Ayurveda prescribes many treatments for various medical conditions such as rheumatism, respiratory problems, blood pressure, cholesterol, paralysis etc. This system of medicine is special in that it makes use of only natural ingredients and as a result are totally harmless and at the same time highly curative. Some of the treatments offered at Panchagni Ayurvedic Center are as follows:
Arthritis & Rheumatic Diseases (Joint Pain)
“Arthritis” literally mean joint inflammation. Although joint inflammation is a symptom or sign rather than a specific diagnosis. The term Arthritis is often used to refer to any disorder that affect the joints. These disorders fall within the broader category of Rheumatic disorders. There are diseases characterised by inflammation of one or more connecting or supporting structures of the body. They especially effect joints, tendons, ligaments, bones and muscles common signs and symptoms are pain, swelling and stiffness. Some rheumatic diseases also can involve internal organs.Based on the findings of the history and physical examination the doctor may order laboratory tests and x-ray or other imaging tests to help confirm a diagnosis. Sample of blood, urine or synovial fluid (lubricating fluid found in the joint) may be needed for the lab tests.
Cervical Spondylosis ( Neck Pain )
Cervical spondylosis is a common degenerative condition of the cervical spine that most likely caused by age-related changes in the intervertebral disks. This includes the disks or cushions between the neck vertebrae and the joints between the bones of the cervical spine. These changes can compress one or more of the nerve roots. In advanced cases, the spinal cord becomes involved. People who are very active at work or in sports may be more likely to have this. The major risk factor is aging. Other factors are overweight, heavy lifting or a lot of bending and twisting, Past neck injury, Past spine surgery, Ruptured or slipped disk, Severe arthritis, Small fractures to the spine from osteoporosis. Symptoms often develop slowly over time, but they may start or get worse suddenly. Pain may spread to the upper arm, forearm, or fingers.
Lumbar Spondylosis refers to a collection of degenerative disorders that can lead to low back pain as people age. The main causes are Internal disc disruption, Degenerative disc disease and Segmental instability. The intervertebral disc is made up mostly of water. This allows it to maintain its cushion-like properties. As people age, the intervertebral disc loses some of its water content. As this happens, the outer layers of the disc are more likely to develop cracks or tears. These can be a significant source of low back pain. This is the beginning of internal disc disruption. When the outer layer of the disc cracks, the disc looses its normal water content. This reduces its ability to act as a cushion for the loads applied to the spine. Symptoms include chronic low back pain which is often made worse with sitting or bending forward. Pain is persistent and lasts longer than six weeks.
Multiple Sclerosis Management
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body that is it affects the brain and spinal cord. Early MS symptoms include weakness, tingling, numbness, and blurred vision. Other signs are muscle stiffness, thinking problems, and urinary problems.Thus diagnostic criteria was formulated as "Charcot Triad", consisting in nystagmus, intention tremor, and telegraphic speech (scanning speech) While the cause is not clear, the underlying mechanism is thought to be either destruction by the immune system or failure of the myelin-producing cells. Proposed causes for this include genetics and environmental factors such as being triggered by a viral infection. MS is usually diagnosed based on the presenting signs and symptoms and the results of supporting medical test . The McDonald criteria, which focus on clinical, laboratory, and radiologic evidence of lesions at different times and in different areas, is the most commonly used method of diagnosis
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system mainly affecting the motor system. It affects the nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine. Early in the course of the disease, the most obvious symptoms are movement-related; these include shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement and difficulty with walking and gait. Later, thinking and behavioral problems may arise, with dementia commonly occurring in the advanced stages of the disease, and depression being the most common psychiatric symptom. Other symptoms include sensory, sleep, and emotional problems.
Arthritis & Rheumatic Diseases
Arthritis is a condition in which both inflammative and degenerative lesions of a joint or joints takes places. Arthritis is generally characterized by pain and restriction of movement at a joint, arising spontaneously in superficial joints. These features are usually accompanied by obvious swelling or thickening. There are four common types of arthritis, and several less common or rare varieties of which five will be considered here. Pyogenic arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Juvenile, Chronic , Tuberculous, Psoratic and Osteoarthritis. Other types of arthritis are Gouty arthritis, Haemophilic arthritis, Neuropathic arthritis, Arthritis of Rheumatic fever and Ankylosing spondylitis. We provide Ayurveda treatment for arthritis which is safe, effective and helps to prevent further progression
Generally, obesity is considered more than one-fifth overweight to the normal weight range. Obesity can be defined as excessive enlargement of body's total quantity of fat. There is no biologic reason for men and women to get fatter as they grow older. Therefore the standard for over fatness for adult men and women should probably be established as men above 20% and women above 30% body fat. The location of adipose (fatty) tissue in the body should also be considered, fat distributed in the abdominal region poses a greater health risk compared to fat deposited at the thigh and buttocks.Obesity is an alert labelling of a "Killing disease”. Obesity is implicated most strongly in coronary disease. Overweight also contributes to the development of diabetes, hypertension, and elevated blood lipid levels, kidney and gallbladder disorders.
Sports Injuries includes a wide range of issues from simple spines to spinat co spinal. Ligament injuries, meniscal tear. Ayurveda is very effective remedies that can either be used principally or as a supportive therapy in numerous orthopedic problems encountered by sports persons. Ayurveda has very simple herbal formulations that can speed up the process of healing after a surgery, rehabilitation of an injured muscle, bone, performance levels.
Osteoporosis literally means ‘porous bones’ helpfully describing this condition that results in reduced bone density and increases fragility of the bones. The thinning of bones in osteoporosis, combined with the formation of weaker bone crystals puts people at a higher risk of fractures. Although osteoporosis itself do not directly increase the risk of falls, people who have Osteoporosis have a higher risk of breaking bones if they fall, with common sites of fracture including the hip, spinal vertebra and wrist.Post-menopausal women age most likely to develop the condition, but it also affects men of younger people across all genders. Some risk factors for osteoporosis are modified, such as smoking and poor nutrition.
Spine Related Disorders
The spine, or backbone, is made up of small bones (vertebrae) stacked -- along with discs -- one on top of another. A healthy spine when viewed from the side has gentle curves to it. The curves help the spine absorb stress from body movement and gravity.When viewed from the back, the spine should run straight down the middle of the back. When abnormalities of the spine occur, the natural curvatures of the spine are misaligned or exaggerated in certain areas, as occurs with lordosis, kyphosis, and scoliosis.
