Lower Back Pain Can Cause Serious Discomfort

Why Not Try One of Our Ayurveda treatments?

At Ayurherbs in Melbourne, we have what you’ve been looking for to relieve lower back pain. Our practice is grounded in the principles of Ayurveda, a traditional Indian system of medicine.

Since Ayurveda is based on the idea of balance in bodily systems, it informs every aspect of what we do to ease the discomfort our clients experience.

Symptoms of Lower Back Pain

Although pain itself is typically the primary symptom that something is wrong in the body, it occurs in different places and with varying characteristics. Each type of pain can signal a particular condition — that calls for a specific treatment.

For example, lower back pain can be acute, subacute or chronic, depending on its duration and intensity. It could be dull, achy, stinging, or burning. It could manifest as spasms or tightness, even extending to the pelvis or hips.

Risk Factors for Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain can be caused by anything from poor posture to a pulled muscle or ligament to everyday stress. Some especially common causes of lower back pain are arthritic conditions, which include rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and sciatica.

Treating back pain with over-the-counter pain remedies provides temporary relief at best, and the pain only resurfaces later. Exercise can help, but it sometimes causes additional pain. Why not try our Ayurherbs treatment? We know how to soothe and relax a sore back.

Natural Ayurveda Treatment for Lower Back Pain

Our treatments depend on a person’s body type and any mitigating physical needs or conditions. Some treatments, like massage, treat the pain directly, while others deal with its underlying causes.

Our treatments include:

  • Abhyanga massage allows you to experience the harmony of mind, body and spirit that can only be obtained through its careful release of the muscular tension and negative energies that your body collects day after day.
  • Shirodhara therapy induces a relaxed state of awareness by focusing on the third eye, thereby heightening perception beyond that of ordinary sight. You need only lie on your back and relax while the therapist pours a continuous, gentle stream of warm oil or medicated liquids onto your forehead and along the crown of your head, saturating your hair and scalp.
  • Panchakarma Detox involves an intensive cleansing ritual that begins with natural emetic and laxative treatments to purge the body of toxins. This treatment has beneficial effects such as reducing stress and combating obesity — both of which contribute to lower back pain.
  • Basti/Medicated Enema treats Vata imbalance, which causes dehydration, bloating and other unpleasant symptoms.
  • Potali Sweda is a sweat-inducing treatment using a hot herbal pouch.
  • Kativasti treats back pain through the placement of grains and oils.
  • Njavarakizhi is a rejuvenation massage treatment involving a small linen poultice filled with rice cooked in cow’s milk and an herbal mixture.
