In Ayurveda, neck and back pain are considered signs of imbalance in the body's Vata dosha. Vata comes from the Sanskrit word "vat," which means "air." Vata is responsible for all movement in the body: circulation, respiration, digestion, and elimination. If Vata becomes unbalanced, it can cause nerves to become sensitive or inflamed, leading to painful muscle spasms or stiffness in joints throughout your body, including your neck or back. You can reduce inflammation by treating your Vata dosha with traditional Ayurvedic remedies such as massage therapy, aromatherapy, and herbal remedies, which will help ease neck pain and back pain caused by an imbalance in Vata doshas within your body!
