Most patients visit a doctor primarily because they are in pain. All physical ailments that cause pain are caused by vata. Vataja nanatmaja vyadhi, of which pain is a primary symptom, includes gridhrasi in its effects on the locomotor system. As a result of excruciating pain, the patients walk resembles that of a Gridhrasi, as suggested by the term itself. Walking becomes difficult for the patient because to acute shooting pain in Gridhrasi that originates in the sphik pradesha and spreads to the kati, prusta, uru, janu, jangha, and pada. One or both lower limbs may be affected by the back pain that radiates downward. Gridhrasi is comparable to the illness sciatica in contemporary science based on its symptoms. It is characterized by sciatic nerve distribution pain and is brought on by irritation of the spinal nerve. According to statistics, lumbar disc prolapse-related low back pain and radiating pain are major global causes of morbidity. Sciatica is more common than 40% and low back pain is 50–70% common throughout life. It disrupts the patients everyday schedule and way of life in general. With the limited availability of surgical treatments, only symptomatic care using analgesics such as NSAIDs is possible in modern medical research.The surgical techniques have numerous restrictions and come at a high cost. Ayurveda employs Bheshaja, Snehana, Swedana, Siravedha, Agnikarma, and basti among other techniques to cure Gridhrasi. One of these para-surgical techniques that is quick acting, easy to use, safe, and inexpensive is agnikarma. A feeble attempt is made to describe Agnikarmas function in Gridhrasi in the current study.
