Ayurveda gives complete cure of pain and associated symptoms.

Pain, numbness and weakness that affects hand, thumb or finger and radiating pain into the arm; these are the conditions of carpel tunnel syndrome, which is one of the major problems during your working carrier mainly for IT professionals, housewives, teachers.

Scientific Ayurveda

Around the world there is a concept that Ayurveda, a type of old treatment with local remedies. Critics always points out the words ‘ITS UNSCIENTIFIC, WITH NO PROOF'.

Ayurveda answers its critics by giving scientific proof on blood picture and MRI

Here we are discussing one of the many cases we had in our hospital.
Mrs Joshy Mathew came to our hospital with radiating pain of leg starting from hip, travelling down to legs and foot. She also had complaints of knee pain, mainly right knee and radiating pain of both arms and numbness of hands.

On her MRI
  • Broad based disc prolapse over C5 – C6 narrowing neural foramina with compression of exiting nerve roots
  • Disc protrusion at C3-C4, C4-C5
  • Cervical bony canal stenosis at C5-C6
  • Disc dehydration at L3-L4,  L4-L5, L5-S1
  • L3-L4 mild diffuse bulging
  • L4-L5 diffuse bulge with narrowing of neural foramina and nerve root compression
  • L5-S1 disc prolapsed . post central and right foraminal protrusion leading to indention over thecal sac and narrowing of right neural foramina with nerve root compression

This was a challenging case. Since the lady was in her early forties, the condition makes her unable to do her household works.

We started with internal medicines for two weeks and the patient got some relief from the pain and numbness.
Then we plan for admitting the patient and slowly started ayurvedic external treatment modalities.

At first the body responded with increase in her symptoms, but gradually the whole subsided and we were able to the perform all the therapeutic methods along with internal medicines and mild physiotherapy.

She was admitted for 21 days and after the treatment 80% of her symptoms subsided.

We performed all the clinical evaluations and the patient was tolerable to all tests.

We advice rest for two more months after the treatment, during this period only internal medicines were advised.

After 2 months we took the MRI and the images tells the truth how great and systematic is Ayurveda and its medicines.

From Wheel Chair To Running Feet.

Mr K Arumugam, 51yrs, Gasco Ruwais, Abudabi, UAE came to me on wheel chairs. He was unable to stand or walk and suffering from acute pain radiating to left leg, the pain aggravated for the last four months.

While getting deep into the case, it became clear to me that the complaints started eight years back; at first it was a slight pain on low back region, for this he had undergone allopathic management and had some physiotherapy, he got slight relief, but the pain was aggravating and was not able to walk freely.

This made him to take MRI scan of his lumbosacral spine, and the result suggest
  • annular tear and left paracentral disc protrusion at L5-SI level indentting with thecal sac and exiting nerve root.
  • Left posterolateral disc protrusion of L3-L4 level causing compression of neural foramen,
  • disc bulge at L4-L5 level causing compression of bilateral neural foramen.
The condition again became worse while lifting weight, and he was unable to move; surgery was advised but he refused and was admitted at our hospital on 23rd December 2009.

It was very unpleasant feeling watching a healthy man sitting in wheel chair, this was a challenging case and on physical examination, all gradients were elevated, this was a case which needs round the clock attention.

We took the case and preliminary external treatment modalities were started with mild swedana procedures (sudative), internal medicines were given to reduce the muscle spasm and internal inflammatory response, it was a waiting game but his body started to give quick response to the treatment.

On the 8th day he started standing and was able to take few steps, his hip and lower back was supported with bandages and different types of oil sudative procedures like patrapotala swedam, choorna pinda swedam were carefully done.

The results were very pleasing and he started walking without any pain on the 19th day then the important muscle strengthening treatment shashtika pinda swedam made him walk freely, this was one of the most pleasing moments in a doctors carrier, when someone came on wheel chair walking freely in front of him without any pain or numbness while getting discharged.
