Pain Management

“Owch its Paining “ this is the most popular complaint everybody is facing. There were a lot of methods for pain management. It may be occur at any stage of life, with varying intensity and may can occur at any location, at any person without any age barrier.

Many people have a false belief that Ayurveda is no good in times of acute pain, Ayurvedic medicines should only be consumed in chronic illnesses and it always gives very slow results but the thing is they are unaware of the wonder management. Here are the various ways to kill pain.


Generally shoola refers to any type of pain. Shoola can appear as roopa or upadrava of a disease. Shoola and roga both have same meaning i.e., pain giving.

Shoola is classified as swatantra shoola & paratantra shoola.  Paratantra shoola is considered as updrava of a disease. Swatantra soola is defined as a vyadhi itself.

PROGNOSIS OF SHOOLA “Ekadoshothida saadhyaha…….” (M.N.26.14)

•  Shoola produced by the increase of any one of the dosa is easily curable,

•  That produced by the combination of any two dosas is curable with difficulty,

•  That produced by the combination of all the three dosas, that which is very severe and associated with many complications is impossible to cure.


The concept of pain management is a big domain, so the treatment protocol varies accordingly.  Some may get relieved with internal medications but some with external therapies. Some type of pain may persist for a long time but some other may relieved fastly.

The management of pain should be based on all these characters like frequency, location, age, duration, intensity and also the associated symptoms.
