Abstract

Sciatica refers to pain that travels along the path of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve travels from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and down each leg. Sciatica most often occurs when a herniated disk or an overgrowth of bone puts pressure on part of the nerve. This causes inflammation, pain and often some numbness in the affected leg. According to ayurveda this condition can be correlated to gridhrasi in which pain radiates from low back to lower limb and patient walks like a vulture(gridhra). The modern line of treatment is mainly surgical consisting of laminectomy, discectomy, which is expensive & has chances of recurrence. So Ayurvedic treatment with vaitharana vasthi[1] and Majjabasti[2] was tried. A case report- 35 yr old male patient presented with low backache pain radiating down in left lower limb, tingling numbness and antalgic gait since last 8 to 10 days. He was treated with Vaitharana vasthi and Majjavasthi. Vaitharana Vasthi prepared with 48 g Amli, 24g Guda, 12 g saindhava, 192 ml gomutra, 100ml tila taila as metionted in chakradatha Niruhadhikara administered for 7 days. Majjabasti (100ml) prepared from aja majja & saindhava administerd after morning meals for 16 days (kalabasti kram) along with sarvang snehna & swedana. The contents of Vaitarana vasti is having laghu ruksha usna tikshna guna which are helpful in relieving srotodushti caused by kapha avarana. Thus vaitaran vasti alleviates soola, anaha and ama.[3] After a course of 7 days of vaitaran vasti the condition of patient become more kevala vatika and less kaphaja. So for vataharatwa and dhatu poshana, majja vasti as kaal vasti were given. Majja the most guru among chatu Sneha is brimhana and dhatu poshana. Thus majjavasti nourishes majja dhatu at the lumbo sacral region providing the patient with healthy vertebrae and intervertebral discs. Improvement was seen regarding symptoms lowback ache, tingling numbness, walking pattern changed to normal.

Keywords: Vaitharanavasthi, Majjabasti, Gridhrasi, Avaranachikitsa, Majjadhatukshaya, lankhan, Brimhan, Sciatica.
