Apabahuka is one among the vata vyadhi caused due to the vitiated vata and kapha dosha, which affects the routine activities of patients like combing, bathing, etc. commonly seen in the patients with sedentary work as well as heavy field workers. Symptoms of Apabahuka can be correlated with Adhesive capsulitis, also known as Frozen Shoulder. Incidence of this is seen in 3-5% of people in the general population and up to 20% in people with diabetes, peak incidence is more common in women between the age group of 40-60 years. Management of vata vyadhi includes snehana, swedana, and mrudu shodhana also holds good for Apabahuka based on vyadhi avastha. Contemporary management includes Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)and corticosteroids etc aimed of relieving pain. Upanaha sweda being indicated in vata-kapha-associated conditions of vata vyadhi helped in the symptomatic management of the patients which acts as shoolahara, shothahara, stambhahara & also improves range of movements of particular joint affected. Hence the study conducted was a consecutive case series done on an In-Patient Department(IPD) basis for 7 days to study the pre-effect and post-effect of the treatment regimen in Apabahuka patients with Diabetes. The objective of the study is to review the effect of Upanaha Sweda on patients of Apabahuka with diabetes.
