The main pathological factors in the development of this disease are Ama and Vata. Clinically it can be correlated to Rheumatoid Arthritis. Due to present lifestyle, prevalence of Amavata is increasing. The present study comprised of 60 patients, divided in three groups, each containing 20 patients, Group A (n=20) were given Shigru TwakKwath, Group B (n=20) were given Simhanad Guggul and Group C (n=20) were given Nimesulide for one month. On analysis of the results, it was found that Shigru Twak Kwath provided better results as compared to Simhanad Guggul and Nimesulide in management of Amavata. The therapy with Shigru Twak Kwath not only helps in reducing the signs and symptoms of Amavata but also corrects the pathogenesis of Amavata. In conclusion comparison of therapies i.e. Shigru Twak Kwath, Sinhanad Guggul and tablet Nimesulide revealed that Shigru Twak Kwath in all respects proved to be a better choice in the treatment of Amavata patients.
