LOW BACK PAIN

LOW BACK PAIN

by Kottakkal Support February 08, 2020

 

BACK PAIN IS A MASSIVE PROBLEM WHICH IS BADLY TREATED

 

A recent article in The Economist suggests even after surgery 87 % still suffer from back pain. 

“In 2011 Cigna, an American insurance company ran a follow-up study on patients who had undergone procedures in which vertebrae are stitched together with implanted bolts and braces. “Spinal fusion” of this type is a frequently used surgical response to back pain that is associated with the degeneration of spinal discs; in 2015 there were roughly 85,000 such surgeries in America. The company found that two years after treatment 87% of customers were still in pain severe enough for medication or some other treatment; 15% had more surgery.” (1).

“Ayurvedic Perspective of Low Back Pain
Ayurveda holds that low back pain is a result of the vitiation of one of the three principal 'doshas'. It is an indication of Vata aggravation and bone and muscle weakness (2).

Ayurvedic Management for Low back pain
The management for low back pain in Ayurveda is to bring the vitiated 'dosha' back to the state of equilibrium and thereby to the state of health. For managing low back pain, internal as well as external treatments are done. Herbal preparations like Ashtavargam Kwatham are administered internally. Daily purgation is recommended to restore the vitiated 'dosha' to the state of normalcy.

Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments like Abhyanga (oil massage), Basti (meditated enema) are very much helpful in relieving backache and correcting abnormalities. Products like Yogaraja Guggulu Vatika, Lakshadi Guggul, Triphala Guggul, and Maha Narayana Oil are useful in this condition” (3).
