Abstract

                       Acharya Sushruta has described 107 marmas. Marma is constituted as combination of Mamsa (muscle), Sira (vessels), Snayu (nerve, tendon, ligament), Asthi(bone) and  Sandhi (joints).This five tissue participate to play vital role in any injury that occur to any of the marma. Kurpara marma is located at the junction of bahu (arm) and prabahu (forearm) i.e exactly at the elbow joint in both the upper limbs. Kurpara marma is one of the Vaikayalkara marma (loss of function). Vaikalyakara marma means the marma which causes deformity on getting injured.. An injury to this marma causes deformity, pain and swelling.  The articulating surfaces that form the elbow joint occurs between the trochlea and capitulum of humerus and trochlear notch of the ulna and head of radius. Elbow joint is responsile of flexion and extension of the upper limb.Tennis elbow is one of the common disease that occur on lateral side of the elbow due to Sprain of radial collateral ligament and tearing of fibres of the extensor carpi radialis brevis.It causes pain and restricted moment of the hand. Preventive measures can be used to reduce the symptoms and lessen the pain.
