Have you heard of IVDP?
IVDP stands for Intervertebral Disc Prolapse. Let us understand this term. There are small spaces between each of the vertebrae in our body. These spaces are occupied by cushion-like substances known as discs.
Why do we need discs?
Discs present between the vertebrae absorb sensations like shock and prevent serious repercussions.
The term prolapse means to protrude outside. Therefore in IVDP, it begins with a slight protrusion of the disc outside through the intervertebral space. This anomaly can cause pain in various degrees and hamper the movements of the patient.
The factors that pose a risk for prolapse of the disc are :
Usually, the lumbar portion of the vertebrae is where the prolapse occurs but there are chances for the other parts also to be affected.
The symptoms that can be seen in IVDP are :
The above are the symptoms generically seen in patients, but the range can differ depending on the cause of the trauma and the age of the patient.
Ayurveda has mentioned treatments for almost all the diseases that we find today. It is astonishing to say that the conditions we see today were explained by the scholars of Ayurveda eons back. Needless to say, they specified the treatments for each of these conditions in detail and with the utmost accuracy.

All the diseases related to bones, joints, and muscles are usually due to the vitiation of vata dosha. These diseases take time to treat because they are caused by vata dosha. Though the tridoshas is important, it is the vata dosha that is the most eminent. As once vata dosha gets affected, it harms the other two dosha and amplifies the disease condition.
Now let us try to find an Ayurvedic correlation to IVDP.
The cardinal feature of IVDP is back pain, which can be known as kati shula in Ayurveda. But in IVDP, if there is radiation of pain to the leg and feet through the thigh then it is called gridhrasi.
In the scriptures of Ayurveda, gridhrasi is mentioned by scholars under vata vyadhi. There are two types :
