Abstract

A REVIEW ARTICLE ON MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY AND ITS MANAGEMENT THROUGH AYURVEDA

Dr. Mukesh Kumar Meena*

ABSTRACT

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most common muscular dystrophy caused by the absence of dystrophin gene. It is an X-linked inherited disorder without involvement of nervous system, progressive degeneration of group of muscle characterized by mildly delayed motor milestones, slow and progressive muscle weakness start presenting soon after the age of 3 years. Severe weakness and wasting occurs in proximal muscles of lower limbs. The Incidence of Duchenne muscular dystrophy is 1 in 3500 live male. Most common cause of death in DMD is cardiomyopathy and respiratory insufficiency. In modern medicine no successful therapy for treating DMD cases except corticosteroid‟s i.e. Deflazacort. Muscular dystrophy cannot be directly co-related with any single disease in Ayurvedic texts. It can be correlated to Vata vyadhi in Ayurvedic text. In Ayurveda muscular dystrophy may be clearly understood by the concept of Adhi bala pravritta vyadhi here the pathogenesis occurs due to the Beeja bhagavayava dusti which leads to Mamsa vata dushti. The present review article reveals highlights on various Ayurvedic medicines along with Panchkarma (Snehan, SSPS, and Basti karma) therapy for treatment and prevention of muscular dystrophy.

Keywords: Muscular dystrophy, dystrophin, Adhi bala pravritta vyadhi, Panchkarma.
