Back pain is experienced by all of us at some point in life. In the Ayurvedic treatment for back pain, this problem starts with low agni or poor digestive fire. Due to poor digestion of food, negative toxins called ama develops in areas of the body. This imbalance of the body manifests itself as some form of pain in the body, especially at the joints. A joint pain is the result of disturbance in one of the body humour called vata.
Apart from bio-chemical reasons of back pain, there are physiological problems too. Sleeping in a wrong posture, strain from travelling on bad roads or accidents are some of them. For all these problems, Ayurvedic treatment is very effective. It brings back the balanced state of the body by internal remedies and external procedures too.
