Joint, neck and back pains are the bane of modern living…
Poor posture, lack of exercise, improper nutrition, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, high blood pressure are the factors causing joint pain, neck pain and back pain. These ailments are known by names like osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, cervical spondylosis, lumbar spondylosis, sciatica, frozen shoulder etc. The common complaint is pain experienced while getting-up and sitting-down, during walking etc.
Many people consume over-the-counter pain killers but these may further damage the joint condition. In addition, long-term use of pain killers is known to damage the stomach, liver and kidneys. Hence, it is advisable to manage joint pains and arthritis through Ayurveda.
How does Ayurveda help in relieving these pains?
The ancient Indian medical science of Ayurveda uses natural herbs to work on the root cause causing the disease. Ayurveda believes that root cause of pain in joints and muscles is an excess of ‘Vata’ with means an excess of air movement in the body. The excess vata dries up the channels as well as degenerates bones and tissue. The result is stiffness, inflammation and pain in joints.
Ayurvedic medicines and treatments use natural herbs to clear the blockages caused by excess vata in bones, joints and muscles. This reduces stiffness and swelling from knee joint, neck, shoulder, lower back and improves flexibility. The direct result is that pain diminishes, the affected person’s lifestyle improves and he/she is able to carry out day-to-day activities comfortably.
