Neuro Spine Rehabilitation Programme

What are Neuro-spine disorders?

Every Fifth Indian Youth is Suffering from Spinal Ailments. Research suggests 60 per cent of Indian population will have a significant episode of spine-related problems at some point of their lifetime.

The Neuro-Spine Disorders include Patients with neurological problems such as:

  • Head/spinal cord injury,
  • Epilepsy,
  • Brain/spine tumors,
  • Trigeminal neuralgia,
  • Migraine
  • Movement disorders, and more
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Chronic back and/or neck pain,
  • Spinal stenosis,
  • Spondylolisthesis,
  • Herniated disc,
  • Spinal deformity
  • Carpel tunnel syndrome,

Why Integrative Management for Spine?

What makes the spine a unique structure….?
Spine problems can arise from

  • Soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments,etc)
  • Nerves
  • Bones/ Vertebra
  • Intervertebral discs

Therefore, majority of neuro-spinal disorders are complex and involve multi-dimensional treatment for restoring optimum functionality.

Neurological Rehabilitation is a complex medical management which aims to help recovery from nervous system injury, and to minimize and/or compensate for any functional deficiencies resulting from it.

With our Innovative new protocols, we have trained more than 120 Doctors in Integrative Neuro-spine treatments.

One needs to understand that Neuro-Spine system, in itself, is a Complex structure of not just bony vertebrae but nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments.

The complex yet dynamic flexibility of the Spine results from the complementary functions of these structures.

Therefore, no single approach will work to completely to treat the Neuro-Spine disorders.

At Sattvam Healthcare, we have designed specialized integrated protocols for Neuro-Spine Disease Management.

A blend of Scientific Ayurveda, Therapeutic Yoga, Muscle Manipulations, Restorative Panchakarma Therapies are the mainstay of the integrative treatment. The treatment protocols are customized by our Doctors as per the patient’s symptoms, occupational needs, lifestyle, and functionality.

SYMPTOMS include:

  • Pain,
  • Stiffness,
  • Loss of Power
  • Tingling Numbnes

are commonest symptoms observed in patients of Neuro-spine problems.

Pain is a complex reaction of the body to an injury and pain can be either acute or chronic.

Acute pain is a pain of sudden onset, lasting for hours to days and disappears once the underlying cause is treated. Examples of acute pain: pain in the abdomen, fracture, muscle sprain, cancer, prolapse of an intervertebral disc.

Chronic pain starts as an acute pain, continues for a longer period and recurs for various other reasons.

In acute pain, attention is focused on treating the cause of pain whereas, in chronic pain, the emphasis is on reducing the pain to give relief, limit disability and improve function.

Back Pain

Eighty percent of people will experience some sort of back pain in their lifetime. Lower back pain is a common cause for visits to the doctor

Low back is called as the Lumbar spine. It includes complex structures e.g. lumbar vertebrae, spinal cord, spinal nerves, nerve roots, inter vertebral discs, muscles, ligaments, tendons, etc. Problems with any of these components can lead to back pain.

Acute back pain can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, while chronic back pain is pain that lasts longer than three months.
Back Pain may result from structural problems, poor posture, strain, medical conditions, etc.

Structural problems
A number of structural problems may also result in back pain.

  • Ruptured disks: Each vertebra in the spine is cushioned by disks. If the disk ruptures there will be more pressure on a nerve, resulting in back pain.
  • Bulging disks: In much the same way as ruptured disks, a bulging disk can result in more pressure on a nerve.
  • Sciatica: A sharp and shooting pain travels through the buttock and down the back of the leg, caused by a bulging or herniated disk pressing on a nerve.
  • Arthritis: Osteoarthritis can cause problems with the joints in the hips, lower back, and other places. In some cases, the space around the spinal cord narrows. This is known as spinal stenosis.
  • Abnormal curvature of the spine: If the spine curves in an unusual way, back pain can result. An example is scoliosis, in which the spine curves to the side.
  • Osteoporosis: Bones, including the vertebrae of the spine, become brittle and porous, making compression fractures more likely.

Poor posture

  • straining the neck forward, such as when driving or using a computer
  • long driving sessions without a break, even when not hunched
  • bending awkwardly or for long periods
  • pushing, pulling, lifting, or carrying something
  • standing or sitting for long periods
  • abnormal twisting/ coughing or sneezing
  • muscle tension or over-stretching
  • sleeping on a mattress that does not support the body and keep the spine straight

Medical conditions
Some medical conditions can lead to back pain.

  • Cauda equina syndrome: The cauda equine is a bundle of spinal nerve roots that arise from the lower end of the spinal cord. Symptoms include a dull pain in the lower back and upper buttocks, as well as numbness in the buttocks, genitalia, and thighs. There are sometimes bowel and bladder function disturbances.
  • Cancer of the spine: A tumor on the spine may press against a nerve, resulting in back pain.
  • Infection of the spine: A fever and a tender, warm area on the back could be due to an infection of the spine.
  • Other infections: Pelvic inflammatory disease, bladder, or kidney infections may also lead to back pain.
  • Sleep disorders: Individuals with sleep disorders are more likely to experience back pain, compared with others.

Neck Pain
Neck pain is a common complaint. The cervical spine is a specialised structure of interconnected vertebrae, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons – all of which work together to provide support while allowing a wide range of motion. Neck muscles can be often strained from poor posture — whether it’s leaning over your computer or mobile screen or hunching over your workbench. The anatomical structures in the neck can wear down or become injured, causing neck pain and possibly pain that radiates down the arm.

The pain could be Acute or Chronic in nature.

Acute neck pain usually involves a tear to a muscle or ligament in the neck.

The neck may become sore or stiff. If muscle spasm is involved, pain may be intense.

Neck pain that lasts or keeps coming back over a period of at least 3 months is considered chronic.

Neck Pain has following Signs and symptoms :

  • Pain that’s often worsened by holding your head in one place for long periods, such as when driving or working at a computer
  • Muscle tightness and spasms
  • Decreased ability to move your head
  • Headache

Slipped or herniated disc
Your spinal discs consist of a tough, rubbery outer membrane and a jelly-like interior. If something ruptures the membrane, the jelly-like interior can leak or become displaced. The displaced discs can put pressure on spinal nerves.

Degenerative disc disease
Your spine experiences a lot of wear and tear, and it’s natural for the spinal discs to become more brittle as you age. Most people don’t experience symptoms associated with these changes, but some experience significant back pain.

The joints in your spinal column may become inflamed, particularly as you age. Left untreated, osteoarthritis can progress into spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal column.

Aging can cause a significant loss of bone density, particularly for women. As bones become more brittle, the spinal vertebrae may develop tiny fractures. Vertebrae start to collapse, putting pressure on the spinal discs and nerves.

Tingling and numbness
Some people, especially those with a pinched nerve, experience tingling sensations or numbness in their legs and feet.

Sciatica may result from any process which causes pressure or irritation of the nerve roots which compromise the sciatic nerve. Sciatica often begins as an unexplained pain in the back of your leg. Even though sciatica is related to a pinched nerve or a herniated disc in your back, you may or may not feel sciatica back pain. Many patients report experiencing symptoms for the first time after lifting something heavy or after twisting their backs into an awkward position.

Common sciatica symptoms:

  • Shooting or stabbing leg pain in your legs or buttocks, usually on one side of your body.
  • Tingling or numbness in your lower extremities, particularly after sitting for long periods.
  • Weakness or difficulty moving your lower legs and feet.
  • Spinal disorders. Less common conditions like spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the area around the spinal column), spondylosis (destruction of the spinal cartilage resulting in inflammation and possible bone spurs), or spondylolisthesis (when one vertebrae becomes displaced and slips over another) can also cause sciatic leg pain.

Why Choose Sattvam Healthcare ?
In present times of medical pleuralism, it can be difficult for patients to understand what medical treatments will benefit them the most. In this pursuit, patients wander from variety of specialists e.g. Neurologic physicians, Orthopaedician, Neurologic surgeons, Physiotherapists, Ayurveda, Yoga experts, Pain specialists, etc. This effort may not always lead to desired therapeutic outcome due to diverse medical approaches of these individual treatment modalities.

Sattvam healthcare is a unique concept of integrated approach of ancient Indian system of medicine and modern medicine for betterment of patient’s health.

Our  mission includes preserving, improving, and promoting the science and practice of Ayurveda and its integrated approach  for the benefit of society.
