If you or a loved one is suffering from slip disc, prolapsed disc, or herniated disc, ayurvedic panchakarma treatment can be an effective way to treat your condition. This form of traditional Indian medicine has been in use for hundreds of years and has been proven to be effective and safe. Amongst other benefits, it also helps in avoiding surgery.
Symptoms of Slipped Disc
The symptoms of slipped discs include a sensation of discomfort in the neck and arms and shoulder pain. You will also have numbness in the upper arm. But it is back pain that is the primary symptom and it can become worse at night-time. Muscle weakness during night-time and burning pain are other sensations. And when the condition has entered advanced stages, it can also hinder your ability to walk.
What is Slipped Disc?
When the inner portion of the disc herniates to the outer portion because of injury or weakness, the condition is known as herniated or slipped disc. It can also cause compression of the nerves in the spine. This causes pain and numbness along all the areas which are connected to that nerve. The different stages of disc prolapsed are as follows:
• Disc dehydration
• Disc prolapse
• Disc extrusion
• Disc sequestration
There are many causes of slip disc. This includes ageing, obesity, smoking, and engaging in physically demanding work. Conventional treatment options include medication and a wide range of therapies. However, Ayurvedic focuses on addressing the root cause and not just the symptoms.
Ayurvedic Treatment: Complete Cure
Ayurvedic back pain treatment is a tangible alternative to conventional treatment therapies for slipped discs. In this traditional medicine, the condition is considered to be caused due to certain imbalances in the body. So the treatment is focused on addressing these imbalances and restoring strength and basic function to the body. It also addresses weaknesses in different body areas.
Some of the important aspects of the treatment option are as follows:
• Ayurvedic medications include herbal oils, decoctions, and capsules or tablets
• If you suffer from chronic pain, you will be required to undertake ayurvedic panchakarma treatment featuring a variety of therapies
• The medications and decoctions are focused on addressing mild to moderate pain and the symptoms of slipped disc
• Abhyanga therapy may be used involving the application of medicated oils
• The practitioner may also use the shodana therapy that focuses on detoxification
All these therapies are used for healing the nerves and the underlying cause. They help in alleviating the symptoms of herniated or prolapsed disc and also provide relief from muscular spasms.
