Abstract

ROLE OF PURVA KARMA IN MANAGEMENT OF CEREBRAL PALSY DUE TO BRAIN INSULT

Gupta Shilpy*, Upadhyay PS, Singh BM

ABSTRACT

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of disorder rather than specific diseases which is presented by a nonprogressive impairment of movement and posture resulting from brain injury or anomaly occurring in early development. Severely affected children with CP cannot be completely cured but often capabilities and quality of life can be improved with the available treatment. The goal of treatment is to assist children with cerebral palsy for developing their full potential by considering specific Purvakarma therapy. A total 20 children of both sex, age in between 1 to10 years, having history of perinatal asphyxia and associated periventricular leucomalacia were enrolled after considering the exclusion, inclusion criteria. Diagnosis of each enrolled case was based on perinatal history, clinical manifestation and investigations. Snehana with Mahanarayana oil followed by Shastishali Pinda Sweda along with oral medication, was given for 21 days. Overall pre and post therapy improvement was observed, assessed and recorded in each case as per various scoring systems e.g. Modified Ashworth Scale, Teacher’s Drool Scale etc on preformed format. The result of this therapy was observed highly significant when compared with the response of prior management of CP patients during the same given period.

Keywords: Cerebral Palsy, Perinatal Asphyxia, Purvakarma, Snehan, Swedan.
