Abstract: Since, the Hijamat therapy is not still scientifically validated, therefore, after reviewing unani literature, a case study on Hijamat-Bila-Shurt in the management of Waja-ul-Mafasil was carried out. In the present study, thirty patients of 20-65 yrs of age were clinically diagnosed and were enrolled for 35 days from the OPD/IPD of NIUM Hospital. Patients were allocated in two groups A & B. Group A, containing 20 patients, was treated with Hijamat-Bila-Shurt and Habbe Suranjan two tablets twice a day, while group B, containing 10 patients, was treated with Habbe Suranjan two tablets twice a day. The duration of application of cups was 30 minutes in each sitting. There was significant improvement in the subjective parameters (p<0.05) except muscular weakness in group A. In group B, significant improvement was in joints pain, tenderness and restriction of movement (p<0.05) while in other parameters the result was not significant. Based on the results of the study, it has been concluded that Hijamat-Bila-Shurt should be advised along with the drug treatment for the management of Waja-ul-Mafasil.
