The growing incidence of bone and muscle weakness among people has led more and more patients to get help from Ayurveda for back pain. According to Ayurveda the main reason behind back pain is due to poor posture habits and studies show that this is mostly increasing among the youngsters. Sedentary work culture in the offices and diminishing amount of physical exercises in the offices have led to increasing strain on the back and growing number of back pain patients. Most of the times the sufferer tries a dosage of pain killer or applies a topical ointment and gets a temporary relief and at times with some amount of rest the pain vanishes. But, the next time there is a strain on the back the pain returns and this is because of lack of adequate strength in the bones and muscles and this has come to this stage over time. Conventional therapy for back pain involves medicines, steroidal or non-steroidal injections and for more unresolvable cases traction with weights. Occasionally a physical injury or trauma may be the cause of the pain or an underlying deep seated problem that has not yet surfaced or even when the mind is experiencing excessive tension and stress the body responds to this in the form of back pain. Therefore, it is crucial that the main reason causing the pain must be identified. This is first done when a patient seeks ayurvedic medical care and following this the body is cleansed of impurities and appropriate treatment then begins.
