Ayurveda Tips To Manage Cervical Radiculopathy

Lifestyle-related diseases have become more prevalent recently. People no longer have time to do manual work; instead, they spend their days shackled to desks, slumped over phones or computers. Our skeletal structure was not designed to support such unhealthy positions maintained for lengthy periods of time. People of all ages are affected by degenerative illnesses of the joints, bones, and skin as a result.

The fact that a variety of musculoskeletal-related problems are now very common should not come as a surprise. Degenerative diseases, which used to primarily affect older people, are now more commonly affecting peoples in their early and middle years. Cervical Radiculopathy is an example of a spinal condition that typically affects adults over thirty.

Cervical Radiculopathy is a common degenerative condition that develops as a result of deterioration in the cushion between the neck joints and the neck bone over time. Neck movements become more difficult as disc degeneration worsens. Affected vertebral margins and other lesions increase the strain on nerves coming from the cervical vertebrae.

What Ayurvedic Treatments are Available to Treat Radiculopathy

Cervical Radiculopathy is considered a vata condition in Ayurvedic medicine. As we get older, vata is thought to develop and cause the body's tissues to deteriorate. Ayurvedic treatments for Cervical Radiculopathy may not be able to entirely reverse the degenerative processes, but natural medications and massage oils can assist to lessen pain.

  • Abhyangam:
  • Abhyangam is a full-body (from head to toe) herbal oil massage that is used for therapeutic purposes. Applying oil to the joints lubricates them and tones the muscles that support the spine.

  • Elakizhi
  • The procedure uses leaves that are fried in a herbal oil and wrapped to a linen cloth to create the potli. These potlis, which are organic herbal substances, are used in the massage, and they are renowned for being quite powerful. Elakizhi is typically thought of as a component of Panchakarma therapy. The thick bag is made from the plant's leaves, which are claimed to have vata-optimising qualities (bolus) which can reduce the effects of Cervical Radiculopathy.

  • Sarvangadhara
  • Warm medicinal oil is sFystematically massaged over the entire body when the patient is lying on a Droni in Sarvangadhara (Ayurvedic therapy table). Four practitioners simultaneously pour the oil onto the patient from head to toe using kindis, or brass spouted pitchers. The oil is periodically refilled by one attendant.

  • Shirodhara
  • Shirodhara is the practice of continuously drizzling herbal oil over the forehead in order to induce profound relaxation and total serenity. A head massage that concentrates on marma points and restores sensory balance is given after the surgery. Shirodhara delivers relief from Cervical Radiculopathy and is an effective treatment.
