As a Vatavyadhi the Nidana(cause)is same as Vata Vyadhi, there are many causes but Vichesta(wrong posture) is common Nidana(cause) these days to develop Griddhasivata. And among Vichesta continuous driving is also a cause of Gridhrasivata where some other factors also aggravate the Vata along with driving and act as predisposing, perpetuating and provocating factor. Though well established pathogenesis is there in modern science but treatment is not cost effective.
