Abstract

Nowadays due to sedentary lifestyle and lack of time, people cannot concentrate on their proper regimen and people undergo many unwanted practices like faulty dietary habits, improper sitting posture, continuous work in one posture and overexertion, load bearing movements during travelling and sports. All these factors lead to the increase in the incidents of Manyasthambha in a large population. In classics Manyasthambha is explained under Vataja Nanatmaja Vikaras and is mentioned as Kaphaavruta Vata in its Samprapthi. While explaining treatment of Manyasthambha, Acharya Susruta clearly explains about Rooksha Sweda and Nasya which helps in the Samprapti Vighatana of Avarana in Manyasthambha.
