Abstract

Vatakantaka is disease of foot and heel with Kantakavat Vedana. Vatakantaka is non fatal common condition which makes life miserable due to pain. When Vata gets vitiated due to walking long distance, excessive strain, walking on uneven surface, the vitiated Vata dosha gets accumulated in Khuddal pradesha (ankle) and causes pain as if pricked by thorn. Hence termed as Vatakantaka. Vatakantaka can be co-related to Calcaneal spur in modern parlance. Calcaneal spur is a pointed bony growth on calcaneus bone. The incidence of calcaneal spur in normal population is 15.5%. And in South Indian population it is 59% of which 60% are female. Here 10 cases of Vatatakantaka vis-a-vis Calcaneal spur were subjected to Dashamula Churna Pinda Sweda for 7 days, followed by Nirgundi Guggulu for 30 days. Patients showed significant results in subjective and objective parameters.
