Abstract

Pain can be described as any physical or mental suffering or discomfort caused by illness or injury. No matter however mild the pain is anywhere in the body it lands person in state of discomfort and affects day to day activities. Pain can present in various ways as throbbing pain in toothache, colic pain which comes in spasm as in renal calculi, muscular pain as in sprain, sport injury and joint pain due to inflammatory condition and many more.

In today’s era musculoskeletal and neuromuscular pain like pain of arthritis, sciatica, lumber spondylosis, migraine, etc are very common. Pain is also categorized as acute or chronic on the basis of duration. Our answer to pain is a pain-killer, which on frequent uses kills our resistance power. Ayurveda explains the origin of pain due to vitiated Vata dosha and once Vata dosha is treated efficiently, the pain subsides automatically. Many people have a false belief that Ayurveda is not good in curing acute pain and Ayurvedic medicines should only be consumed in

chronic pain and it always give very slow result but the thing is they are unaware of the wonderful management of Ayurveda.
