Muscle relaxants in Ayurveda

Muscle relaxants are that category of drugs, which are used in various conditions of muscle spasm. The pain killers are also supposed to be given with it. There are various reasons for muscle spasm. Drugs that relieve muscle spasm in disorders such as backache. Ant anxiety drugs (minor tranquilizers) that also have a muscle-relaxant action are used most commonly. The massage process of various types as well as parental medicines are described in ayurveda as per the conditions of the patients. As per the modern sciences the muscle relaxant drugs are that category of drugs, which act on the striated muscles that control the skeletal actions. The other category of muscle relaxants is used as anesthetics. The use of muscle relaxants is dependent upon the conditions of the patients. The muscle relaxants are mainly used in the neuromuscular disorders like multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal cord injury and other traumatic conditions.
