Osteoarthritis / Joint Pain


Sandhigata Vata is the commonest form of articular disorder. It is similar to Osteoarthritis (OA), degenerative arthritis, degenerative joint disease, is a clinical syndrome in which low-grade inflammation results in pain in the joints, caused by abnormal wearing of the cartilage that covers and acts as a cushion inside joints and destruction or decrease of synovial fluid that lubricates those joints. Vata Dosha plays main role in the disease. Shula Pradhana Vedana is the cardinal feature of the disease associated with Sandhishotha with Vata Purna Druti Sparsha, lack of movements of the joints or painful movement of the joints.

Package includes: Snehana (oleation), Svedana (fomentation), Mridu Samshodhana (Detoxification/purification), nadi sweda, agnikarma, vidhhakarma, upanaha, lepa, janu basti, Raktamokshan, Basti (enema) and Vatahara Aushadha (Vata pacifying medicines). Regulation of Ahara and Vihara(Yoga and Exercise) may also be applicable in Sandhigata Vata.

Benefits: Ayurveda offers effective and safe treatment for prevention and cure of osteoarthritis. Even though many modalities are available for the treatment of OA none of them are proved effective and safe. Ayurvedic treatment has the potential of regenerating the cartilage in mild to moderate OA. In case of severe OA, it arrests the progress of degeneration.
