Spine Disorders

Spine disorders refer to a range of conditions that affect the vertebral column, also known as the spine or backbone. The spine is a crucial component of the human skeletal system, providing structural support, flexibility, and protection for the spinal cord. Disorders of the spine can result from various factors, including age-related degeneration, trauma, congenital abnormalities, infections, tumors, or inflammatory diseases.

Common spine disorders include:

1. Degenerative Disc Disease: The gradual wear and tear of intervertebral discs, leading to pain and reduced flexibility.

2. Herniated Disc: A condition where the inner part of a disc protrudes through the outer layer, potentially compressing nearby nerves and causing pain.

3. Spinal Stenosis: Narrowing of the spinal canal, which can put pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, resulting in pain, numbness, or weakness.

4. Scoliosis: Abnormal sideways curvature of the spine, often occurring during growth spurts in adolescence.

5. Kyphosis: Excessive outward curvature of the spine, leading to a rounded back or hunchback appearance.

6. Spondylolisthesis: The displacement of one vertebra over another, typically in the lumbar spine, causing instability and nerve compression.

7. Spinal Fractures: Breaks or cracks in the vertebrae, often caused by trauma or osteoporosis.

8. Spinal Cord Injury: Damage to the spinal cord due to trauma, resulting in a range of neurological deficits.

Diagnosis and treatment of spine disorders involve medical history assessment, physical examinations, imaging studies (such as X-rays, MRI, or CT scans), and may include conservative measures like physical therapy, medications.

Effective management often requires a multidisciplinary approach of Ayurvedic Physician to address the unique aspects of each spine disorder and improve the patient’s overall quality of life.

Here we are discussing some of common problems related with Spine. We will look deep into the disease and it’s management of following diseases. 


Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which is the longest nerve in the human body. The sciatic nerve runs from the lower back, through the hips and buttocks, down each leg, and extends to the feet.

Spondylosis & Disc Diseases

Spondylosis is a broad term used to describe degenerative changes in the spine, particularly in the vertebrae and intervertebral discs. It is a common condition associated with aging and wear and tear on the spine.

Ankylosing Spondylosis

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a type of inflammatory arthritis that primarily affects the spine. It is characterized by inflammation of the joints between the vertebrae, leading to pain, stiffness, and progressive fusion of the spine. This fusion can result in a rigid, immobile spine, a condition commonly referred to as bamboo spine.
