Abstract

KATIGRAHA-AN UNDERSTANDING THROUGH NIDANA

Kavya Krishnan C.*, Geetha B. Markande and Prashanth Jain

Abstract

Katigraha is one among the Vataja Nanatmaja Vyadhi which simulates with the signs and symptoms of Low Back pain. It continues to be the most common health concern for which patients seek primary care therapy. Our Acharyas explains Katigraha as a Lakshana in various Vatavyadhi and in other diseases. Here, Katigraha indicates a disease condition of the back associated with pain and stiff movements. Hence in this context Kati Graha denotes a group of symptoms characterized by the restriction of movements of Kati (lumbar) region in which pain would be a main feature as Graha alternatively means pain as restriction is said to produce pain in the particular region. The backache or lumbago is one of conditions which results from violation of bio mechanics of spine as it results when the physical and mental strain and faulty postures alter anthropometrical precision. As the back pain is very subjective in nature, there are very few objectives finding in history, clinical examination and even on extensive radiological or laboratory investigation. Hence, there is a need to frame a protocol for evaluating the etiopathogenesis of Katigraha through various Nidanas like Aharaja, Viharaja, Manasika and Kalaja Nidanas.

Keywords: Katigaraha, Low bachache, Aharaja Nidana, Viharaja Nidana, Manasika Nidana, Kalaja Nidana.
