Cervical Spondylosis :
Cervical spondylosis is a common degenerative condition of the cervical spine that most likely is caused by age-related changes in the intervertebral disks. Clinically, several syndromes, both overlapping and distinct, are seen: neck and shoulder pain, suboccipital pain and headache, radicular symptoms, and cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). As disk degeneration occurs, mechanical stresses result in osteophytic bars, which form along the ventral aspect of the spinal canal.
Frequently, associated degenerative changes in the facet joints, hypertrophy of the ligamentum flavum, and ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament occur. All can contribute to impingement on pain-sensitive structures (nerves and spinal cord), thus creating various clinical syndromes. Spondylotic changes often are observed in the aging population. However, only a small percentage of patients with radiographic evidence of cervical spondylosis are symptomatic.
Lumbar Spondylosis :
Lumbar Spondylosis describes bony overgrowths (osteophytes), predominantly those at the anterior, lateral, and, less commonly, posterior aspects of the superior and inferior margins of vertebral centra (bodies). This dynamic process increases with, and is perhaps an inevitable concomitant of age.
Lumbar spondylosis usually produces no symptoms. When back or sciatic pains are complaints, lumbar spondylosis usually is an unrelated finding.
Spondylolysis stress fracture in one of the bones (vertebrae) that make up the spinal column is called spondylolysis (spon-dee-low-lye-sis). It usually affects the fifth lumbar vertebra in the lower back, and much less commonly, the fourth lumbar vertebra.If the stress fracture weakens the bone so much that it is unable to maintain its proper position, the vertebra can start to shift out of place. This condition is called spondylolisthesis.
Inter Vertebral Disc :
ProlapseInter Vertebral Disc Prolapse commonly caused due to over strain, weakness of spinal muscles, due to technically incorrect exertion and exercises and some pathological conditions.
Rheumatic Disorders :
The words 'rheumatism' and 'the rheumatic diseases' are still sometimes used in order to describe a whole range of different conditions which affect the muscles, tendons, joint tissues and other non-joint tissues of the body. The one thing that all these disorders have in common is that they cause pain!
Polymyalgia Rheumatica – In this disorder there is pain and stiffness in a lot of different muscles, especially those around the shoulders. It affects mainly the elderly.
Tenosynovitis – This is an inflammation of the sheathes of the tendons – they are the cord-like structures in the wrist and elsewhere, which many older people call 'leaders'. Injections and manipulation may help.
Capsulitis – This is an inflammation of the capsule (the covering) of the joint, often the shoulder.
Bursitis – This is an inflammation caused by friction between soft tissues and underlying bone.
Allergic Disorders :
The respiratory allergy is the form which is found more and which might lead to Allergic Asthma. In such cases low immunity leads to recurrent respiratory infections and to fatal condition.
The condition of being significantly overweight. It is usually applied to a condition of 30 percent or more over ideal body weight. Obesity puts a strain on the heart and can increase the chance of developing high blood pressure and diabetes.
Psoriasis is a chronic scaling disease of the skin. It may range from just a few spots anywhere on the body to large areas of involvement. It is not contagious or spreadable from one part of the body to another or from one person to another.
There is no blood test for psoriasis. The diagnosis is made by observation and examination of the skin. Sometimes microscopic examination of the skin (biopsy) is helpful where the changes are not typical or characteristic.
The exact cause of psoriasis is unknown, but hereditary and genetic factors are important. Psoriasis runs in families. This does not mean, however, that every child of a parent with psoriasis will develop psoriasis, but it is common that somewhere down the line psoriasis will appear in families. Psoriasis is not caused by allergies, infections, dietary deficiencies or excesses, or nervous tension.
Psoriasis does not affect the overall general health. If it is widespread it can certainly cause a great deal of skin discomfort and emotional embarrassment, and can affect job and leisure time activities. Fortunately most people who have psoriasis only have a small amount and while it certainly can be a nuisance, it does not alter the lifestyle.
In about 10 percent of people with psoriasis there can develop a form of arthritis called psoriatic arthritis. It will take proper medical examination to confirm this diagnosis. Although not always, psoriatic arthritis is more often seen in people with widespread psoriasis than those who have a small amount. The psoriatic arthritis can affect people of all ages
Post Natal Care :
Ayurveda suggests some special medication and therapies after dchild birth to maintain body strength and to bring back the normal condition of abdomen and internal organs.
Osteoporosis is the most common type of bone disease characterized by reduced bone mass, and increase risk of fracture. It is clinically proved in our experience, that patients underwent Ayurvedic treatment for osteoporosis have increased their bone mineral density considerably. Patients at the age of 40-60 years and with a moderate degree of osteoporosis got upto 90% result. Patients aged above 60-70 with moderate osteoporosis got upto 70% result. According to Ayurveda osteoporosis can be compared with srothodushti of Asthidhatu caused by vatakshaya. Srothodushti is nothing but improper transmission of nutrients between the tissues i.e., bone tissues. In Ayurveda it can be managed effectively.
Multiple Sclerosis :
Persons affected with Multiple Sclerosis may experience a wild variety of symptoms such as Vision Loss, Diplopia, Nystagmus, speech difficulties, various kinds of tremors, weakness, spasticity, numbness, as well as sexual dysfunctioning, loss of short term memory, depression, fatigue. According to Ayurveda movement is considered to be the property of vata dosha and there is any delay or dysfunction in the movement neurological deficit is vata dosha involved.
This vitiation of vata may due to any other doshas.In Multiple Scelorsis the line of treatment will be to reduce the inflammation of the brain cells first and then to nourish them. Treatment includes Rookshasweda , Udvarthanam (Powder Massage), Elakkizhi, Njavarakizhi, Shirodharam,Thalam, Shirovasti, virechanam, nasyam, vasti etc selected accordingly.
Internal medicines include which reduce the inflammation of the central nervous system and also it nourishes the Central nervous system. This includes medicated ghee and other forms of medicines selected accordingly.
Arthritis includes Rheumatoid Arthritis and psoriatic Arthritis, which are autoimmune diseases, septic arthritis, caused by joint infection, and more common osteo arthritis and degenerative joint diseases. Arthritis can be caused from strains and injuries caused by repetitive motion , sports, over exertion and falls .In ayurveda, Arthritis can be compared with all inflammatory conditions of the joint. In this mainly involved is vata dosha along with this it vitiates other doshas as well as dhatus and causes diseases.
Osteo Arthritis :
KneeOsteoarthritis (OA) also known as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease, is a group of mechanical abnormalities involving degradation of joints including articular cartilage and subchondral bone. Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion. A variety of causes—hereditary, developmental, metabolic, and mechanical—may initiate processes leading to loss of cartilage. When bone surfaces become less well protected by cartilage, bone may be exposed and damaged. As a result of decreased movement secondary to pain, regional muscles may atrophy, and ligaments may become more lax.
Spine Related Disorders
Sports Injuries :
Sports injuries are injuries that occur to athletes participating in sporting events. In many cases, these types of injuries are due to overuse of a part of the body when participating in a certain activity. For example, runner's knee is a painful condition generally associated with running, while tennis elbow is a form of repetitive stress injury at the elbow, although it does not often occur with tennis players. Other types of injuries can be caused by a hard contact with something. This can often cause a broken bone or torn ligament or tendon.
Respiratory Allergic Disorders:
Respiratory Allergic Disorders - Hay fever ( allergic rhinitis ) and asthma are two very common allergic diseases of the respiratory tract. The two have much in common as to age at onset, seasonal manifestations, and causation. Hay fever involves the mucosa , or lining, of the upper respiratory tract only, whereas asthma is confined to the bronchial tubes of the lower respiratory tract.
Degenerative Disorders :
Degenerative disease, also called neurodegenerative disease, is a disease in which the function or structure of the affected tissues or organs will progressively deteriorate over time, whether due to normal bodily wear or lifestyle choices such as exercise or eating habits. Some Examples of Degenerative Diseases Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's Disease, Multiple system atrophy, Atherosclerosis etc.,
Musculo Skeletal Disorders :
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) can affect the body's muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Most work-related MSDs develop over time and are caused either by the work itself or by the employees' working environment. They can also result from fractures sustained in an accident. Typically, MSDs affect the back, neck, shoulders and upper limbs; less often they affect the lower limbs.
