Separator

INTRODUCTION

Ayurvedic Management of sciatica– Due to job profiles and other reasons now a days back pain is very common but its prevalence varies according to the definitions used and the population studied. A large study reported an incidence of 28.0 episodes per 1000 persons per year and for low back pain with Ayurvedic Management of sciatica an incidence of 11.6 per 1000 persons per year. Low back pain affects men a little more than women and is most frequent in the working population, with the highest incidence seen in those aged 2-64 years.

Modern medicine is having no specific treatment especially for sciatica that’s why an elaborate study has been undertaken to have an in depth knowledge about the concept of sciatica in Ayurveda terms.

As the disease has not been described elaborately as other diseases, just under vat vyadhi it has summerised in Ayurveda classics.

Ayurveda categorized Gridhrasi as one of diseases caused by vitiation of Vata (one of the principle dosha in the body, responsible for the movement and functionality of the body).

Two types are mainly described as

Vataj
Vat Kafaj
Ayurvedic treatments for Gridhrasi concentrate on bringing back the aggravated Vata or Vata Kapha to the state of equilibrium and thereby to the state of health.

Following plan was decided to follow

Deepan Pachan

To regulate fire element, (Pcahak Agni) deepan pachan is necessary.

Anuloman

As patient was suffering from constipation, Anuloman was necessary.

Mharasnadi kashay was used along with the Erand oil, so that it will also help out for betterment of Vat dosha.

Vyadhi Pratyaynik Aoushadhi

After Deepan, Pacahan and Anuloman vyadhi pratyaynik medicines were used.

  1. Dashamool kashaym
  2. Yograaj Guggulu
  3. Sameer pannag
  4. PANCHAKARMA

Basti was planned, as it is best karma for all kinds of Vat vyadhi. Also basti is termed as half karma in total Panchakarma.

Anuvasan basti and kashay basti was planned.

All therapies given were Vat anulomak and Vat shamak. To break the pathology internal medications were given, hence Eranada oil gave nourishment to the Asthidhara kala by Upsnehan Nyaya.

Panchakarma helped out to come out of pain. Basti played main role to brek pathology also and to overcome pain also as it is the best therapy for any Vata vikara.

CONCLUSION

Ayurveda brings out better solutions over pain management, and provide healthy way of life.
NADI (PULSE)
Nadi is one of the significant diagnostic tools in Ayurveda. Many vaidyas can diagnose only by examining the pulse of the patient. Index, middle, and ring fingers are placed over the root of the thumb to assess the rate, rhythm, speed, and quality of the Nadi. In Ayurveda, the movement of the pulse is compared to the movements of different animals. Vata pulse is compared to the motion of a leech or snake. Pitta pulse resembles the movement of a sparrow, crow, or frog. Kapha pulse is like that of a swan or pigeon.
MALA (STOOL)
Amount, colour, smell, and consistency of the stool are some of the parameters to assess the doshik predominance. Vata aggravated conditions cause stool to become dry, hard, and blackish in colour. Pitta dominance causes loose or liquid, greenish or yellowish in colour and foul-smelling stools. Kapha in excess causes stool to become bulky, slimy, or with mucus and excess in amount.
MOOTRA (URINE)
Early morning sample of urine is usually taken for mootra pariksha. The first stream of urine after waking up is avoided. Vata aggravated urine is less in amount, has a yellow hint to it, and dries quickly. Pitta aggravated urine is reddish to dark yellowish and produces burning. Kapha dominance causes watery, very white urine. Rakta vitiated urine is presented with blood and is hot.
SHABDA (VOICE)
When Doshas are in a normal state, voice is natural. Vitiated Doshas cause changes in shabda. Vata aggravation causes a hoarse and rough voice. Pitta dominance causes a broken and cracking voice. Kapha aggravation causes the voice to become deep and heavy
SPARSHA (TOUCH)
Hot, cold, smooth, rough, dry, moist skin, oedema, fever, etc. are examined by touch. In Vataj disorders, the skin is dry and rough to touch. In Pittaj disorders, the skin is hot and sweaty. Kaphaj disorders, the skin is moist.
DRIKA (EYE)
Eyes may reflect the health of a patient. Vata aggravation causes eyes to become sunken, dry and squinted. Pitta domination causes redness, burning sensation, and photophobia. Kapha aggravation causes moist, white, watery, lusterless, and heavy eyes.
AAKRITI (BUILD)
Hot, cold, smooth, rough, dry, moist skin, oedema, fever, etc. are examined by touch. In Vataj disorders, the skin is dry and rough to touch. In Pittaj disorders, the skin is hot and sweaty. Kaphaj disorders, the skin is moist.
LAB AND DIAGNOSIS
Along with the ancient Ayurvedic diagnostic tools, we at Sri Vaidya also provide facilities for laboratory tests like blood tests, urine tests, imaging, etc. Laboratory reports and imaging helps the doctor keep track of the health status and prognosis. Moreover, evidence in the form of lab tests is the demand of patients these days.

Any imbalance in these elements gives rise to diseases. While examining you, our doctors will seek detailed answers from you about your lifestyle and health history and prescribe you natural therapies to restore the normal state of your body.
