L5-S1 disc protrusion is the most common condition among the spinal problems. Among 100 patients of spinal problems L5-S1 90 cases belong to L5-S1 disc protrusion. Mrs. Girija Sharma was that case. The day when Mrs. Sharma came to us for treatment, she was not able to walk properly. It was much difficult for her to stand upright. Pain in lower leg was so sharp that it was not allowing her to stand for a while. Here is her story for the ayurvedic treatment of l5-s1 disc protrusion.
L5-S1 disc protrusion
Mrs. Girija’s MRI Finding are as below
- Loss of lumbar Lordosis
- At L5-S1 level intervertebral disc appears dessicated in form of reduced T2 hyperintensity with diffuse (central & bilateral paracentral).
- L5-S1 disc protrusion with facetal arthrosis causing indentation over thecal sac and encroaching over nerve exit zones.
The L5 nerve root of the patient was compressed. She was not able to walk properly at all. This all happened because of prolonged stiffness in the lower back.
There was stiffness in lower back since 5 years with the patient. But she kept on trying to find something to reduce pain duet to L5-S1 disc protrusion. This medicine to that medicine, nothing worked properly. And in end, her body gave up.
The day when she arrived at Sukhayu Ayurved, Jaipur for Ayurvedic treatment of L5-S1 disc protrusion, she was suffering-

- Patient was unable to walk for few meters due to severe pain in the lower limb.
- Low back ache

- Patient was unable to stand in a place for longer time.
This all was happening with the patient for few weeks. Earlier she was having pain in the lower limb only. She was adjusting with the pain. But this pain was disabling her. Disability was increasing day by day.

The lepam/ pradeha with multiple herbs worked well in this case.
