ABSTRACT

Pada-kantaka is a pathological condition caused by the vitiated vata and kapha. Aggravated vata takes ashraya in gulfa sandhi & padatala leading to the development of Pada-kantaka. As per the textual references available in Ayurveda, the clinical features of Plantar fasciitis can be accurately related with Pada-kantaka. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of chronic pain beneath the heel in adults. It is estimated that 1 in 10 people develop Plantar Fasciitis during their lifetime. Though frequent association with calcaneal spur in radiological findings is noted, still the degenerative process of plantar fascia is to be considered the main underlying pathology of Plantar Fasciitis. Rest, NSAIDs with physiotherapy is the first line of management followed by local injection of steroid are administered in most of cases for immediate relief. So an effort has been made to evaluate the efficacy of plantar Iontophoresis with aqueous solution of Guggulu resin in the management of Pada-kantaka (plantar fasciitis). Plantar Iontophoresis with aqueous solution of Guggulu resin yielded overall relief of 83.81%.

Keywords: Aqueous solution of Guggulu Resin, Iontophoresis, Plantar fasciitis.
