Abstract

AYURVEDIC MANAGEMENT OF GHRIDHRASI WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO SCIATICA: A CASE STUDY

*Vd. Sunil A. Bhaskare (M.D., Ph.D.) and Vd. Samin A. R. Shaikh

ABSTRACT

Sciatica is the neuralgic pain that starts in the back and radiates along the posterior aspect of lower limb to heel. The lifetime incidence of this condition is estimated to be between 13% to 40%. Sciatica resembles the disease Gridhrasi of Ayurveda, which is one among the 80 Nanatmaja Vata vyadhi. The vitiated Vata dosha gets localised in the Sphika-Kati (Lumbo- Sacral) region, producing pain which radiates through posterior aspect of Uru, Janu, Jangha, and Pada. This study deals with diagnosed case of Right sided Sciatica. Ayurvedic diagnosis of Dakshinpada Gridhrasi was made and managed with Shodhana (Purification therapy) like Yoga Basti and Panchatikta ksheer Ghruta Basti, along with Shamana (Alleviating therapy) and Sthanika Chikitsa (Agnikarma and Patrapottali Swedana). Patient was admitted in our institute for 21 days and significant relief was observed in his symptoms. At the end of treatment, patient could walk confidently and happily.

Keywords: Ghridhrasi, Sciatica, Basti, Agnikarma.
