In conventional science, spondylitis is treatable to an extent of providing symptomatic relief but not permanently curable, now since spondylitis is inflammation of the joints in the spine the treatment is isolated to that part only.
According to Ayurveda spondylitis is due to an imbalance of tridoshas, hence a holistic approach is followed which targets the whole body.
The modern lifestyle like consumption of excessive amounts of dry foods like bread, barley etc, avoiding intake of good fat, lack of exercise, improper sleeping timings and duration, leads to not only Spondylitis but many others diseases.
So to treat spondylitis, the first step taken is to avoid the causative factors by educating the patient on do’s and don’ts about a good lifestyle via a consultation. Based on the patient’s profile, medication, panchakarma, yoga and diet routines are prescribed.
This article is about another modern world disease which has plagued youth and elders alike. We are talking about a disease of the spine known as Spondylitis. Your spine is made up of bones called vertebrae, there is a cushioning component between each vertebra called disks. As we age over the period of time the spine joints and disks get worn out or inflamed from overuse or the ageing process.
This inflammation of the joints between the vertebrae is known as Spondylitis or simply said it is a type of arthritis that affects the spine. All types of spondylitis disease have a few things in common. Ankylosing spondylitis is the most common type.
Usually spondylitis used to be diagnosed at old age, but the computer and mobile age has increased the habit of sitting for long durations mostly with wrong posture, the focus towards exercise has reduced too, both factors increase chances of Spondylitis.
Doctors are unsure of specific causes of spondylitis. Environmental factors and genetics play a large role though. Certain genes have been identified that increase a person’s risk of developing spondylitis.
