Lumbar Spondylosis is more prevalent among the middle-aged and elderly, which affects both the genders equally. Lower back pain is estimated at 60% to 70% in industrialized countries. Ayurveda has mentioned Panchakarma therapies for the treatment of Katigraha. Hence, an effort has been made to evaluate the efficacy of Katidhara and Basti procedure along with Shamana Chikitsa in the management of the Katigraha.
