Symptoms initially affect Sphik as well as posterior aspect of Kati and then gradually radiates to posterior aspects of Uru, Janu, Jangha and Pada. In the Chikitsa Sutra of Gridhrasi Acharya Charaka, Sushruta, Vagbhatta, Yogratnakara and Bhela have mentioned Siraa Vyadhana why because Siraa Vyadhana removes Avarana as well as vitiated Doshas through Raktha and it also helps in decrease the pain. Dushya (Rakthadhi) should be treated and in turn Dosha (Vaatadhi) can be brought to normalcy. In Saakhanusari (Chronic) condition Siraa Vyadhana is very effective. In present era quick pain relief is of prime importance to resume normal activities. Hence Siraa Vyadhana is considered as instant reliever of pain.
