Have back pain, muscle weakness. Given Abhyanaga, swedana, shirodhra. Why no recovery?

I am B.A.M.S doctor precticing Ayurveda .I recently offered Abhyanaga+swedana+shirodhra to a pietient complaining of Back pain and muscle weakness .I used sesame oil for shirodhara and sesame+ mahanarayan oil for swedana.Unlike my other clients this patients experianced some incresed pain in Back.The patient is Pitta vatta body type and I adviced him to avoid Vatta diet for the bone issue.I was thinking of proceding to katibasti and shastishali and Pinswedana after these sessions. Any idea what went wrong because all my other patients undergoing the same treatment are very well sorted.

Ayurveda Specialist 's  Response
1. you offered treatment only to the complaint without investigating/diagnosing the cause of LBA.
2. back pain was arising from muscles,nerves,joints or was it referred pain?
3. Sciatica pain can be easily missed, could be herniated disc, spondylosis,
4. go for MRI to rule out spinal stenosis (if present, abhanga,swedana) won't have any effect.

Homeopath Dr. Rangadhar Satapathy's  Response
Dear Dr
The back pain has multifaceted ethology. If the back pain is due to lumbar spondylosis or have some traumatic history where there is no disc dispalcement that can be cured by the basic principle of ayurveda or homeopathic way of treatment. But if the back pain is due to herniated disc condition then I think medicine alone can not be helpful. physiotherapy or surgical procedure may be required. Need to know the exact condition from MRI of spine then only the plan of treatment can be fixed. Sorry I dont have the knowledge in ayurveda procedure of treatment but it is just a generalise opinion which may helpful for your further plan of treatment
Thank you so much
