Low back pain (LBP) is one of the most prevalent musculoskeletal conditions characterized by persistent dull ache, stiffness, and burning, stabbing sensation.
Lower back Pain affects people of all ages in Australia, and chronic conditions may have dire effects on a person's livelihood due to loss of mobility and dependence on daily activities, if the pain is severe.
Body pain in Ayurveda
In Ayurveda, the different types of pain that people feel are associated with vata dosha, which specifically affects bone metabolism as well as the area of the hips and pelvis. Since vata is instrumental in facilitating body movement, any impediment in flow leads to pain syndromes.
Herbal remedies for low back pain
Ayurveda practitioners utilize especially formulated herbal remedies for Lower back pain. A number of locally sourced unique herbs are included in the formulation, including boswella serrata, Commiphora wightii (guggul), and Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha).
Herbal medication relieves pain so that the sufferer can perform other therapeutic activities such as muscle strengthening and put an end to the vicious pain cycle.
Special methods to relieve pain
One of the most effective methods of relieving pain is Ayurvedic massage. The finger techniques used by skilled massage therapists, combined with special oils offer immediate relief to persons with chronic back pain.
Regular massage also alleviates stiffness of the spine and increases flexibility. Another guaranteed method for relief is Kati basti. It is a bathing procedure involving the use of herbal formulations and medicated oils.
Best results are achieved when these procedures are combined with changes in the person's diet and lifestyle.
