Context: Gridhrasi has been mentioned under the spectrum of Vatavyadhi in Ayurveda texts. The clinical presentation in Gridhrasi is very similar to sciatica. Lumbar disc degeneration is one of the common causes of sciatica. Aim: This clinical study was carried out to judge the effectiveness of Brimhana Ksheera Basti (medicated enema) with Guggulu Tiktaka Ghrita in lumbar disc degeneration induced Gridhrasi (sciatica). Settings and Design: This was an open-labeled single arm interventional clinical study. Materials and Methods: Fifteen diagnosed cases of lumbar disc degeneration induced sciatica were registered from the outpatient and inpatient departments of All India Institute of Ayurveda, New Delhi, India, and Brimhana Ksheera Basti with Guggulu Tiktaka Ghrita was administered followed by oral administration of Ashwagandha and Shatavari Choorna. Statistical Analysis: The data were statistically analyzed using paired t test. Results: Highly significant (P < 0.001) result was found in all the assessment parameters, namely pain, stiffness, and straight leg raise. Conclusion: Brimhana Ksheera Basti with Guggulu Tiktaka Ghrita followed by oral administration of Ashwagandha and Shatavari Choorna is an effective treatment method for reliable and successful management of Gridhrasi (sciatica) induced by lumbar disc degeneration.
