Sciatica  (Called Gridhrasi in Ayurveda ) refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve which is caused due to disk prolapse in L4 L5 discs and this disk prolapse compresses 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.

Symptoms of Sciatica:
  1. Weakness, Pain & Numbness in leg
  2. Burning or tingling sensation down the leg
  3. Inability to move the leg.
Causes of Sciatica Pain:
  1. Modern life Style problems like sitting for long hours
  2. Excessive Gym 
  3. Absence of Ghee in Diet increases Vata and aggravates Pain.
  4. Constipation
  5. Wrong Sitting Posture.
Ayurveda Treatment to Sciatica in Ayulife: 

As per Ayurveda, Sciatica is caused due to Vata dosha. Normally Vata aggravates due to wrong food habits or if our bowel is not cleaned properly due to chronic constipation etc. When Vata increases excessively, the muscle stiffness develops. This puts pressure on the Vertebrates and causes slip disk. This prolapsed disk presses the sciatica nerve.

At Ayulife we focus to balance Vata dosha by Panchkarma Therapies like Kashya Basti and Sneha Basti.

Once the Vata dosha is controlled in Ayurveda Panchkarma Procedures, we strengthen the affected portion with

Shodhan Chikitsa : Snehan, Swedan. Even some times Potli Massage and Kati Basti is provided on the affected portion. 

Shaman Chikitsa : Herbal Medication to strengthen the affected portion.
