Gridhrasi is an intractable physical complaint, which carries little threat to life but it interferes greatly with living. People, who suffer from this affliction, can't stand or sit properly and the painful limb continuously draws his attention. A similar condition in modern parlance is Sciatic-syndrome or Sciatica. The chances of occurrence are expected to be increasing through the coming years due to the increasing tendency for computerization and also because of the hectic routines resulting in postural abnormalities, increasing body weight, mental stress, unwholesome diet etc., all of which lead to a fertile condition for the occurrence of Gridhrasi. As modern drugs have to be administered continuously for prolonged period, a need arises to search for safer drugs with similar efficacy. In this study, 34 patients received therapy were randomly divided into two groups. In group A -Oral capsule along with Local Abhyanga & Swedana, whereas in Group B Oral capsule & Matra Basti along with Local Abhyanga, Swedana were given. The result of the study shows that group B provided better relief as compared to group A in the management of the disease.
