Spinal disorders are a group of conditions that involve a loss of normal structure and function of spine. These are mainly due to:
The increased pressure on spinal cord associated with spinal degeneration may cause disc displacement or herniation, spinal stenosis, narrowing of spinal canal, osteoarthritis, cartilage break up and many other complications.
The disc between the bones of the spine is made up of cartilage, fibrous tissue, and water. With age these discs can weaken and may flatten, bulge, break down, or herniate.
Spinal stenosis, or narrowing of the spinal canal, is a condition potentially more serious than degenerative disc disease. As the spinal canal tightens, the spine and nerves may be significantly compressed and irritated, causing both back pain and pain that radiates to other parts of the body, depending on the location of the pressure on the nerves.
The primary symptoms of degenerative spinal disorders are sharp and/or chronic pain, weakness, limited motion, and sensory loss. If spinal degeneration leads to compression or injury of the spinal cord, weakness and limited motion may increase significantly. Loss of bladder and bowel function and problems with sexual function also may occur as the problem worsens. The specific symptoms often depend on the location of the structural problem in the spine.
Ayurvedic Treatments For Spinal Disorders
DEGENERATION is a process mainly due to ageing and in ayurveda vata is the dosha mainly dominant during old age and 90% of degenerative disorders are due to vitiated vata dosha.
Degeneration can occur due to wear and tear. In Ayurveda, these are mainly called abhighata which will be leading to a disease condition. Sometimes the pathology of degeneration will be genetic or any infection (aganthu), this will be affecting individual systems and causing disease.
In degenerative spine disorders, most of the diseases are due to disc degeneration, prolapse, bulging, dehydration, bony changes; these are mainly due to different doshic imbalance. In most of the disorders bone is involved with soft tissues like cartilage and nerves, leading to a vata predominant disorder as these are mainly the seats of vata, depending upon the causative factor the level of doshic imbalance vary and the treatment approach will be different.
