We Treat


One of the common causes of lower back pain in modern days is Sciatica.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest spinal nerve in the human body, travelling from the buttocks into the legs.

Sciatica is caused due to irritation to the sciatic nerve. It is a neuropathic pain, and can occur due to injury, compression or dysfunction of this nerve.

Sciatica is characterized by a pain running from the lumbar (lower back) region to the back of the legs. Sciatica pains – felt in either one or both of the legs – are usually experienced after the age of thirty and can go on aggravating as the person ages.

This pain is a chronic pain and is difficult to cure with conventional medicines. While the pain can subside when painkillers are taken, Ayurveda offers the holistic management of chronic diseases by treating the underlying cause of the disease.


  • Pain travels from the buttock, down the back of the thigh, and into the toe.
  • Sciatica usually affects either the lower left or right side of the body.
  • Walking, standing, bending over, driving a car, working at a computer, catching up on household chores, sneezing or coughing, and many other activities of daily living can cause sudden and intense pain.

Causes of Sciatica

  • Spinal injury
  • Overweight
  • Irregular exercises
  • Herniated disk
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Sleeping on a soft mattress
  • Wearing high heels

Ayurvedic management of Sciatica

Sciatica is known as Gridhrasi in Ayurveda. (Gridhra means Eagle), as the gait of the affected person can resemble that of an eagle’s walk and the inflamed nerve appears like an eagle’s beak. Sciatica is typical of Vata imbalances.

Sciatica is also considered to be caused by an impaired digestive system. A faulty digestion causes the build-up of toxins (ama) that keep on accumulating in the minute channels of the body.
