Sprains Treatment – Useful Herbs for Sprains and Muscular Cramps

Sprains are caused when a particular muscle of the body is suddenly overexerted. It is felt as a sharp pain, rendering that portion of the body immobile for a while. Sprains can cause redness and swelling of the region and can persist for a few days if they are too acute. In very severe cases, sprains can lead to permanent muscular pains and even disfigurement.

The Vyaana vata, which is a sub-dosha of the vata is responsible for all voluntary movements of the body. When this biological force is vitiated, then sprains occur. Sprains normally occur in the leg muscles, since these are more subjected to movement. They can also occur in the back or the neck muscles. Sprains that are confined to the leg muscles are called as Pindi kodveshtana, while sprains that can spread over the entire body are known as Khalli vata.
