Ayurvedic treatment for slip disc in Trivandrum, Kerala

Slip disc is a condition in which disc in between the two vertebral bodies becomes weak or torn and allows the inner portion to slip out. These discs are just like the bags filled with liquid material, which work like shock-absorbent. 
Where modern medical (Surgical) sciences believes that this is a problem of just bones and joints of the vertebral disc besides this Ayurveda takes a Complete and wholesome approach towards this and tells that this is a problem at three levels-
Mamsa Dhatu, Asthi Dhatu, Majja Dhatu!!
These are different tissue levels according to Ayurveda- Mamsa is muscles, Asthi represents bones and the Majja denotes everything which is in between and in the bones. Mamsa (the muscles) starts stiffening due to the dryness – improper diet and imbalanced lifestyle and deteriorate the curvature of the spine- which leads to the deterioration of the intervertebal discs.
Before we go and look for the treatment of the slip disc (at any region) of the spine, we need to be sure that why discs slip -

Why Does Disc Slip ? 

A slipped disk occurs when the outer ring becomes weak or torn and allows the inner portion to slip out. This can happen with age. Certain motions may also cause a slipped disk. A disk can slip out of place while you are twisting or turning to lift an object. Lifting a very large, heavy object can place great strain on the lower back, resulting in a slipped disk. If you have a very physically demanding job that requires a lot of lifting, you may be at increased risk for slipped disks. Overweight individuals are also at increased risk for a slipped disk because their disks must support the additional weight. Weak muscles and a sedentary lifestyle may also contribute to development of a slipped disk. People who are 35 to 45 years old are more likely to have a slipped disk. This is because your disks begin to lose some of their protective water content as you age. As a result, they can slip more easily out of place. They are more common in men than women.
