Lumbar Spondylosis Ayurvedic Treatment

Lumbar spondylosis Ayurvedic treatment is beneficial to the body and it not only involves the Ayurvedic medicines but also the herbs, dietary/lifestyle changes, and yoga. Lumbar spondylosis is a term that simply refers to some degeneration in the spine, lumbar vertebrae, cartilage, muscles, and bones involved in the lumbar area. It is commonly referred to as spine arthritis. It is a chronic and inflammatory disease and is progressive with age and irreversible in elderly patients. As the bodies age, the intervertebral disc starts losing fluid that leads to collapse in disc height and other degenerative changes like ligaments becoming thickened and stiff. The location of degenerative changes is facet joints, intervertebral disc, and sacroiliac joint, nerve, and muscles around Lumbar Vertebrae. It occurs as a result of new bone formation in an area where the annular ligament is stressed and growth of new bone in form of Osteophytes is seen anteriorly or literally.

These Osteophytes cause back pain which increases with the age of a person. This pain is seen in 15-45% of the total population. Some bear acute lower back pain and others face chronic low back pain, pain that persists beyond 3 months. Some people develop lumbar spondylosis even at an earlier age, due to certain risk factors like history of trauma, history of smoking, genetic predisposition, or occupation factor of hard labor. Ayurvedic medicines for lumbar spondylosis have effective results that too without any surgery performed of the spine.

  • Hereditary-Genetic factors likely influence the formation of Osteophytes and disc degeneration.
  • Herniated or Bulging Disc-Disk acts as a cushion in between the vertebrae in the spine. Due to wear and tear, the soft cushion gets shrunken thus causing pain.
