Sciatica is a condition that occurs because of a trapped nerve or a pinched nerve, most commonly attributed to disc herniation. It is still not known why some people are more prone to sciatica than others. Though medical science does not have these answers, Ayurveda certainly knows why these happens. Some people are known to have ‘Vata Dosha’, a condition in which the ‘vayuu’ or air element of your system is aggravated and the balance of the other elements is lost. This may result in gastritis, arthritis, paralysis, lower back pain, neuralgia and even sciatica. Such people usually have low body weight with cold and dry skin and their frame is usually thinner.
Known as ‘gridhrasi’ in Ayurveda, sciatica can also occur because of poo posture, sprain or tearing of the supportive ligaments of the back. In case you are suffering from constipation or if the weather is cold, you will suffer because of these problems more than usual. In such a case, you must definitely be getting your pain killers and other required medications from your doctor as soon as possible. Then, you must consult an Ayurveda expert to provide you a completely natural complementary treatment with the help of massage and natural herbs. If sciatica is not caused by any kind of medical condition, then it can easily be treated within a month.
