- PeriarthrititisPeriarthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder which affects the shoulder and the soft tissues surrounding it. This condition is often a result of injury, which results in painful joints and their lack of use. As the joint becomes increasingly stiffer and tighter, even simple movements like raising an arm becomes a chore.The onset of pain, aggravated by excess movements of the shoulder joints may be insidious or acute. Soreness, stiffness and dysfunction of the shoulder are some major clinical manifestations of this condition.
- MigraineMigraine is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by recurrent moderate to severe headache often in association with a number autonomic nervous system symptoms. Typically the headache is unilateral (affecting one half of the head) and pulsating in nature, lasting from 2 to 72 hours. Associated symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, photophobia (increased sensitivity to light), phonophobia(increased sensitivity to sound) and the pain is generally aggravated by physical activity.
- Rotator Cuff TearPain in the antero-lateral aspect of the shoulder is not specific to the shoulder and may arise from, and be referred from, the neck, heart or gut. Pain over the front and outer aspect of the shoulder, pain aggravated by leaning on the elbow and pushing upwards on the shoulder (such as leaning on the armrest of a reclining chair), intolerance to overhead activity, pain at night when lying directly on the affected shoulder, pain when reaching forward (e.g. unable to lift a gallon of milk from the refrigerator). With longer standing pain, the shoulder is favored and gradually loss of motion .
- Cervical SpondylitisIt is a common cause of chronic neck pain. The fourth to seventh cervical vertebrae are most commonly affected by these degenerative changes. Middle- aged people and women are more prone to cervical spondylosis. The bones in the neck begin to degenerate with aging. Disc degeneration (collapse, of the disc spaces and loss of disc space height) and bone spurs lead to cervical spondylosis. The disc space becomes narrow and gradually compresses the nerve. In advanced cases of cervical spondylosis, spinal cord is affected and may also lead to paralysis of the arm. Neck pain and stiffness resulting in limitation of movement; and numbness or weakness in arms, hands, and fingers can be commonly seen in patients with cervical spondylosis.
- FibromyalgiaThe defining symptoms of fibromyalgia are chronic widespread pain, fatigue, and heightened pain. Other symptoms may include tingling of the skin, prolonged muscle spasm, weakness in the limbs nerve pain, muscle twitching, palpitation functional bowel disturbances, and chronic sleep disturbances. Many patients experience impaired concentration, problems with short and long term memory, short-term memory consolidation impaired speed of performance, inability to multi-task, cognitive overload, and diminished attention span. Fibromyalgia is often associated with anxiety and depression
- Planter FascitisIt is commonly associated with long periods ofweight bearing. Among non- athletic populations, it is associated with a high body weight.The pain is usually felt on the underside of the heel and is often most intense with the first steps of the day. Another symptom is that the sufferer has difficulty bending the foot so that the toes are brought toward the shin. A symptom commonly recognized among sufferers of plantar fasciitis is an increased probability of knee pains, especially among runners.

- Golfers ElbowGolfer's elbow causes pain and inflammation in the tendons that connect the forearm to the elbow. The pain centers on the bony bump on the inside of your elbow and may radiate into the forearm. It can usually be treated effectively with rest. Golfer's elbow is usually caused by overusing the muscles in the forearm that allow you to grip, rotate your arm, and flex your wrist. Repetitive flexing, gripping, or swinging can cause pulls or tiny tears in the tendons. Despite the name, this condition doesn't just affect golfers. Any repetitive hand, wrist, or forearm motions can lead to golfer's elbow. Risky sports include tennis, bowling, and baseball -- in fact, it's sometimes called pitcher's elbow. People may also get it from using tools like screwdrivers and hammers, raking, or painting

- Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy /TendonitisRotator cuff tendonitis is a condition characterised by damage, inflammation and degeneration of one or more of the rotator cuff tendons The rotator cuff is a group of muscles which originate from the shoulder blade and attach to the upper arm bone (humerus) via the rotator cuff tendons). Collectively, the rotator cuff act to provide stability to the shoulder joint and assist with elevation and rotation movements of the shoulder. The 4 muscles of the rotator cuff include: • Supraspinatus • Infraspinatus • Subscapularis • Teres Minor During contraction of the rotator cuff muscles, tension is placed through the rotator cuff muscles and tendons. When this tension is excessive due to too much repetition or high force, damage to the rotator cuff tendons may occur. Rotator cuff tendonitis is a condition whereby there is damage, with subsequent inflammation and degeneration to one or more of the rotator cuff tendons. This is usually due to gradual wear and tear associate

Welcome to Kerala Ayurveda
The word "Ayurveda" consists of two Sanskrit words AYU and VEDA. Ayu means life and Veda is knowledge or science
Ayurveda is a Indian system of holistic solutions that uses a constitutional model. It emphasizes to provide proper guidance regarding food and lifestyle so that healthy people can stay healthy and folks with health challenges can improve their health.There are several aspects to Ayurveda that are unique.
Its recommendations will often be different for each person regarding which foods and which lifestyle they should follow in order to be completely healthy. This is due to it's use of constitutional model; Vata, Pitta, Kapha. Everything in Ayurveda is validated by observation, inquiry, direct examination and knowledge derived from the ancient texts. It understands that there are energy forces that influence nature and human beings. These forces are called the Tridoshas. In Ayurveda, there are three dosha-predominant constitutions or Prakrutis (also prakritis): Vata predominant, Pitta predominant, and Kapha predominant; three dual dosha constitutions, where two doshas are equally or nearly equally predominant: Vata-Pitta, Pitta-Kapha and Vata-Kapha; and one tridoshic Prakruti with all three doshas equally prominent: Vata-Pitta-Kapha.
Most of us have a predominant dosha in our constitution, and some people have a dual doshic constitution, where two doshas are equally predominant. It is extremely rare to find someone with all doshas in equal proportions. Ayurveda sees a strong connection between the mind and the body. In any case, is it important to remember that the body mind complex is a dynamic unity and all three doshas are constantly interacting with each other and with the environment.
