People with desk jobs have a lifestyle of spending hours working on computers continuously whereas watching TV, mobile phones and sleeping in the wrong posture can also cause back pain which can last for weeks.

Let us try to understand “What are the reason for back pain?”

Our spine is composed of Muscles, bones, vertebrae, nerves, discs, ligaments etc., back pain can be associated to the issues between any of these components in our back like discs between vertebrae, muscles or ligaments in our back. Let us take an example of Disc bulge:
When the disc between two vertebrae is inflamed, it starts swelling and then start protruding out of the socket. Now, there is nerve underlining the socket which gets pressed due to the swelling of discs and there is pain in the back due to the disc inflammation, strain on the vertebrae and a radiating pain due to the pinching of the nerves.

Modern medicine vs Ayurveda for back pain treatment

According to modern medicine, Back pain treatment in acute cases is performed through over the counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce pain and inflammation. These medicine only masks the symptoms whereas the cause of the pain remains unidentified which is why the chances of reoccurrence are very high. At the same time, NSAIDs administered for the chronic cases of back pain can cause kidney dysfunction, ulcers, gastrointestinal problems whereas in some patients they can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Prescription opioids are used in chronic cases to relieve back pain, but they are addictive, cause drowsiness, impaired judgement and can aggravate depression. In sciatica and other associated complaints, epidural steroid injection is administered to provide back pain relief. Long-term use of these steroids can cause structural changes in body, heart attack, liver impairment etc.  Sometimes instead of steroid, surgery is recommended to the patients which can take months before the patient is healed and may lead to permanent loss of flexibility. The success rate of surgical procedures is unpredictable and there is little evidence to which procedure works best for a particular indication.
On the other hand, Ayurveda has attained global attention because of its holistic approach for Musculo-skeletal pain treatments which focuses on lifestyle leading to overall health. Herbal ayurvedic medicine for back pain is given to support the treatment internally whereas decoctions, herbal oil etc. are applied externally to provide local support to the back leading to fast back pain relief.

External treatments such as podikizhi, Abhyanga, Elakizhi, Vasthi etc. are best for detoxification, providing nourishment to the spine and improving the functionality of the muscles, nerves all around the body. The only side effects we at Sreeragam Ayurveda Health retreat have seen so far is based mostly on the error of the application process:

  • Burning sensation on the applied area which is only felt for 1-2 days
  • Itching around the areas of external application which can be cured within 1-3 days
  • Pain around the pressure points where the abhyanga was administered

It is very easy for the body to develop back pain, but it is our ignorance that can make it chronic back pain. It is advisable to take immediate action once you develop acute back pain either by rest, heat and cold therapy or massage etc. Acute low back pain lasts anywhere between a couple of days to a few weeks, while back pain is declared chronic when the pain lasts longer than three months.
