Neck Pain & Back Pain

Inefficient, weak, back muscles are prone to injury.


Muscular Back pain

Inefficient, weak, back muscles are prone to injury. Poor posture when sitting, standing and lifting can place unnecessary stress on your spine. Sports injuries and motor vehicle accidents are very common causes.

Disc Herniation

Inefficient, weak, back muscles are prone to injury. Age-related wear and tear affects the spine in your neck or low back. As the disks dehydrate and shrink, bone spurs and other signs of osteoarthritis develop. Dehydrated disks, herniated discs, bone spurs, and stiff ligaments are the result.

Ankylosing Spondylitis

May include pain and stiffness in your lower back and hips, especially in the morning and after periods of inactivity. People who have a gene HLA-B27 are at increased, and stiff ligaments are the result.


A catching pain starts at the low back and radiates through the buttocks – behind the thighs, knees, and calves and to the ankles and toes. Caused by pinching of nerve roots at the spine by a bulged disc or due to degenerated vertebrae. Vaidyashala Ayurveda Centre offers an extensive list of therapies mentioned below:
