A diagnosed case of Low back ache came with complaints of pain over low back region, stiffness and limitation in the movements of lumbo-sacral joint since 2 years. There was no history of trauma or fall and other systemic illness. A positive family history was noted. In Ayurveda, it can be correlated with Asthigata vata and deranged Vata dosha is the main cause for pain. The primordial treatment for Vata dushti is Basti, especially Anuvasana vasti. Ketakyadi taila is very effective in Asthigata vata. So Anuvasana Basti with Ketakyadi tailam is administered continuous 9 days. The clinical symptoms like low back pain and stiffness got relieved markedly on 5th day itself. After the entire treatment the condition of the patient improved remarkably.
