Effect of Agnikarma therapy on heel pain associated with Calcaneal Spur: A case study
Author(s): Babasaheb Gadve, Kanchan Yadav and Rajesh N Gundre
An essential Ayurvedic parasurgical treatment is agnikarma. Agnikarma, an Ayurvedic treatment, involves applying heat to a specific area of the body to lessen inflammation and, by extension, pain. Since diseases treated with agnikarma never recur, Agni karma are superior to kshara. By harmonising the local vata and kapha dosha, agnikarma delivers immediate, long-lasting, and sustainable relief from chronic or acute pain. The patient, a 45-year-old female, had localised, severe, intermittent heel discomfort that got worse when she exercised like walking or jogging. A big, distinct bony protrusion at the base of the calcaneus in both heels was visible on a lateral X-ray. Agnikarma is a traditional Ayurvedic surgical procedure from ancient India used to relieve ligament discomfort, joint pain.
