Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis is a form of arthritis that brings about similar issues as other types of arthritis, primarily joint pains. It triggers inflammation in the joints and ligaments of the spine, affecting other joints like knees, ankles, and hips.

Individuals with Ankylosing spondylitis often experience stiffness in the spine due to inflammation, leading to the fusion of bones in the spine in some cases. This fusion results in an inflexible and rigid spine.

While there may not be a complete cure for ankylosing spondylitis, Ayurveda has been known to effectively manage and alleviate the symptoms of this condition. Ayurvedic treatments aim to control symptoms and improve the overall quality of life for individuals dealing with ankylosing spondylitis.

Common Causes of Ankylosing Spondylitis


Genetic Factors

Ankylosing spondylitis, a condition linked to genetics, has a higher risk for individuals carrying a specific gene called HLA-B27

Immune System Dysfunction

Ankylosing spondylitis is an autoimmune disease where, for reasons not completely understood, the immune system mistakenly attacks the body’s own tissues, especially the joints and ligaments in the spine. This autoimmune response causes persistent inflammation, pain, and stiffness, and in some instances, it can lead to the fusion of the spine.

Environmental Factors

While genetic factors primarily contribute to ankylosing spondylitis, certain environmental factors also play a role in the development of the condition.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a rheumatic disease, and in conventional medicine, there isn’t a fully satisfactory treatment. However, Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatment has proven effective in managing or curing this condition. Ayurvedic solutions include medicines and Panchakarma therapies play a crucial role in this. These medicines help balance the doshas in the body, promoting overall healing and disease resolution.

One amazing ayurvedic panchakarma treatment is Shalishastika Pinda Svedana, a therapy involving sweating with a medicated bolus of rice, performed over one month or more for those suffering from AS.

Mustadi Yapana Basti (enema with medicated milk) and Anuvasana (enema with Ashwagandha oil) are administered for 30 days.

Additionally, oral Ayurvedic drugs are prescribed for two months. Pratimarsha nasya (nasal drops) with herbal oil is done for 15-20 days.

Complementing these treatments, a specific Ayurvedic diet, yoga, and other recommendations are provided by professional Ayurvedic clinics like Vedic Sutrra.
