Kampvata is one of the vata vyadhi according to ayurveda. It can be correlated with parkinsonism in modern science. Parkinsonism is disease in which there is paucity of movement (akinesia or bradykinesia) often accompanied by an increased muscle tone (rigidity) and hyperkinesia or dyskinesia, which are associated with excessive abnormal involuntary movements. Kampavata (parkinsonism) affects speech, gait, expression of mood and emotions and various daily routine activitis of body. Major complication of the condition are progressive supranuclear palsy,multiple system atrophy, parkinsonism-dementia-amyotrophic lateral saclerosis complex; to avoid that, it is necessary to start treatment as early as possible.
