I have neck and lower back pain and suffering it from a long time. If I massage them, I get temporary relief but iit returns back soon. What can be the reasons and its remedy?
I am a male 64 years age. 2 years ago I had developed knee pain which occurred quite suddenly while working at my computer in the office. Pain was initially on the right knee. After examination by an orthopedic doctor he advised me of arthroscopic surgery. I had undergone this surgery with subsequent physiotherapy for 6 months. During this time pain started in the left knee also. The doctor says it is arthritis. Now after the physiotherapy I am able to walk, but have lost the flexibility of both knees. (Cannot bend more than 90 degrees) I would like to know if there is any treatment to restore this flexibility other than knee replacement surgery.
Panchakarma is an ayurvedic technique which is used to detoxify the body, boost the immune system and restore the balance in the body. Due to lack of exercise and a poor diet, the waste material generated by the body is not effectively discharged. This causes accumulation of toxins in the body that can result in diseases.
Panchakarma can be used to treat and heal the pain in the joints and the spine. There are specific treatments in panchakarma that targets these regions, they are:
1. Abhyanga - Abhyanga is a technique where warm oil is used to cover the entire body. The oil is then gently massaged so that it can penetrate the underlying tissues. It is used to lubricate the joints, muscle toning and to increase blood supply around nerve endings.
2. Pindasweda - In this technique hot cotton bags consisting of herbs, rice, and sand or medical powder are used to massage the body. This rejuvenating therapy induces perspiration in the body by which the herbs and the heat penetrates into the body. It is used to treat problems of the joints such as gout, arthritis, and sciatica.
3. Upanaha - A combination of herbal medicine is applied to the affected part and then covered with medicinal leaves. The herbs help in easing the muscles and tendons of the affected part. It relieves pain, reduces swellings and improves mobility in the joint.
4. Kati vista - In this treatment, medicated oil is pooled into a collar made from dough and then placed on the lower back for a specific amount of time. It strengthens the lower back, lubricates the spine and acts as a muscle pain reliever. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.
