Low back pain is not a specific disease; rather it is a symptom that may occur from a variety of different processes. Back pain can have many reasons, but often no specific cause will be found and the pain will stop. 

Best Ayurveda Treatment for Lower Back Pain

According to Ayurveda, this is a Vata disorder. The Vata dosha gets vitiated due to various reasons of faulty dietary and lifestyle habits. This vitiated Vata dosha travels throughout the body and accumulates in the area of blocked channels. In this case, it finds blockage in the channels of the low back area and gets accumulated there thus causing pain for that various ayurvedic treatment for lower back pain is available.

A person can feel lower back pain due to these mentioned issues, but not to worry as people are getting relief from pain using the ayurvedic treatment, therapy, and medicines:

  3. Normal pregnancy can also cause back pain due to stretching the pelvic ligaments and straining the low back.
  4. Ankylosing Spondylitis causing stiffness and pain in the spine worsen in the morning. 
  5. In cauda equine syndrome, the spinal cord is directly compressed causing nerve compression. The patient may experience pain and loss of sensation in the area supplied by the compressed nerve, bowel, or bladder dysfunction.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Lower Back Pain Management

The most powerful ayurvedic treatments for removing toxins are SukhAyurveda Detox Therapies. These Ayurveda treatment programs may include Abhyangam massage, Herbal bun (pottali) massage, purgation, and mild herbal enema. Kadivasti has a major impact on treating patients of lower back pain.

These ayurvedic treatments are given in combination according to the patients’ constitution and pain level in the lower back. These create the ideal internal physical environment for healing. SukhAyurveda Detox Therapies address the problem of toxin accumulation by systematically Loosening impurities that have become embedded in tissues and helping liquefy them for easy absorption into the circulation and eventual elimination.

Softening and opening the channels of circulation and elimination so proper nourishment can reach the tissues of lower back and impurities can be more easily eliminated from them. Activating the elimination process for the most thorough cleansing of the entire physiology. 

Proper Nutrition 

SukhAyurveda Consultant provides guidance for the proper diet to be taken and to avoid the food items aggravating the disease. Avoid foods that are hard-to-digest (like milk, caffeine, pulses like a kidney bean, etc) clogging to the physiology and aggravating to the doshas(functioning modes) that are already imbalanced in you. Favor foods that are easy-to-digest, nourishing, cleanse the physiology, strengthen digestion, and balance your body's inner intelligence. 

Ayurveda Herbs for Lower Back Pain

The purpose of using ayurveidc herbs and medicines is to restore balance to the doshas(specific functioning modes) whose malfunctioning is causing your condition. Ayurveda Consultant selects the appropriate herbal formulas for alleviating Vata and Kapha doshas.

Traditional Ayurveda theory says that ayurvedic medicine for lower back pain most effective after a person completes a Detox program. The cleansing and rejuvenation treatments are the main focus of SukhAyurveda. Once the cleansing program is finished, maximum benefits are achieved from the herbal program. 

Lifestyle and Daily Routine to Reduce Lower Back Pain Issues

One of the most important factors for maintaining healthy functioning is to have a lifestyle that does not disturb natural bodily rhythms. When we eat, sleep, and exercise in constantly fluctuating and disturbing patterns, the body loses its natural balancing cycles and cannot cleanse or heal itself as effectively.

SukhAyurveda Consultants review daily routine and create a daily schedule that will increase balance in physiology and aid in the healing of the body. Stretching activities that place additional strain on the back are discouraged. While sleeping on your back keep a pillow under your knees and in case lying on one side keep a pillow in between your knees.

This keeps your back straight and helps in relieving lower back pain also. In sitting positions, support to low back should be given by a small pillow or rolled towel. Don’t bend forward to lift heavy objects if you will have to lift the weight then keep your back straight up and down, head up and lift with your knees

Yoga Helps in Lowering Lower Back Pain

SukhAyurveda considers Yoga as a non-dietary regiment to improve digestive strength, circulation, nervous system function, the body's healing response. We offer Yoga classes every day and teach a simple but profound set of postures that you can practice daily. For Low back pain, we recommend

  • Many other yoga asanas are also advised according to the patient’s problem.

Strengthening the Body's Natural Healing and Self-Repair Mechanisms

Ultimately every ayurvedic treatment approach must depend on the body's natural healing ability for a real cure of the condition. SukhAyurveda approach is not to attack the disorder with something from the outside, but to attempt to enliven the innate healing response of the body.

The healing response is one of the most complex and coordinated activities within the human physiology and often cannot be strengthened significantly without a comprehensive natural approach. 

Taking together, all the SukhAyurveda programs described above, aim to create the ideal mental, physical, and behavioral environment for healing. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
