ABSTRACT

Background -Disc herniation can occur in any disc of the spine, but cervical and lumbar spine are most vulnerable, the latter being 15 times more common than the former.[1] It is an important reason of morbidity and loss of work hours thus asking for an effective para surgical treatment. 'Hijama Cupping'- an innovative method of Raktamokshan, is a potential cure for Lumbar Disc Herniation. Aim- To evaluate efficacy of 'Hijama Cupping' in the treatment of Lumbar Disc Herniation. Materials And Methods 24 patients of both sex and of age group 20 to 40 years with symptomatic lumbar disc herniation were treated with 4 sessions of 'Hijama Cupping' at an interval of 7 days. The outcome was evaluated on 3 criteria viz. Pain, Tenderness and Straight Leg Rising Test. Before and after treatment scores were statistically compared. Improvement of more than 75% was considered as Cure, that of 50 to 75% as Markedly Improved, that of 25 to 50% as improved and that of less than 25% as Unchanged. Statistical Analysis Data was analyzed using Wilcoxon Matched Pairs test. A level of P<0.05 was considered statistically significant.
