Ayurveda is the ancient medical science of India. It has been used since thousands of years to cure the diseases and to maintain the health. It is the ocean of the miraculous remedies for the many difficult entities in medical science. Having no advanced technology, the ancient experts like Sushruta explained the conditions using their senses only and identified them well. They found out remedies for all those conditions.
With the help of advanced technology, it has become possible to diagnose the diseases accurately. But researchers are still fighting for the effective remedies available for all. In case of pain management, a good progress has been made to manage the acute pains. But in case of chronic pain it is difficult to avoid the problem of the adverse effects of long term use of medicines. Frozen shoulder is one of the conditions which are prevalent all over the world. The condition is self limiting in 1-2 yrs and may affect one or both shoulders. But during the course it is very distressing. Modern science offers a combination of NSAIDs, steroids, physiotherapies and operative intervention depending on the severity of the condition. It was thought to search for an effective remedy in Ayurveda and agnikarma was found to be promising. A clinical trial was performed and the results are presented in this communication.
