It is a painful neuro muscular disorder, posing serious threat to the quality of life of most productive group of population in today's India. It indicates typical gait that resembles with a 'Gridhra'. The cardinal signs and symptoms of Gridhrasi are Ruka (pain), Toda (pricking sensation), Stambha (stiffness) and Muhurspandan in the Sphika, Kati, Uru, Janu, Jangha and Pada in order and restricted lifting of the legs. In Kaphanubandha, Tandra, Gaurav, Arochaka are present. The signs and symptoms seen in 'Gridhrasi' have resemblence with that of disorder 'Sciatica' in modern science. It is a very painful condition in which pain begins in lumbar region and radiates along the posterio-lateral aspect of thigh and leg. In the present study, total 45 patients of Gridhrasi were registered and divided into two groups. Patients of Group A were given Parijata Vati orally and in Group B, Parijata Vati was administered with Local Abhyanga and Nadi Swedana. Out of 45 patients, 36 completed the total course of treatment. Most of the patients responded favourably to the treatment in both groups, but better relief was observed in group B.
