Introduction

 Many people suffer from pain especially the lower back but the reason is age, trauma (abhighat),  vata prakopak ahara,  unbalanced movement but in this case, there is no above history.

 Discussion 

 The treatment was decided on the basis of the predominance of vata. Vijaya has  Anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties and also Deepan, pachan and combination in Trailokya Vijaya Vati are vata-shamak, Deepen paachan and potent analgesic so the drug is useful in painful etiologies.  Rasnasaptak quath is neuroprotective properties and has an affinity towards muscular- skeleton system so it enhances vata shaman and relieving pain.

Maha Yograj Google is excellent vata shamak and Bruhan Kalpa and useful in musculoskeletal and joint pain. Gokshur helps to kledavahan it helps to reduce swelling. We all know that Basti is the best line of treatment for vata. Basti produces shodhana, shamanand brihan effects in the body. Dashmool are best in expelling the morbid dosha are used in the form of basti, definitely, it produces shodhana effect.

Conclusion

This case study shows that chronic pain can easily manage with Trailokya Vijaya Vati gives excellent results in a short duration. More studies need to be encouraged to collect strong scientific evidence to support such cases and with the help of Ayurveda, especially the Panchakarma process means Basti gives relief with autoimmune conditions also. The best part of Trailokya Vijaya Vati gives pain relief which provides a time window for dosha-dhatu pachana for preparation of Basti.
