of pain is more of a mechanical nature that arises due to strain and lasts between weeks to months.
- Chronic pain: pain that continues for 12 weeks or longer
Treatment of Low Back Ache
The treatment of low back pain goes initially by diagnosing the cause of low back pain. Correct treatment for the underlying cause is very important as many of the low backaches can rarely be of neurological deficit like cauda equina syndrome or may be of serious causes like fracture, cancer etc.
Treatment in ayurveda
Ruling out the pathological fracture or any such serious fractures, the treatment of low back ache is as that of vata vyadhi.
Ruksha treatments are followed to reduce the signs of inflammation. Later on switching into snehana and swedana followed by vasthi can reduce both acute and chronic pain.
