We live in a very tech-savvy world. We are constantly glued to a screen which makes us glued to a specific position for prolonged hours. It can be due to work or personal choice. Because of this, the problem of spinal disorders is on the increasing side. The most common of it being the back pain. The surprising thing is that back pain and spinal disorders are now-a-days contracted at a very young age. This can lead to chronic problems in later which could hamper basic mobility as well as flexibility. WHAT IS KATI BASTI? Kati Basti is Ayurveda’s unique treatment for musculoskeletal disorders of the spine, shoulder and joints. It provides significant relief in conditions such as sciatica, slipped and degenerative discs, back pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, knee elbow and arthritis. A dam made of dough is placed over the affected area and filled with warm medicated oil. After the oil is removed the therapist performs the back massage followed by an herbal steam to help deepen the effect of the treatment. Kati Basti is deep tissue therapy that uses heat to heal and oils to repair the tissue. Heat increases blood flow which reduces swelling, assists with pain relief and softens ligaments, tendons and muscles. This in turn allows joints, tendons and ligaments to be stretched further where there is little movement. To benefit from the treatment in a chronic or a long-standing condition such as frozen shoulder or degenerative disc, a patient needs 7-10 treatment sessions with 1-2 treatments per week. One may feel the difference after just 1 treatment however long term resolution of pain and return of mobility and flexibility will take a little more time. BENEFITS OF KATI BASTI
