The spinal cord is one of the most important parts of a human nervous system that caters to form the main structure that is a complex formation of muscles, nerves, ligaments, and bones. Any malfunctioning occurring at any of these points, the entire spinal cord comes into the problem.

It is the vertebrate that supports all the routine functioning like walking, sitting, and standing, and running. There are situations and circumstances when the vertebrae of the spinal cord get misaligned to starts to degenerate. Under the scenario, the structure of the spine changes leading to many spinal disorders. The best way to cure the same is through Ayurveda.

Ayurvedic treatment for spine problems comes first and foremost by creating a perfect balance between the three doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The best way to do so is through dosha specific diet and panchakarma treatment that collaboratively restores the lost balance and strives to maintain the inner harmony of the human body.

First, let us talk about the dietary changes that play an integral role in curing all sorts of spine disorders. Many Ayurvedic doctors whether you looking for back pain treatment or neck pain treatment in Nagpur and other cities, the top Ayurvedic doctors prescribe the following food options as a perfect resort for spinal disorders:

  • Dark Green Leafy Vegetables rich in folate and magnesium that promote nerves health and in turn provides oxygen to nerves and muscles.
  • Berries serve as an antioxidant that works to protect body cells from various toxins.
  • Orange Vegetables like pumpkin, carrot, and sweet potato rich in Vitamin A with the presence of b-carotene work to protect the human body against oxidative stress and neuro-inflammation.
  • Dairy products like milk, curd, yogurt, and cheese rich in calcium promote optimum nerve functioning while ensuring the healthy formation of bones.

Now, let us discuss the panchakarma treatment. Whether Ayurvedic treatment for slip disc, Ayurvedic treatment for scoliosis, or any other disorder, Panchkarma through the following stages work wonders:

  • Kati Vasti: This is a popular Ayurvedic procedure for back problems like lumbar spondylitis, sciatica, vertebral disc prolapses, and lumbago. The process involves pouring of warm herbal oil within the black gram paste well placed on your back region and then changing the oil at regular intervals for a pre-defined period of time.
  • Vasti: Vasti is a therapy that works to relax the Vata specific spinal disorders while removing toxins from the body through enema.
  • Meru Chikitsa: This is a special Ayurvedic procedure exclusively done to cure spinal disorders. ‘Meru’ means ‘Spine’ and ‘Chikitsa’ means ‘Treatment’ and hence combining the words, the therapy works to cure all sorts of disc problems through a natural healing mechanism.
  • Lepanam: Lepana though is not completely beneficial in curing spinal problems but certainly does wonders to alleviate pain in case of any inflammation in the back or neck region. The therapy involves the use of herbal medicated paste that is externally applied to the back and neck region.
