At Sreechithra, we realise pain as a highly subjective mind and body experience. We incorporate different diagnostic methodologies in identifying the root cause of pain and plan unique customised treatment strategies to eliminate the causes.
Ayurvedic procedures such as Abhyangam, Kaya Sekam, Pinda Swedham, Shirodhara etc. along with yoga asanas and pranayama are some of the means to rebalance, strengthen, and purify the mind/body variables that lower our pain sensitivity.
In modern-day lifestyle, poor posture, prolapsed intervertebral disc or strained muscles and ligament, inflammation of the pelvic joints, chronic constipation – any of these may cause either a sudden or gradual onset of lower backache. This results in aggravated Vata. Sometimes lower backache may be associated with sciatica, a typical condition characterized by pain radiating from the lower back to the backside of either one or both legs.
Treatment at Sreechithra Ayurhome:
Specific herbal medication, along with therapies like kativasti, kaadidhara, local patrapotala Sweda helps to alleviate the agitated Vayu. Administration of medicated enemas for a period of 15 or 30 days also gives much relief. Postural corrections are also advised along with mild yoga exercises for the low back.
Prevention and Remedies:
The way you sit, stand and walk, work on the desk, lift and carry objects, choose footwear, travel, sleep, maintain your body weight and the positive energy you exude has a telling effect on the health of your back. If you wish to reduce the wear and tear of the muscles, bones and joints of your back, make it a habit to keep a good posture. It also adds considerably to your poise.
