Abstract

AN ANATOMICAL INTERPRETATION OF KRIKATIKA MARMA AND ITS CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE

*Dr. Abhishek Sharma and Dr. Shyoram Sharma

.

Abstract

Sharir Rachana is a branch of Ayurveda that provides a detailed description of the structures in the human body. Marma points are vital points in the body that are constituted by the confluence of Mamsa, Sira, Snayu, Asthi, and Sandhi. Manipulating and stimulating Marmas in a proper manner improves the flow of Prana (life force) in the body. Introduction: Krikatika Marma, a vital point in Ayurveda, holds significant importance due to its anatomical location in the neck region. Methods: This review synthesizes information from classical Ayurvedic texts and contemporary medical literature to explore the anatomical interpretation and clinical significance of Krikatika Marma. Results: Anatomically, Krikatika Marma is situated at the cranio cervical junction. It encompasses essential structures such as blood vessels, nerves, and the thyroid gland. Clinical conditions associated with Krikatika Marma include cervical spondylosis, thyroid disorders, nerve impingement syndromes, and vascular abnormalities. Discussion: Proper understanding of Krikatika Marma's anatomical correlation aids in the diagnosis and treatment of neck-related disorders. Therapeutic practices like Marma Chikitsa utilize stimulation of Krikatika Marma to alleviate pain, improve circulation, and promote overall well-being. Conclusion: Integrating traditional Ayurvedic knowledge with modern medical understanding enhances our ability to address neck-related health issues comprehensively. Further research is needed to validate the therapeutic efficacy of Krikatika Marma and explore its potential applications in contemporary medicine.

Keywords: Marma, Krikatika marma, cranio-cervical junction, atalanto-occipital joint Marma chikitsa, Yoga.
