The Back of a human being is responsible to move forward. The total back is supported by the spine or back bone. The back bone is comprised of the vertebrae, The vertebral column can be divided into four parts. They are cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacrum. So as the back can be divided. The lumbar and sacral part of the spine can be called the lower back.
Pain is of different types. They are shooting, cutting, cramping, spasmodic, throbbing types etc. The nature of pain varies depending upon many factors. The site of occurrence, the reason of occurrence, the season, the pathogenesis, age etc impact over the nature of pain. Low Back Pain treatment.
Onset of low back ache is mostly of two types. Occurrence of pain is gradual or sudden. Gradual back pain takes place with aging, extra involvement in physical work, pregnancy, over weight etc. Sudden onset of lower back pain takes palace as a result of trauma, injury, sprain etc. It takes place due to road traffic accident, weight lifting etc.
The commonest change in the body that causes lower back pain is change in alignment in the muscles, nerves, spine etc. Any change in position of spine may stretch the spinal chord. Or else it may compress the inter vertebral disc. The compressed inter vertebral disc is prolapsed towards the spinal chord. This is called Prolapsed Inter Vertebral Disc. This prolapse or protrusion is called disc herniation, The herniated disc invades into the spinal canal causing a constriction.
The narrowing of the spinal canal is called spinal canal stenosis. It affects the continuation of the spinal chord. It affects the normal function of the spinal chord and the peripheral nervous system.
A sprain, tear or a twist in the lumbar muscles may cause low back ache. Also one cyst or tumor inside the spinal canal can cause an obstruction. That becomes a grave reason for lower back pain.
Lower back pain occur around the lumbar area, Some times it radiates to the middle or upper back. But mostly it is either confined to low back or radiates to legs also. The radiation of back pain to legs may be unilateral or symmetrical. Spasmodic pain in lower back and cramps in the thigh and calf muscles are common.
The Sciatic Pain with tingling sensation is also observed. Burning sensation in low back, hip or leg, numbness, weaknesses are also observed.
All these signs and symptoms of lower back pain interfere into the normal life style of a person. It prevents the person from standing, sitting, walking, cycling etc. Prolonged standing or walking worsens the situation. Lying down on a floor may help relieving the pain.
Lower Back Pain Ayurvedic treatment
Lower back pain treatment is very well possible by Ayurveda Panchakarma treatment. It helps the patient rehabilitating his problem. It helps avoiding spine surgery. Surgery interrupts the continuation of the muscle. Laminectomy or any type of spinal surgery removes the prolapsed mass. But it does not stop the process of vertebral compression.
At the other side, Ayurveda Panchakarma treatment tones the lumber muscles. It prevents the compression of the vertebral spine. It rehabilitates the prolapsed mass. Application of oil minimizes the cramp and spasm of the muscle. We can just think of “ how lower back pain was managed in ancient time without modern medicine”. It was Ayurveda in India that took care of lower back pain.
Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments like Abhyanga (oil massage), Kizhi, Kativasti, KashayaVasti (meditated enema) are very much helpful in relieving backache and correcting abnormalities. Drugs like Yogarajaguggulu, Lakshadiguggulu, Sallaki, Maanarayana tailam are useful in this condition.
