Back pain is one of the biggest health issues in the western world. It is certainly related to our sedentary lifestyle, stress levels and sitting long hours at our desks but gaining an ayurvedic perspective on this issue can broaden our understanding and offer us more options. Back pain is as much to do with diet and lifestyle as it is to do with posture. Ayurveda has many names for back pain but the most common cause is Sandhigatavata- vata entering the joints which can eventually lead to more severe manifestations of the disease. Understanding the nature of vata dosha or the wind humour of the body can help us identify the changes we need to make to stay well for longer.
