Ayurvedic Treatment for Intervertebral Disc Prolapse
A prolapsed intervertebral disc is also known as slipped disc. A bulging out of the inner part of the disc is what happens in this condition. It’s a condition affecting the spine in which there is a tear in the outer fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc which allows the soft central portion to bulge.
Numbness, parasthesia and weakness.
Radiating pain as in Sciatica
According to Ayurveda, the problem of an intervertebral disc prolapse occurs at three levels. Mamsa dhatu, asthi dhatu, and majja dhatu, are the three different tissue levels. Mamsa is the muscles; asthi represents bones, while majja denotes everything which is in the bones.
Mamsa starts stiffness due to dryness, asthi becomes affected due to the muscles, and majja gets compressed due to the pressure effects. Due to the increased ruksha guna , the purpose of treatment is to reduce the dryness and restore the sneha guna, elasticity and also to rehydrate the disc.
