Ayurvedic Treatment of Thoracolumbar Scoliosis


Thoracolumbar scoliosis is a disease of the spine. The spine or vertebral column or backbone consists of 26 vertebrae in an adult body. Backbone is the most important part of the body because without that one cannot survive happily in this world. Backbone gives us strength to stand upright. The spine is divided into five regions that are Cervical, Thoracic, Lumbar, Sacrum, and Coccyx. It gives us body structure and support. This spine allows us to move freely and to bend with flexibility. In this vertebral column, there is a presence of spinal nerves which allows us to move our body parts. The structure and function of the vertebral column can be affected by some disease like scoliosis, lordosis, kyphosis, pott’s spine, or some degenerative changes. In this article we will discuss one of the spine deformities that are thoracolumbar scoliosis and its Ayurvedic treatment in detail.


Scoliosis is a condition in which the curvature of the vertebral column is abnormal in shape. In general, the healthy spine has an “S” shaped curve. In the structure of the spine there are five curves that give normal shape to the spine and also provide flexibility and strength to the spine. In thoracolumbar scoliosis, there is an abnormal curvature of the middle back region that is Thoracic spine and lower back region that is lumbar spine. In this condition, the spine is usually curved towards the right side.
