Abstract

Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic, systemic, inflammatory disease which affects primarily sacro-iliac joints and spine. Ankylosing spondylitis is a gradually progressive condition over several years until structural damage manifests clinically as sacroiliitis, loss of spinal mobility, extra –articular symptoms, peripheral arthritis and reduced quality of life. Various Panchkarma procedures and internal Ayurvedic medicines have been proved beneficial in the management of Ankylosing spondylitis. The present report deals with a case of Ankylosing spondylitis came to our care for Ayurvedic treatment. Patient was diagnosed as having Asthi- majja gata vata according to Ayurveda and treated with various panchkarma procedures and internal medicines. A criterion of assessment was based on the scoring of Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI). Total two assessments were carried out before and after treatment. Patient has showed good improvement on BASDAI. Improvement was found in signs and symptoms like fatigue, neck/ back / hip pain, tenderness and intensity as well as duration of morning stiffness. Ayurvedic treatment seems to be promising in the management of Ankylosing spondylitis without causing any adverse effects.

Keywords: Ankylosing Spondylitis, Asthi-majja gata vata, Panchakarma; Anuvasan - Niruha basti; Ayurvedic medicines.
