Abstract

A SINGLE CASE STUDY ON SUCCESSFUL AYURVEDIC MANAGEMENT OF GRIDHRASI (SCIATICA) - CASE STUDY

Manish Choudhari*, Naresh Jain and Preeti Jain

Abstract

Background:- Gridhrasi is a most common disease among the Vata Nanatmaja Vikaras mentioned by Acharyas, which closely resembles with sciatica, which is characterized by discomfort or pain associated with sciatic nerve. Sciatica is mainly seen in people aged 40-59 years and the prevalence of sciatica is found to be 3.8% in the working population and 7.9% in the non-working population. Contemporary medicine has limitations of providing short-term relief in pain, hence Ayurvedic therapy is more effective in Gridhrasi. Aim and Objectives:- The aim of this study was to access the efficacy of Ayurvedic management including Shodhan and Shaman Chikitsa in Gridhrasi. Materials and Method:- A 45-year-old female patient was reporting back pain for three consecutive months. When his SLR test was done, the test was found negative on the right leg and positive on the left leg at 30 degrees, which we correlated to Gridhrasi. The patient was treated in Ayurvedic hospital with Abhyanga, Patra Pinda Swedana, Mridu Virechana (~Shodhan), Kati Vasti, and Shaman therapy including Yograj Guggula, Trayodashaanga Guggula, Rasana Saptaka Kwatha and Dashamularishta. The treatment continued for one and a half months. Results:- The symptomatic evaluation of the patient was done after one and half month and we had satisfactory results and the overall quality of life of the patient was greatly improved. Conclusion:- By doing the above therapy, symptomatic relief was found for the management of Gridhrasi.

Keywords: Gridhrasi, Sciatica, Shodhan Chikitsa, Shaman Chikitsa.
