Ageing is the natural process of living. The liquid and protein content of the cartilage of the body shifts as we age. This change results in shorter, more fragile, and thin cartilage. Because both the discs and the joints that heap the vertebrae of the spine are partly composed of cartilage, these areas are subjected to wear and tear over time (degenerative changes). The gradual deterioration of the disc between the vertebrae referred to as "Degenerative Disc Disease." Damage of the facet cartilage and the structural changes of the adjacent joint referred to as degenerative facet joint disorder or osteoarthritis of the spine.
Degeneration of the disc medically referred to as "Spondylosis." Spondylosis can record on X-Ray tests or MRI scanning of the spine as a narrowing of the usual "disc space" between the adjacent vertebrae.
Degeneration of the disc tissue makes the disc more sensitive to 'herniation' and can produce local pain in the affected area. Any level of the vertebrae can be affected by disc degeneration. When disc degeneration affects the spine of the neck, it referred to as "Cervical Disc Disease." When the mid-back is changed, the condition referred to as "Thoracic Disc Disease." Disc degeneration that affects the lumbar spine seen as "Lumbar Disc Disease or Lumbago." Lumbago produces pain localized to the low back and is common in older people.
In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems may have prescribed pain killers/medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physiotherapy, received steroidal shots or injections, and when they weren't progressing, they suggest spinal surgery. Only 5% of back pains require surgeries, and the other 95% can deal with conservative & curative Ayurveda panchakarma chikitsa & rejuvenation procedures.
Today, you may not have to live with discomfort any more. Meru chikitsa (Ayurveda neuro therapy) facilitates patients to return to more active lifestyles. Marma chikitsa, along with Vatahara chikitsa and Brumhana chikitsa given utmost importance.
