Abstract

A CASE STUDY ABOUT THE EFFECT OF PANCHATIKTA KSHEERA BASTI IN THE MANAGEMENT OF ASTHIKSHAYA

*Dr. Vipin Kumar and Dr. Sonu

ABSTRACT

Ayurvedic description of Asthikshaya closely resembles with osteoporosis of modern science. A male patient aged 55 years was admitted in IPD of Panchakarma with complaints of bilateral knee joint pain, swelling, stiffness, restricted movements, general weakness since 6 months. It was a diagnosed case of Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and micro architectural deterioration of bone tissue, with a consequent increase in bone fragility and susceptibility to fracture. Modern medicines have its own limitations in treating osteoarthritis and have many adverse effects with its prolonged use. Now is the period of joint replacement surgery, but due to some underlying systemic illness, financial burden it is not possible for all patients to go for surgical interventions. Hence Ayurveda which is well known for treating chronic diseases and providing a safe therapy having no side effect, is proved a noble management for treating Osteoporosis. In this study Panchatikta Ksheera Basti was selected for the management of Osteoporosis. Basti Chikitsa is considered as half the treatment for Vata dominated diseases. As Basti is known for its Vata Shamaka properties, proved better in the management of osteoporosis (Asthikshaya). Panchatikta Ksheer Basti had shown marked improvement in all parameters i.e. pain and swelling was reduced, stiffness reduced, gait improved, range of movements increased.

Keywords: Asthikshaya, Osteoarthritis, Panchatikta Ksheer Basti, Vata.
