Abstract

CLINICAL EVALUATION OF SIRAVEDHA IN THE MANAGEMENT OF GRIDHRASI W.S.R TO SCIATICA

Dr. Jitender Kumar Rana*

ABSTRACT

Gridhrasi is a frequently encountered problem in the present era produced commonly due to the changed life style. Sciatica is characterized by severe pain which starts in the back and radiates down one or both lower limb. It is prevalent all over the world. On the basis of the symptoms, Sciatica can be correlated with Gridhrasi in Ayurveda. Gridhrasi is included in Vataja Nanatmaja vyadhi and also considered as a maharoga by acharya Charaka. In all Ayurveda classics, the description of the diseases is available, but Sushruta, the father of surgery has described all the details about the disease. Acharya Sushruta described Siravedha in the management of Gridhrasi. In the present study, Siravedha is selected for Gridhrasi. The present study was carried out on clinical evaluation of Siravedha in the management of Gridhrasi as cited by Sushruta in the context of management of Gridhrasi. For the study 30 patients were randomly selected from OPD and IPD of Jammu institute of Ayurveda and research hospital, Raipur Nardani Jammu. It was single blind clinical study to evaluate the efficacy of Siravedha by subjective and objective criteria i.e. Ruk, Toda, Sthambha, Muhuspandanam, Aruchi, Tandra, Gaurava SLR angle and walking time. The study revealed that, there were significant results found in Gridhrasi by Siravedha. It destroyed the Avarana (obstruction) which helped in normal movement of Vata and therefore restored the normal circulation and function of Vata. Ultimately; it reduced pain, pricking sensation, stiffness, tingling sensation, heaviness and quick relief of symptoms. It was simple economical and highly effective procedure without producing any adverse effects.

Keywords: Gridhrasi, Siravedha, Sciatica, Ayurveda.
