A head injury can be categorized as a broad scope of trauma that occurs to the scalp, skull or brain that ranges from a minor bump to simple bruise or even to serious traumatic brain injury.
Traumatic brain injury is a brain dysfunction that can be due to severe and sudden trauma. Also called acquired brain injury, it causes significant disability and mortality. It occurs when a sudden trauma damages the brain and disrupts the normal function.eg: the head suddenly hits an object or an object hits the head or enters the brain piercing the brain tissue.
It is very hard to assess how severe the head injury is just by mere looking as some minor injuries bleed a lot while some major don’t bleed at all. In case of a potentially serious head injury, the consequences and treatment vary from how severe the head injury is and what the etiology is.
SHIRO ABHIGHATA (Head Injury) In Ayurveda
Ayurveda gives shiro marma a unique position as all the siras and nadis emerge from there and so it can be correlated to the central nervous system(CNS) and it is very clear that any severe injury to CNS is fatal.
Injury to shiro marma which is one among the trimarmas due to external or internal factors is considered as shiro marma abhighata. Shiras include the skull or head. It can be considered as the traumatic brain injury which leads to neurological disabilities. Shiro marma abhighata can be the cause for the manifestation for the vata vyadhi like Pakshakhada, Sarvanga vata & ekangavata.
