Sciatica (Gridhrasi) refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve. It is caused due to the compression of the nerve. The pain starts from lower back through the hips and buttocks and travels down to leg. Normally, sciatica affects our one side of the body.
Our vertebrae bones are cushioned by flat, flexible, round disks of connective tissue. When this disk gets worn down because of injury or years of use, its soft center begin to push out from the hard outer ring. When a disk herniates, it might put pressure on the nerves around it.
The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body. It starts in your lower back and splits to run through your hips, buttocks, legs, and feet on both sides.
At Ayulife, we have cured Sciatica purely based on the ancient Ayurveda know how, which explains the disease occurs due to imbalance in Vata dosha.
Normally Vata aggravates due to wrong food habits or if our bowel is not cleaned properly . It could be either due to multiple motions or constipation.
To balance the Vata Dosha , Kashya Basti and Sneha Basti is given to clean the bowel.
Once the Vata dosha is controlled , we strengthen the affected portion with Snehan, Swedan. Even some times Potli Massage and Kati Basti is provided on the affected portion.
