Efficient pain management has always been a hurdle. A pain-free life is the longing of everyone. Pain may be due to many pathologies. It may be either acute or chronic. It may be originating from muscle, tendon, ligament, joint, bones etc. Few of them are osteoarthritis/degenerative joint disorder, spondylosis etc. Agnikarma is a thermal, minimally invasive parasurgical procedure for all these kinds of pain. This involves the creation of controlled, pointed, therapeutic burns over the most tender part of the painful region.

Metallic pointed instrument - Agnikarma shalaka
Agnikarma at the most tender point in low back ache
Agnikarma for heel pain after confirmation of growth of osteophyte(spur) through X-ray

Why Agnikarma?

  • Simple and safe
  • Suits Muscle/tendon/ligament/joint/bone pain(musculoskeletal pain)
  • Cost-effective
  • Daycare procedure - No hospital stay
  • Routine unaffected  
  • Drugless therapy(without medicines)*
  • No side effects if performed skillfully and technically
  • Effective results in 2-4 weeks* on an average(1 sitting per week)
  • Avoids/postpones surgery
  • Made in India

Indications -  Arthritis, Degenerative joint disorder, Calcaneal spur(heel pain), Achilles tendon, Ankle pain, Low back ache, Sciatica, Neck pain, Knee pain, Sports injury, Tennis elbow, Golfer's elbow, Post fracture residual pain, Migraine, Frozen shoulder, Carpel tunnel syndrome

How it works?

Pain is an entity caused mainly due to abnormal Vata Dosha. Agnikarma acts directly on Vata Kapha Dosha mitigating the causative factor of pain. Thus, pain is reduced significantly with lowest recurrence rates. Agnikarma is performed by a special pointed metallic instrument known as Shalaka. This is heated and applied on the most tender points marked with a marker. As per research on Agnikarma, there is a transfer of heat energy (Proton-neutron-electron theory). Apart from this, the following local effects can be seen such as:

  1. Improves local blood circulation
  2. Stimulation of regional nerves
  3. Increases tissue metabolism  
  4. Decreases infection
  5. Stimulation of local inflammatory response(temporarily)
  6. Reduces joint stiffness
  7. Muscle relaxation
