Abstract

AN OBSERVATIONAL STUDY ON THE ASSOCIATION OF LOW BACK PAIN AND MID-LINE FISSURE IN TONGUE

R. Saranya*, G. J. Christian, S. Elansekaran and M. Ramamoorthy

ABSTRACT

In Siddha system of medicine, “tongue” is well-regarded as one of the
most significant diagnostic tool for a wide number of diseases. Since
the tongue is a mirror of our body and it is a hypothetical point, the
midline fissure (MLF) in tongue may reflect the disorders of midline
structures in the body. In ancient Siddha literature by Sage Agasthiyar,
the presence of fissure in tongue is described as an indicator of
derranged vatha humour. This observational study was conducted
among 3 groups of patients to observe and analyse the clinical
presentation of patients having mid-line fissure in tongue and thereby
to evolve significant diagnostic clue from tongue examination. Group
I, included 100 cases with mid-line fissure in tongue and their clinical presentation was
observed and documented. Group II consisted of 30 patients with low back ache [without any
major illness] and were observed for the presence of midline fissure. In Group III (control
group) 50 general patient population irrespective of their diseases were studied for the
presence of midline fissure and associated symptoms. All the results were documented and
the strength of association of midline fissure and low back pain (LBP) was statistically
analyzed by using Odds ratio and were also represented graphically. From this preliminary
effort it has been evident of an association between Mid-line fissure & low back ache
condition.

Keywords: Siddha, Mid line fissure, Eightfold examination, Tongue fissure.
