One of the most frequently heard requests from people in today's society is for care of the spine and joints. Our obsession with different gadgets is the most evident cause. Our spines and joints are negatively impacted because of our sheer lethargy to live an active lifestyle. With phones and laptops, we frequently have to adopt uncomfortable viewing positions. Therefore, those who spend more time sitting down are more likely to experience ailments like cervical spondylitis. We need to work to keep our joints moving. If not, you will have pain and discomfort as a result of degenerative joint diseases as you age. You will frequently experience joint stiffness, pain that radiates down your arms and shoulders, or tingling in your fingers. Fortunately, Ayurveda is quite good at treating this specific problem, and the outcomes are excellent.
The treatment for back, lower back, neck, and other spinal conditions through Ayurveda depends on the patient’s body proportions and dosas, the severity of the pain, the causative factors, and their medical history. A proper physical examination by a physician is necessary in all cases. The extensive majority of back pains can be attributed to vata aggravation, muscle and bone weakness, and lifestyle imbalances.
The effectiveness of Ayurvedic remedies for joint and spine disorders is widely accepted, and modern medical textbooks even include them. This group includes degenerative joint disorders, repetitive stress injuries to the joints (RSI), spondylitis, and disc prolapsed conditions. Autoimmune joint illnesses in this group include rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, seronegative arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
