Sachin B. Ban* and Jyoti D. Giri


Ayurveda is the everlasting supreme science of medicine because it deals with promotion of health and curing the diseases. The aim of Medical Science is to provide better health to every human being. To achieve this goal the pathy should be able to eliminate the disease and that to be without any side effects. Agnikarma[1] considered as best for pain relief & management in Ayurveda. The most common form of heel pain is mainly due to Calcaneal Spur. Calcaneal spurs are highly prevalent in Middle age people and causes lot of pain of excruciating type and disability. Agnikarma is done on painful heels (calcaneal spur) by Agni shalaka (Thermal cautery instrument) where temperature can be controlled in between 0-200 degrees and shalaka gets heated up from electricity. In ayurveda calcaneal spur co-related with Vatkantaka.[2] Vata Kantak is one of the Vata Vyadhi[3] which occurs in Gulpha sandhi[4] region. It is characterized by shool (pain) and shoth (Inflammation) in khudak (Heel). In modern science there are injection theraphy, Surgical correction etc seen but which have many side effects as well as recurrence. In ayurvedic literature Kapha vata dushti can be treated by Agnikarma. So, in Vatkantaka I have kept the patient under Agnikarma therapy upto satisfactory level of relief from pain. I have given 5 sittings at the interval of 5 days and the patient got complete relief from pain. Follow up kept for next 2 months.

Keywords: Agnikarma, Calcaneal spur, Vat-kantaka, Kaphavata Dushti, Ayurvedic-Para Surgical Procedure.
