Lumbar Spondylosis-What does it mean

Lumbar Spondylosis affects a large population above the age of 40. Lumbar Spondylosis means the degeneration of the lumbar spine that occurs due to the normal wear and tear process. Lumbar spine is the lower area of back and for all practical purposes here, means the lower back. Due to this degeneration the intervetebral discs lose their normal water content, dehydrate and shrink in size. They also lose their elasticity. At times they may bulge from their normal position and impinge on the nerves passing through the lumbar spine. Sometimes bony spurs are formed and they can also be quite painful.

What are the causes of Lumbar Spondylosis

The normal degenerative processes that work on human body are responsible for lumbar spondylosis. The body wears with age. This process has been hastened by the modern lifestyle. Working long hours on the computer, sitting long hours watching TV, poor sitting posture and obesity all contribute to this problem.

Symptoms of Lumbar Spondylosis

The main and most prominent symptom of lumbar spondylosis is back pain. This pain of Lumbar spondylosis may be present in the lower back. The severity or intensity of this back pain may vary from patient to patient. In some patients, the pain may be mild. In other patients, the pain may be severe and can cause one to be bedridden. The intensity of pain may also have a poor correlation to the underlying problem. In some patients, the spondylosis is quite advanced but they don’t feel too much pain. In some other patients, the problem may be slight but the pain may be intense. This may have something to do with individual capacity to tolerate pain too.  Another common symptom may be stiffness in the area of lower back. This stiffness may be aggravated after sitting for long or lying for long or when getting up in the morning. In fact, most of the patients complain of stiffness in the back rather than actual pain. In patients who have pain, the pain is often referred from the lower back into the hips and legs. The pain increases while standing for some time and bending forwards.There may be numbness of the lower leg or the feet.

Treating lumbar spondylosis or back pain

The main symptom from which patients seek relief when they go to a doctor is back pain. Most of the time, they have been taking painkillers for a long time before they realize that this back pain is not a simple muscular pain and has some deeper cause. In the allopathic system of medicine, there is hardly any treatment for back pain arising from lumbar spondylosis. The usual painkillers and muscle relaxants are not of much use in the long run. Physiotherapy or other forms of exercise like yoga have a good role to play in the long run in providing  a solution to this back pain due to lumbar spondylosis.

Homeopathic treatment for lumbar spondylosis or back pain

Homeopathic medicines have a very good success rate when it comes to treating lumbar spondylosis. These medicines not only relieve the symptoms of pain, stiffness and numbness that are commonly seen but also allow the patient to regain complete range of motion. Once cured, one can easily bend forwards or sideways. This is a definite advantage and one starts feeling young all over again. Therefore the long term solution provided by Homeopathy in the treatment of lumbar spondylosis or back pain is much superior to the short term measures offered by allopathy.

5 Best Homeopathic remedies for Lumbar Spondylosis

When it comes to the medicines that are used in the homeopathic treatment of lumbar spondylosis, one has to say that there are dozens of remedies that are capable of treating this problem. It all depends on the symptoms of each and every patient. At all times, one has to take all details of the patient before one can prescribe the right medicine. Having said that, I have seen that a few homeopathic remedies are quite commonly indicated in the treatment of lumbar spondylosis.

Here are the 5 best Homeopathic medicines for Lumbar Spondylitis-

  • Rhus Tox – best medicine for lumbar spondylitis with stiffness

  • Bryonia – best medicine for lumbar spondylosis with pain increased on movement

  • Nux Vomica – best homeopathic medicine for lumbar spondylitis pain due to lifting

  • Silicea – best homeopathic remedy for lumbar spondylitis with bony changes

  • Hypericum – best medicine for lumbar spondylitis with nerve involvement

I am giving the indications of these homeopathic medicines for the perusal of all. This does not in any way mean that all patients can be treated with one of these medicines. Also, this does not mean that these are the only remedies that Homeopathy has to offer for the treatment of back pain or lumbar spondylosis. Here are the 5 best Homeopathic remedies for lumbar spondylosis, as per my own experience.

1. Rhus Tox-One of the best Homeopathic medicines for lumbar spondylosis with stiffness

Rhus Tox is the most frequently used homeopathic medicine while treating acute phase of lumbar spondylosis. It can easily relieve the stiffness that is associated with this problem. This medicine is very suitable for stiffness that gets aggravated on resting for some time and is relieved by motion. The stiffness is worse in the morning on getting up. If the pain and stiffness are aggravated by cold and damp weather, Rhus Tox is the best homeopathic medicine for lumbar spondylosis.

2. Bryonia- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for lumbar spondylosis with aggravation from motion

In cases where the pain is increased by motion or walking, Bryonia is very effective at relieving the pain. There is aching in the muscles of the back and turning in bed is very difficult. This pain is better by pressure or by lying on the painful part. Heat or warmth tend to increase the pain. Increased thirst is another useful indication for this medicine. In such cases, it can easily be called one of the best homeopathic medicines for lumbar spondylosis.

3. Nux Vomica- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for lumbar spondylosis due to lifting

In case the pain has been triggered by lifting weight or any heavy object, Nux vomica works wonders. It is a very good medicine when it comes to treating lumbar spondylosis caused due to the modern day lifestyle where physical activity is little while mental stress is too much. Getting up in the morning is a big task as the pain is worse in the morning. The pain is usually aggravated in winters. When these symptoms and modalities match, Nux Vomica is easily one of the best homeopathic medicines for lumbar spondylosis.

4. Silicea- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for lumbar spondylosis with degenerative changes in bones

Silicea is one of the best Homeopathic medicines for lumbar spondylosis in cases where there are some degenerative changes in the bones. These changes may be osteoarthritic forming bony spurs or they may concern the discs. Any exposure to cold air can bring on the pain. The patient feels better in warmth and in the summer weather.

5. Hypericum-One of the best Homeopathic medicines for lumbar spondylosis with nerve involvement

In cases where the disc or the bony spurs impinge on the nerves and the pain radiates to the lower limbs, Hypericum is one of the best homeopathic medicines for lumbar spondylosis.  It can relieve the pain as well as the muscle spasm.
