Ayurveda for Back Pain Treatment

Back pain is known as Kateegraham in ayurveda. It is assumed to arise out of vata dosha and imperfect digestion. Toxins in the body can also cause back pain.

Ayurveda addresses back pain in a different way. Patients may be given mahayograja guggul for treatment of spinal issues. If back pain causes weakness in arms and legs then patients should consume ekangveer rasa tablet along with mahayograj guggul for a week. Then they must massage their back with mahamashataila. Mahanarayan oil massage may be given to the patient for 10 days along with steam bath.

Those with back pain usually have vata dosha. If it gets cold their pain increases sosuch patients with vata dosha must stay warm and wear warm clothing in winter. They must also eat warm foods and avoid spicy foods as well as frozen foods.

If you have back pain then it will be beneficial for you to practice padahastasan yoga every day in the morning. This reduces vata dosha and eliminates constipation. After this practise anuloma-viloma for 10 minutes at least.

Those with back pain will find that preparing an infusion of ajwain with jeera and ginger and drinking it regularly will bring relief.
