Muscle Dystrophy - How Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help in Curing it?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda
Ask Free Question
Muscular dystrophy is a rare disorder which results in the atrophy or degeneration of muscles. This happens as the proteins required by the body to build and maintain muscles are not produced within the body in a normal manner. Muscular dystrophy mostly affects boys and develops in early adolescence although it can affect people much younger or much later in life. Ayurveda has some great treatments which can allay the symptoms and provide relief to patients afflicted with this disease.

Treatment for Muscle dystrophy in Ayurveda
With a degenerative disease like Muscle dystrophy, simple medication won t be able to cure or relieve symptoms. Even with conventional medicines muscle dystrophy can t be cured, but the symptoms can be reduced. Ayurveda takes a holistic approach to correcting the problems which include oral medications, food as well as exercises in the form of yoga.

Herbs

Herbs are a great way to put certain minerals within the body, which can help lessen the pain and symptoms. Some of the herbs which have been known to be effective in reducing pain and also helping with movement and day to day activities may include:

Triphala
Mansrohini
Nirgundi
Guduchi
Ashwagandha and many others
However, there are no medications in readymade proportions which are specifically designed and prescribed according to the diagnosis of the patient. It also needs to be complemented with a proper diet also known as Mamsagni Rasayana.

Diet or Mamsagni Rasayana

This is a very tailored diet and supplement approach to create and put the required nutrients which will slow down the decay of muscles within the body and will also help build new muscle to slow down decay. These will include extracts from herbs which will be made into chemicals and then used to make dietary supplements.

Yoga and specialized physiotherapy exercises

Yogic postures combined with certain walking and standing postures performed over time can also help reduce the symptoms and lessen the rate of decay. Some of the exercises that are helpful for various activities are:

Standing and movements: Padahastasana, Tad asana, Trikonasana, Vakrasana
Sitting: Paschimottanasa, Vakrasana, Shashankasana
To help with breathing: Ardha Shalabhasana, Pranayama, Bhramri Pranayama

Pain in the shoulder blades can be caused by bad posture, shoulder overuse, injuries, pinched spinal nerves, lung diseases and disorders of other chest and abdominal organs. The very first thing to do if you develop pain under shoulder blade is to pay attention to how you use your arms and shoulders on a regular basis. Try to stop doing anything that will apply pressure to your shoulders so you can rest it instead. Try to also rest the shoulder regularly, by supporting your back or lying flat. If the pain is from poor posture try to do Shoulder blade retraction exercises to strengthen your upper back muscles. In cases of inflammation from overstretched soft tissues, like muscles, applying ice can help provide relief. Wrap the ice in cloth so it doesn’t directly touch the skin and apply it for fifteen minutes three times a day to reduce pain and inflammation. Applying a heating pad to the shoulder can also help. It will improve blood circulation to relieve pain and speed up recovery. You can only select the right treatment option for pain under shoulder blade after diagnosing the cause. Please see a Physiotherapist to determine the cause and treatment.

Thank you for writing to us. Please note the following for your condition: • Avoid big meals late in the evening. You need three to four hours to digest a big meal. • Spicy or sugary food, even at suppertime, is usually a bad idea. Spices can irritate your stomach, and when it tosses and turns, so will you. Having a lot of sugary food—especially chocolate, which contains caffeine—can make you feel jumpy. If this does not helps you get back to me. Thanks.

Bone pain needs to be thoriughly investigated. We need routine as well as some specialised blood tests. The most common cause is osteomalacia. But there can be other causes like myeloma.
