Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your persistent back pain could be due to you driving a 2 wheeler since a long time. Can you tell me whether your leg pain you feel is radiating from your lower back region or is it an independent entity? also do you feel any numbness, weakness, paresthesias in legs as well? have you got some investigations like x rays of your back and blood tests like vitamin d tests for leg pain etc? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I have a torn ligament. Will it be correct to go for orthopedic surgeons or what else?

Physiotherapist, Hyderabad
Dear Mr Avirat, the answer to the question you pose depends upon the severity & degree of tear your ligament has undergone, in cases where the tear is bad , surgery alone at the earlist without much linger can help you achieve optimal outcome, pls do consult your Ortho surgeon , do not have an iota of thought that anything else may help if the tear is severe, because surgery alone has proved to be the best way to restore you back to fittness if the tear is severe & limiting your daily activity & restricting your lifestyle

Ayurvedic Treatment of Sciatica

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Ayurvedic Treatment of Sciatica

Gridhrasi is what Sciatica is known as in Ayurveda. It is the disorder that causes mild to agonizing pain in the sciatic nerve or neuralgia. These nerves, emerging from the pelvis, run along the hamstring and may cause intense pain in one or both the legs when a person suffers from Sciatica. Sciatic pains fill your life with misery as the simplest of daily activities cause sudden and excruciating pain. There are two types of sciatica i.e. true sciatica and pseudo sciatica. Sciatica may be caused due to bulging disc or herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, piriformis syndrome, pregnancy or trauma etc. 

According to Ayurveda, Sciatica is caused due to impairment in Vata i.e. the dosha responsible for the functional ability and movement of the body and also in some cases due to impairment in the Kapha i.e. the dosha that is responsible for body fluids and lubrication.

Ayurvedic herbs that improve the symptoms of Sciatica are:

  1. Babunah is also known as Bitter Chamomile. Not only is it used to relieve and reduce the pain faced by a sciatica patient, but it is also used for treating problems such as rheumatism due to the advancement of age. Compressed bitter chamomile flowers are prescribed for sciatica.
  2. Guggul is also known as Indian Bdellium. Since guggulu is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties, it relaxes the sciatic nerves.
  3. Rasna is also known as Vanda Orchid. Intense or agonizing pain due to the sciatic nerve issues can be reduced by this ayurvedic herb due to its anti-inflammatory properties. 
  4. Juniper oil is extremely helpful when massaged onto the thigh muscles with firm strokes or pressure. It is used extensively in massage therapy for treating sciatica since the extent of reduction in sciatic nerve pain is tremendous. 
  5. Jaiphal is also known as Nutmeg. After being mixed with sesame seeds oil, nutmeg is coarsely powdered and then fried till it turns brown. This is then applied to those areas where the sciatic pain is intense for instant relief.
  6. Kumari is also known as Indian Aloe. Properties of Indian Aloe are extremely helpful in treating lower back ailments such as sciatica and lumbago.
  7. Shallaki is also known as Boswellia or Frankincense. Containing anti-inflammatory properties, shallaki is applied externally to get relief from sciatic nerve pain. 

Ayurvedic preparations such as yogaraja guggulu, Vataganjakusha, Saindhavadi taila are also very useful in treating Sciatica.

I am 25 year old male and have backache for last 2 months. I have used pain relief ointment cream for couple of days but don't relief.

Ayurveda, Ambala
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket. And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back. You may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * surya namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * in diet vegetable protein of cereal, b complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

I am suffering from back pain for last two year. I consult with many doctors but there was no improvement. Please suggest me proper treatment.

Orthopedist, Solapur
I would suggest you to get a proper xray of the spine done to rule out any bony abnormality. Start with analgesic like combination of diclofenac and thiocolchicoside for atleast 7 days twice daily after food if pain subsides start with physiotherapy in form of back extension exercises and core strengthening exercises avoid sitting in one posture for longer duration and lifting weight while bending forward.

There is no known relation between drinking and osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a mild disorder which is usually treated by weight loss, regular exercise as well as knee muscle strengthening exercises.
