Ayurvedic Treatment for Frozen Shoulders
Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a prevalent condition characterized by stiffness and pain in the shoulder joints. The onset of symptoms is gradual, progressively worsening before eventually subsiding.
The shoulder comprises three bones—humerus (upper arm), scapula (shoulder blade), and clavicle (collarbone)—forming a ball and socket joint. Surrounding this joint is the shoulder capsule, a connective tissue that maintains joint stability. In the case of a frozen shoulder, the capsule thickens and tightens, reducing movement. Additionally, the reduced synovial fluid around the joint contributes to the difficulty in shoulder mobility.
The selection of frozen shoulder treatment in Ayurveda is personalized based on the individual and the specific ailment. Below are some commonly employed Ayurvedic treatments for addressing frozen shoulder:
Snehana: Snehana involves the application of medicated oils, ghee, and herbs internally and externally for a duration of three to seven days. This process is crucial as it helps in loosening ama, toxins, and doshas within the body.
Swedana: Swedana is a thermal or non-thermal procedure designed to alleviate stiffness, heaviness, and cold sensations while inducing sweating in the body. Utilizing different properties of swedana dravyas, proves particularly beneficial in addressing vata kaphaja rogas (diseases).
Basti: Basti is a treatment aimed at supporting Vata energy. An enema prepared with oil and fat, possessing the sharp properties of Vata, plays a significant role in reducing Kapha and eliminating amatoxins.
Nasya: Nasya treatment involves the instillation of herbal oils, juices, or powders through the nasal route. Particularly beneficial for ailments affecting areas above the base of the neck, this therapy targets the nasal passage, serving as the gateway to the head in Ayurvedic principles.
