In this condition apaana vayu is effected.This has the role in lower half of the body basically.Expulsion of the wastes is done by apana vayu.Not only this even delivery of a baby all other important functions are cariied away by this variety of vata.Here urdvagathi of vayu takes place leading to pain in the groin region and also uneasiness in the lower abdomen region.So main intention of our treatment is towards correction of apana vayu.
