ayurveda for pain

Thousands of years old, Ayurveda is a traditional medicine system from India. It is one of the oldest continuously practiced traditions of medicine in the world.

While Ayurveda provides a vast guide of practical advice and wisdom on almost every aspect of your health, we specialise in its use for pain and injury management.

A range of Ayurvedic treatments are available to treat your aches, pains or injuries, and address the underlying cause. Treatments give you relief from pain, stiffness and inflammation, increase range of motion, and strengthen and rejuvenate joints, muscles and soft tissue.

Our treatments are also beneficial for reducing the risk of injuries, enhancing physical performance and maintaining optimal health.

Our Ayurvedic treatments are practised in the traditional way without reinvention or dilution. They include a range of massages, therapies, herbal oils, pastes, poultices and heat therapies. Ayurvedic herbal medicine and dietary, lifestyle and daily routine modifications are also prescribed when necessary.

Below are some of the common painful conditions we treat at the clinic. The conditions we treat are not limited to these. Please contact us if you’d like more advice regarding what treatment is best for you.
ayurveda for back pain

Back pain

Ayurvedic name – Kati Shoola

Treatments help relieve pain, stiffness and inflammation, reintroduce muscle flexibility and joint mobility, and eliminate the underlying cause of your back pain.

Back pain is the most common reason people visit us. Up to 80% of people experience back pain at some stage of their lives. It can have a major impact on your lifestyle. It can be caused by injury, general wear and tear, misalignment, poor posture, inactivity and incorrect lifting and bending. Back pain may have a sudden onset, or it can be a chronic pain. The pain can be constant or fluctuating, stay in one place or radiate to other areas. It may be a dull ache, or sharp and precise.

ayurveda for frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder

Ayurvedic name – Apabahuka

Treatments for frozen shoulder help eliminate the cause of your pain, minimise stiffness and restore range of motion.

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a common source of shoulder pain. It is a temporary condition that causes pain, stiffness and severely limits the range of movement in the shoulder.

ayurveda for neck pain

Neck pain

Ayurvedic name – Greeva Shoola

Treatments help relieve pain, stiffness and inflammation, reintroduce muscle flexibility and joint mobility, and eliminate the underlying cause of your neck pain.

As the neck is a highly mobile area of the body, it is susceptible to pain and injury. Neck pain has always been a problem for humans, but even more so now due to working on computers or looking down at our phones. As well as poor posture, neck pain can also be caused by awkward movement, trauma, general stress and degenerative diseases such as arthritis. Neck pain can cause headaches and vice versa.

ayurveda for joint pain

Joint pain

Ayurvedic name – Sandhi Shoola

Treatments help relieve pain, stiffness and inflammation, preserve joint function and treat the underlying cause of your joint pain.

Joints form the connections between bones providing support and helping you move. Damage to the joints from disease or injury can cause pain and reduce your range of movement. Joint pain can range from mild to severe. Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, strains, sprains, sports injuries and other injuries. Joint pain is extremely common, especially as we get older.

ayurveda for sciatica


Ayurvedic name – Gridhrasi

Treatments help eliminate the cause of your pain by treating the aggravation causing your sciatica.

Sciatica is a result of irritation of the sciatic nerve which passes from the lower end of the spinal cord into the back of the leg down to the foot. This irritation can be due to pressure on the nerve anywhere along its path. Sciatica is a symptom, not a diagnosis. Your sciatica may be a one-off occurrence, or it can flare up at times depending on the underlying condition.

ayurveda for arthritis


Treatments for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis to suit the stage, location and underlying cause of your arthritis pain.
Arthritis is a general term for more than 100 conditions in which the joints are inflamed causing swelling, pain and restricted movement. The most common types of arthritis are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.


Ayurvedic name – Sandhivata

Osteoarthritis develops as a result of wear and tear on joints. This leads to pain, swelling and stiffness of the affected joints, as the cartilage which protects the joints wears down and the cushioning between the bones is removed.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Ayurvedic name – Amavata

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the joint lining becomes inflamed. It causes pain and swelling in the joints, and stiffness in the mornings may occur.

ayurveda for sports injury

Sports injuries

Whether acute or chronic, both types of sports injuries require proper care and treatment. Treatments relieve pain, stiffness and inflammation, speed up recovery time of your sports injury and minimise re-injury.
Sports injuries include strains, sprains, cartilage injuries, muscle tears and injuries to the joints, tendons or ligaments. Sports injuries are usually caused by participating in a physical activity though not necessarily through a formalised sport. There are two kinds of sports injuries: acute and chronic. Acute injury – occurs suddenly, such as a sprained ankle from an awkward landing. Chronic injury – caused by prolonged wear and tear of a body part.

ayurveda for headache


Ayurvedic name – Shira Shoola

Treatments focus on alleviating the pain and treating the underlying cause of your headaches.

There are many types of headaches with different causes or triggers. Different headaches need to be treated in different ways. Some of the more common causes for headaches are lifestyle related, such as poor diet, stress, muscle tension, and lack of exercise.

ayurveda for plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis

Ayurvedic name – Padadaham

Treatments for plantar fasciitis help to relieve inflammation and pain, and improve muscle flexibility and joint mobility in the foot and lower leg.

One of the most common causes of heel pain is plantar fasciitis. It involves pain and inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. Plantar fasciitis is an overuse condition, and those affected often have pain of the heel and midfoot that becomes exacerbated by prolonged standing and walking. The pain is usually worst with the first few steps in the morning.

ayurveda for sinusitis


Ayurvedic name – Peenasam

Treatments for sinusitis help to open and clear the breathing channels allowing you to breathe fully and easily again. As many imbalances could contribute to this condition, we also focus on treating the cause.

Sinusitis causes the cavities around your nasal passages to become inflamed and swollen. This interferes with drainage and causes mucus to build up. The area around your eyes and face may feel swollen, and you may have facial pain or a headache.
