Pain in the lower back is not exactly a disease. Anyone can experience it during their lifetime. It can happen due to an injury or any other reason. In most cases, lower back pain episodes are resolved easily. The problem is when they become chronic and a person experiences back pain regularly. This can affect the quality of life of a person. While it is believed that lower back pain is experienced more by elderly people, it can be seen in people of all ages. Almost three quarters of people will expect a lower back pain episode sometime in their life. This increases with age, as the disc in the back suffers wear and tear. The pain may be confined to the back or may even spread to the legs. Some people experience relief by resting, while others feel comfortable doing regular activities. When pain persists for more than a month, it is called chronic pain. Ayurveda can be very helpful in the treatment of acute and chronic back pain.
Causes of lower back pain
There are many reasons why a person could get lower back pain. These include the following.
Ayurveda’s view of lower back pain
Ayurveda looks at all diseases from the perspective of the Tridosha, namely Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. In Ayurveda pain is linked to Vata. Of the three doshas, Vata is mobile and associated with movement. Imbalance in Vata can cause pain, including back pain. This doesn’t mean that the other two doshas are not involved. The imbalance in Vata can affect Pitta and Kapha causing different kinds of conditions.
There are thus three types of back pain depending on the imbalance of Vata.
In Ayurveda, lower back pain is referred to as Katigraha or Pristhagraha. It is a Vata vyadhi or a disease caused by Vata imbalance. Vatanatmajavyadhi refers to back pain with neurological or muscular causes. Ayurvedic texts have described it as being caused due to Dhatu kshaya, i.e.: degeneration or Margavaran, which is obstruction.
Ayurveda uses both medication and other measures in the treatment of back pain. The ayurvedic medicine for backache is prepared using various taila or oils. Other herbal formulations are also used. These medicines can be helpful in the treatment of back pain. Abhyanga or massage using oil is an important element of lower backache treatment in Ayurveda.
When Vata has affected the lower abdomen, it can then lead to backache. In such a situation, enema or basti chikitsa or a mild laxative medicine may be recommended to cleanse the abdomen and thus help in providing relief from back pain. Some other treatments that Ayurveda prescribes are Pizhichil or use of warm oil on body, Swedana or fomentation, and Avagaha sweda or tub bath.
Apart from these, there are a number of other measures, including lifestyle changes that are prescribed.
- Lumbar Spondylitis
- Low back-ache
- Low back muscular pain
- Low back pain radiating to lower limbs
