Hypothenar Eminence Fasiculations and Ayurvedic Treatment
The hypothenar muscles are three groups of powers of the palm which is twitching in muscles. The integrity of the human hand is one of the factors apart from other animals and primates. The movement plays a significant role in the evolution of humans. Neuromuscular disease is a disease that usually affects the nervous system, the neuromuscular junction, and the skeletal muscle. It can be acquired or genetic. It is caused by autoimmune disorders which are genetic disorders, they are progressive in nature and result in the weakness of muscles and fatigue. Muscles are the soft tissues and there are more than 600 muscles in the body. Some muscles voluntarily control the nervous system of the body and some muscles are involuntary and work automatically such as in the digestive system. The muscles play a very important role in every system and in various functions of the body which help in pumping blood, digesting food, and getting rid of waste. In this article, we are going to discuss hypothenar muscle causes and its symptoms with its ayurvedic aspect in detail.
The word thenar means fleshy mounds which are associated with two thenars, located on the palmar surface of the hand. These thenar mounds are known as thenar and hypothenar eminence, the thenar eminence is the fleshy mound at the base of the thumb and hypothenar eminence is located at the base of the fifth digit (little finger). The hypothenar eminence is made up of four muscles but three are the primary muscles- Four muscles are abductor digit, the minimi muscle, the flexor digit minimi brevis muscle, the opponents’ digit minimi muscle, and the palmaris brevis muscle. The thenar eminence is developed from the mesoderm and ectoderm germ layer, the mesenchymal tissue forms the blood vessel which perfuses the hypothenar eminence. Arterial injury to the ulnar artery affects HT eminence due to insufficient flow of the blood which leads to Hypothenar hammer syndrome (this condition tends to affect the individual who works with tools not able to grip and repetitively pounding the tools). Proximal compression of the nerves shows some symptomatic changes in resting and active presentation of the hand, due to a decrease in the sensation and feeling of needles and pins sensation. HT eminence indicates a C8 spinal root lesion.

Ayurveda is a life science that deals with illness with herbs and minerals and carries dietary and daily regime management. In ayurveda, there is tridosha (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) which is responsible for many neurological diseases. Mainly Vata dosha is associated with the neurological system such as numbness, pain, muscle twitching, and tingling sensation. In ayurveda, Hypothenar eminence fasciculation is compared with Vishwachi. Vishwachi is a vataja nanatmaja disorder that is characterized by pain in the upper extremities which is difficult in raising hands and emaciation of muscles of the hand.

Due to nidana, Vata dosha gets prakopa and moves all over the body and when it comes in contact with Ekta srotas it fills them and produces savanna and kanga vyadhi. In vishwachi the Vata dosha moves all over the body in Greece which makes it their adhisthana, Vata fills the srotas and causes the various symptoms of vishwachi.
Doshas- Vata, vyana vata
Dushya- ras, rakta, mamas, meda, nadi sansthan
Srotas- Chestavaha srotas
Vyadhi Swabhava- chirkari
- Uttarbhaktikha snehapana
The Vata Nashik management is the key point that is used in the treatment of vishwachi or hypothenar eminence fasciculations.
