*Dr. Vivek Singh Patel
Man has eventually forgotten the absolute enjoyment and solitary affection for nature, and as a result he is facing many health problems. The prime factors that are responsible for the decline of health are irregular food habits, stress, suppression of natural urges, lack of proper sleep and relaxation. Sciatica pain is often caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve from a herniated disc, bone spurs or muscle spasm. Sciatica being considered as a chronic disease needs a long lasting treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxant and analgesics. The symptoms similarity and radiation of pain from back to the foot describe the correlation of sciatica with Gridrasi.
