Back pain treatment
Back pain Treatment is a common problem among men and women. Low back pain treatment is a common search among the joint and spine patients. Back pain comes as a symptom or complication of spine disease like PIVD/IVDP (Prolapsed Intervertebral Disc), lumber spondylitis, spondylolysthesis (slip disc), lumbago sciatica, cervical spondilitis etc. There are some pathogenesis like cyst, tumor, tuberculosis, cancer, deposition of osteophytes, spondylo arthritis (ankylosing spondylitis) etc which cause back pain.
In the above mentioned diseases the spine gets degenerated. Sometimes one vertebra descends over the lower vertebra causing the reduction of inter vertebral disc space. As a result the disc gets prolapsed. It causes spinal canal stenosis or spinal canal constriction. It affects the normal physiology or function of the spinal cord.
We can take an example of lower back pain. There are bilateral exiting nerves at Inter vertebral space of lumbar spine. These nerves combine together to form the sciatica nerve. When the bilateral exiting nerves get compressed in between the vertebrae it affects the normal function of the sciatica nerve. That causes pain, stiffness, tenderness, tingling pain, numbness, burning sensation in the hip, thigh, lower leg, and foot. Sometimes the sciatica nerve itself gets compressed in the sciatica notch. It also causes the above mentioned symptoms like stretching pain, stiffness and numbness in the leg.
The same situation may take place at the cervical spine level. It causes neck pain, shoulder pain, upper and middle back stiffness etc. The neck pain may radiate to the hand causing tingling sensation. Hot water sponging and exercise may relieve the neck pain for a short period. Gradually its become chronic. Among all Ayurvedic treatment is supposed to be the best non-invasive treatment for neck pain.
The inter-vertebral disc compression may take place as a result of impulsive trauma due to a fall or a road traffic accident. Otherwise the compression occurs as a result of overuse and wear and tear of the lumbar area. It is mostly seam among housewives, carpenters, traffic police, farmers etc.
