Ayurvedic Treatment For Back Pain

Reno NV Low Back Pain
Back pain is one of the most common pain disorders today. It is a chronic disease characterized by a dull ache or sharp persistent lower back. It may also be associated with burning, stiffness, numbness or tingling in the shooting pain in the buttocks and legs.
When we stand the functions of the lumbar spine maintain most of the weight of the body. When we bend, extend or rotate at the waist, lower back is involved in the movement. Back pain is often precipitated by moving, lifting or twisting of the waist. Severe pain in the lower back can be very debilitating for patients. Low back pain restricts activity and reduces work capacity and quality of enjoyment of everyday life and everyday life becomes a misery.

Survey indicates that 70 percent of people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. The highest rate of back pain occurs between the 45 to 64 years. The incidence of low back pain is higher among women. In 90 percent of patients, low back pain resolves within six weeks, that is, self-limited. In another 5 per cent the pain resolves by 12 weeks. Less than 5 percent of the countdown to the pain of paying a nerve root.

Causes
One of the most common causes of back pain is poor posture habit. Balanced posture decreases stress on your back, keeping the muscles, bones and other supporting parts in their natural position. Any change in normal spinal curve can stress or pull muscles. This leads to muscle contraction, which causes pain. Back pain may be due to health problems such as osteoporosis, scoliosis, spinal stenosis. Sprain or strain of muscles or ligaments in the area also may be manifested by low back pain. Other possible causes include fibromyalgia and benign or malignant. A fall or blow to the back can strain or tear tissues around the spine, or even break a bone that leads to back pain. Lack of exercise or incorrect exercise can also lead to low back pain. Being overweight or obese is also a cause of low back pain.


 Treatment for low back pain
Conservative treatment is the most likely course of action for most patients. Treatment options include rest, traction, short wave diathermy, non steroidal anti-inflammatory, weight control, steroid injections in step by step order.
If a patient does not get relief after 8 to 12 weeks of conservative therapy surgical intervention is considered. The most common surgical procedure is a discectomy, which involves removing the soft gel-like material on the disc. This procedure returns the disc to a more normal shape, relieving pressure on the nerve. the neurosurgeon can also perform a foraminotomy, which is a procedure designed to enlarge the opening of the nerve passes through.
Drugs and knives do not always work, because 60% to 90% of illness is the result of a structural lesion, but rather the response of the mind-body stress

Ayurvedic Perspective
Ayurveda holds that low back pain is the result of the corruption of one of the three principal 'doshas'. "Kateegraham '/' Prishtasoola" or low back pain is an indication of Vata aggravation and bone and muscle weakness.

Herbal preparations like 'Asthavargam' are administered internally. Recommended daily purge restore the vitiated 'dosha' to the state of normalcy.
Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments like Abhyanga (oil massage), Basti (meditated enema) are very helpful in relieving backache and correcting abnormalities. Drugs like Yogarajaguggul, Lakshadiguggul, Triphala Guggul, tailam Mahanarayana are useful in this disease.

Yogasana Yoga for low back pain
The source of pain is most often himself going beyond the physical or emotional. The spine needs stability and, therefore, the mind must be constant. Therefore, the first step is to learn to relax your mind and focus on specific areas of back pain. With practice, you can redirect the body's energy and affect the pain.
Among Yogasanas when there is pain, start with a simple copy of the curves, such as lobster, cat, and Sunbird. To keep the spine aligned practice Hero Pose.

Caution: Before attempting any of these postures, consult a yoga teacher or therapist to determine the best postures for your condition.
