Dr. Shrikant Wakudkar*, Dr. S. R. Giri and Dr. Vineet Kini

ABSTRACT

Katigatvata is a Vatvyadhi, Vatvyadhi has been described in classical text Charak Samhita.[1] It has been correlated in present study with Lumbar Spondylosis due to similarity in clinical manifestation and pathogenesis. Lumbar Spondylosis is a common age related degenerative condition in the area of lumbar spine with gradual formation of bony overgrowth (osteophytes) predominantly those at anterior, lateral and less commonly posterior aspects of the superior and inferior margins of vertebral bodies.[2] Low Back Pain affects approximately 60-85% of adults during some point in their lives. Lumbar Spondylosis is responsible for about 10% of all the back pain conditions means that Lumbar Spondylosis affects 7% of population.[3] As of 2005, lower backpain ranks as number one cause of disability in individuals under the age of 45 years. There is no satisfactory treatment for lumbar spondylosis in modern medicine. In medicine, analgesic drug is used which gives temporarily relief. Surgical treatment has lots of side effect, it will be dangerous to patient’s life and also patient may cause paralysis after surgery.[4] In Ayurveda Acharya Sushruta said that Agnikarma and viddhakarma is better than any other treatment in Ayurveda.[5]
