Cerebral Palsy (Sirakamba vatham) is a non -progressive disorder of posture and movement associated with abnormality of speech, intellect resulting from a defect or lesion of the developing brain. It is a major neurological cause for the crippling of limbs among children with an incidence of 7/1000 in India which leads to a permanent parental dependency of the child for their day-day activities. As the children are growing up, they become a burden not only to the parents but also to their entire family and society. Medical management of these children with oral drugs may be of little importance instead they really require physical stability of limbs too. This can be achieved by various massage techniques like varmam therapy technique-The stimulation of vital points of central nerves system, which are unique in Siddha system of medicine. Hence a holistic therapeutic approach of the spastic child is the need of the hour.
Cerebral palsy is considered a neurological disorder caused by a non -progressive brain injury or malformation that occurs while the child's brain is under development. It is mainly classified in to spastic, flaccid, extra pyramidal and with or without mental retardation. Signs and symptoms may vary patient to patient depending on etiology and pathology. Depending on the patients history, it could be purely motor, main include delayed milestone and no sensory loss.
Siddha medicine dealing with disease and called as Sirakamba vatham. In Cerebral palsy cases, regeneration and development of nerve cell is affected. Hence cp comes under vatha disease in siddha medicine. Varmam is a siddha science that aims to fulfill the cultural spiritual and medical needs of humanity. vatham, pitham, kabam are the three life energy circulating in human body.
Background: Siddha system of medicine is the most primitive medical system. This system has a vast range of external therapies for health management. Most of these therapies aim in maintaining a healthy equilibrium of the vital humors (Vali, Azhal, Iyam).There are 32 types of pura maruthuvam in siddha system. Ottradam is one among them. It is a warm application to a part of the body. Azhal keel vayu is one type of Vatha disease, which is characterized by pain, swelling and restricted movements in the knee joints. The signs and symptoms of osteo arthritis(OA) can be correlated with Azhal keel vayu.
Objective: The aim of this study to evaluate the effectiveness of ottradam therapy on Azhal keel vayu.
Material and Methods: 10 patients withsymptoms of OA were admitted in In Patient Department RVS Siddha Medical college and Hospital. Notchi leaves (Vitex negundo) was used for ottradam procedure. Ottradam was given in morning, for 7-15 days and the patients were monitored clinically.

Siddha system of medicine is the most primitive medical system. This system has a vast range of external therapies for health management. Varmam one of the branches of siddha system helps human society in curing the disease. Varmam means vital life force in the body. In Yugi vaithiya chintamani, Yugi munivar classified the vatham disease as 80 types and “Pakka vatham” is one among them. In Yugi as per the text, the signs and symptoms of pakkavaatham may be correlated with Hemiplegia in modern science. Several converging lines of contemporary evidence suggest that weakness presents a more serious compromise to movement function in post stroke Hemiplegia than spasticity. This review examines the clinical and functional phenomena of weakness in post stroke Hemiplegia, currently available evidence identifying physiologic substrates contributing to weakness, and reports of early investigations involving high-resistance training targeted at improving strength and the transfer of strength to improvements in functional capacity.

It is the second most common rheumatologic problem and is most frequent joint disease with prevalence of 22% to 39% in India.
Many pharmacological therapies like non-opioid analgesics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), topical analgesics, opioid analgesics, and intra-articular steroid and hyaluronate injections are used in OA which gives more side effect Still no curative therapies exist for osteoarthritis Current recommendations for the management of OA, including guidelines published by the American College of Rheumatology, focus on the relief of pain and stiffness and maintenance or improvement in functional status and quality of life as important goals of therapy.
Osteoarthritis is chronic degenerative disorders mostly affect the elderly people in globally and its prevalence is nearly 40% in India. China and India were ranked the top two countries in the absolute number of people aged 65 and over. Siddha Medicine dealing with this disease and called as Azhal keel vayu (AKV).

existing significant therapeutic method even though it is defense and fighting art. This study evaluates the effectiveness of varmam therapy on AKV. The selected 10 patients with the AKV, 6 have the Knee injury
and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) above 81% and 4patients has below 80%. After the therapy 7 patients got significance relieve.

Acupressure :Given pressure point over P6 for 15 to 20 seconds daily.
Patient feedback of post treatment:
After 14 days of naturopathy management he felts better and his indigestion complaint got reduced slowly and ulcer complaint was also slowly subsides.
The patient returned to the center 1 week later and happily reported that his acute pain went away within the first 24 hours. After 3 days of the protocol, all of his symptoms had completely resolved.
Due to the timing of his pain subsiding, it appears that the freshly juiced cabbage was effective in healing his suspected ulcer.
