Marma Sharira is the distinctive concept of Ayurveda. References of Marma (vital points in body) are found in Veda also. Marma are not merely anatomical landmarks but they are also the locations where Tridosha (basic elements of body) along with their subtle forms Prana, Ojasa or Soma, and Tejasa or Agni (vital elements of the body) are present. An injury to these Marma results in various conditions. The subsequent signs and symptoms of these conditions are well-defined in Samhitas. Yet a detailed study is required to establish the facts in context of contemporary science. This literary study was initiated to fulfill the gap. The Samhitas were studied for the Marma-related content. The secondary data are collected from the Samhitas as well as from online research database. Books and online research database have been used to study the modern aspect of the wrist joint. Manibandha Marma (a Marma that is located in the wrist) was selected for the study. Painful wrist is a challenge for health-care providers. Manibandha Marma is a Rujakar Marma and a Sandhi Marma. This study can help the Ayurvediya health professionals to understand the painful wrist with reference to Marma Sharira.
