Abstract

RAKTMOKSHANA IN GRADHRASI

*Dr. Atul Badoni, Dr. Yamini Jukaria and Dr. Rajeev Kumar

ABSTRACT

In ayurveda gridhrasi (sciatica) is explained as one among 80 types of Vata imbalance disorders. It is a painful condition afflicting the lower limbs called „Gridhrasi ‟wherein the pain along with stiffness, sensation of pins and needles, gripping and pulsations start in the spik or the buttocks [gluteal region] initially and gradually encroach the regions of the posterior aspect of kati (pelvis and lumbo sacral regions), ooru (thigh), jaanu (behind the knee), jangha (leg) and pada (foot) in that order. Gridhrasi can be compared with the „Sciatica‟ explained in the modern texts due to a close resemblance in the manifestations of both the conditions. Raktamokshana is considered one among Shodhana procedures. Raktamokshana means letting of blood which is mainly indicated in certain disease state especially when there is Rakta-dushti and also during Physiological condition.
