In a unique initiative in the field of spinal injury treatment, two completely different forms of medicine practitioners have joined hands for the benefit of the general public. Ayurveda Palms and Indian Spinal Injuries Centre (ISIC), which have been using two different practices of Ayurveda & Allopathy respectively, have tied up to offer a new and effective way of treatment for spinal and orthopaedic ailments.
The treatment in the simplified form would mean patients undergoing advanced spinal and orthopaedic surgeries as they normally do at the ISIC hospital, followed by a range of natural and external therapy using natural ingredients and strict dietary measures of Ayurveda Palms for speeding up the rehabilitation and recovery process. In other words, Ayurveda Palms which uses the methodology of applying herbal pastes and yogic therapies, would help the patient recover faster with the help of the ayurvedic therapies that are economically more feasible and can be as effective as allopathic medicines. This technique is found to be more useful to the patients who prefer nature based solutions to their spinal ailments. It can also be useful in patients who are not fit to undergo a surgery.
“With its (Ayurvedic treatment) proven results in all kinds of pain which include pain in the back, neck & knee, arthritic and joint pains, headache, pressure sores and after surgery ailments etc., more and more patients are nowadays opting for this kind of supportive therapy,” says Dr. Chitra Kataria, Head-Department, Rehabilitation, Indian Spinal Injuries Centre.
“At ISIC, we are constantly looking for new ways to improve the treatment. Our experience suggests that while advanced surgeries are essential for treating spinal ailments, the natural form of medicine like ayurveda speeds up the rehabilitation and recovery process. Our association with Ayurveda Palms is an effort to amalgamate Western Science and Indian traditional medicine system, in order to cure the patient,” says Dr. HS Chhabra, Medical Director, Indian Spinal Injuries Center.
The idea behind such a combination is that not all patients would like to undergo the treatment through the allopathic process. As a result of this initiative, the patient could choose between the ayurvedic and allopathic treatment after the surgery according to his/her wishes.
