Abstract
Aim: To assess and compare the effectiveness of Salavana Upanaha Sweda with and without Parisheka on spasticity in children with cerebral palsy. Materials and methods: 75 diagnosed cases of Spastic Cerebral Palsy were selected for the study based on the diagnostic criteria and inclusion criteria, later divided into two groups - Parisheka Upanaha group (PUG) and Upanaha group (UG). The subjects in PUG was administered both Parisheka and Upanaha while those in UG with Upanaha only. The duration of study was 90 days, in consecutive 3 sittings of 15 days each with gap of another 15 days. Results: Both the groups showed effect in reducing Spasticity at the level of p<0.05. Conclusion: Even though both groups were found to be effective in reducing Spasticity based on objective and subjective parameters, better effect was seen in Upanaha along with Parisheka group (PUG) when compared to the Upanaha alone group (UG).
