Heal Your Lower Back Pain With Ayurveda

In this modern fast-paced era, strained muscles, our posture, and the inflammation of pelvic joints can cause severe lower back pain. It results in the Vata getting aggravated. 

In Ayurveda, the treatment for back, lower back, spinal, and neck pains depends upon the patient’s doshas, bodily constitution, type and severity of pain, medical history, and root causative factor(s). A detailed physical examination of the patient is done by the physician before further conclusions. 

The majority of the lower back pains are associated with the aggravation of Vata, bone and muscle weakness (Asthi Dhatu Kshaya or Mamsa Dhatu Kshaya), and life imbalances. A wide range of Ayurvedic treatments and remedies are available for the treatment of lower back pain. The most highly recommended Ayurvedic remedy for lower back pain is Kativasthi treatment. Ayurvedic medicines for lower back pain such as herbs like Guggul, Ginger, Shallaki, and Nirgundi help to alleviate and treat lower back pain.

  • Strains and sprains: Lifting heavy objects can injure your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. 
  • Arthritis: The most common type of arthritis to cause severe lower back pain is Osteoarthritis. 
  • Disk Problems: Disks cushion the small spinal bones (vertebrae). These disks can bulge from their position and press on a nerve.
