*Rakshitha Kumari, Niranjan Rao and Padmakiran C.

Abstract

The muscular dystrophies are group of hereditary disorders characterized by progressive degeneration of selective group of muscles without involvement of nervous system. BMD is one among the most common muscular disorders seen in age group between 5 and 25 years. The pelvic and pectoral muscles are predominantly affected. BMD is an X-linked recessive inherited disorder characterized by slowly progressing muscle weakness of the legs and pelvis. Vata is responsible for control of all the central nervous functions in the body. It is also responsible for all the movements in the body. Disease caused by vata in its vitiated condition is called vatavyadhi. In charaka samhita it mentioned that causes of vitiation of vata can be divided in two samprapti i.e, Dhatukshayajanya and Margavarodhajanya. After deciding avastha of vatavyadhi we can decide the treatment. There is not a cure for BMD, steroid medications helps individuals remain able to walk for as long as possible. Generally leads to slowly worsening disability, but the amount of disability can vary among affected people. The lifespan is often shorted due to heart disease and respiratory complications. Most people with BMD survive well into mid –to late adulthood. If the effects of the condition on the heart mild or if they are adequately controlled with medical intervension, a person can have a normal or nearly normal life span. With this basic concept, a male patient of 16years diagnosed as BMD was treated with Ayurvedic management 7 sittings in IPD level and 5 OPD level sittings. The treatment showed significant reduction in the level of CPK in every follow up and even improvement seen in the symptoms Hence it can be effectively practiced in the management of BMD.

Keywords: Backer’s muscular dystrophy, Creatine phosphokinase, Vata vyadhi, Dhatukshayajanya, Margavarodhajanya.
