Ayurved, ‘the science of life’ had a golden time some centuries back. It was in oblivion till it was brought to the present era as a revival. In ancient India, this system was the only prevalent one which could help the ailing humanity. The present era is an era of new inventions and the modern science has struck the minds of all by its day to day developments. It is true the modern science that grown up considerably; still it has to face a big question mark in so far as some miserable problems are concerned. The topic of this synopsis is one among them.

          The basic difference between the living and non living is the ability to move from one place to another and it is hampered when an individual suffers from pain. A change in life style and food habits along with increased possibilities of daily injuries (even in micro level) affects every system of human body including the Musculo SkeletalandNervous System.

          The disorders affecting the locomotors system are increasingly seen in present era. These conditions considerably reduce the human activity in terms of social and professional life. Among such disorders Ayurvedic classics have described a severe debilitating disease in the name of Grudhrasi.

           Grudhrasi mentioned in Ayurveda explains one such disorder where in pain starts from  Sphika pradesa and radiates downwards to Kati, Prusta ,Uru, Janu, Jangha and the patient is unable to walk properly. In modern parlance this type of radiating pain can be compared  to Sciatica.

A variety of vatavyadhies described in Charaka Samhita are divided into samanyaja and nanatmaja. Grudhrasicomes under 80 types of nanatmaja vatavyadhies. The knowledge of this condition, to the modern medical science is just two centuries old, while this condition is known to Ayurved since last five thousand years.

The importance of back pain in world is underscored by the following:

1) The annual societal cost of back pain is much more.

2) It is most common cause of disability in patients under 45 years of age.

3) 50% of working adults, in one survey, admitted to having a back injury each year many are chronically disabled because of back pain.

4) According to a survey, low back pain is extraordinarily common, and second only to the common cold.

5) Lifetime prevalence of low back pain ranges from 60 to 90% and an annual incidence of 5%.

6) Prevalence of sciatica ranges from 11 to 40%.2

As the line of treatment in classics sequential administration of the Vatashamaka oral medicine, Snehana, Swedan, Basti, Siravyadha and Agnikarma are lines of treatment of Grudhrasi. So many drugs are described in Ayurvedic classics and their therapeutic effect in Grudhrasiis yet to be explored.

Though many works are conducted regarding this disease, the search for a better and economically more viable option is still going on. Thus an attempt will be made to find out an effective, safe herbal combination for the treatment of this disease.
