Have you ever felt an excruciating pain whenever you lifted your left arm right above your head? It is quite common among people over 45 years of age. Similarly, as you grow older, the fluid in the joints dries up causing the bones to clash with each other. That can be extremely painful. This condition has a painful sounding name as well, osteoarthritis. Usually, you find older people feeling this stiffness in their knees first. It is also known as Sandhivata in Ayurvedic circles. Osteophytosis is also a condition you usually associate with old age. Joint Disease – Causes
Ayurveda is an individualistic treatment in the sense that it has different procedures for inflammatory and degenerative joint diseases.
Ayurveda associates inflammation with toxicity. There are three types of toxicity, mild, moderate, and severe. The treatment methods are different in each case.
Sandhivata and Osteophytosis are degenerative joint diseases. Ayurveda has special treatment procedures such as Tailadhara (pouring medicated oils), Nhavarakkizhi (massage procedure using rice bolus mixed in medicated milk), etc.
We shall discuss a few home remedies for osteoarthritis
Ayurveda has some excellent procedures to strengthen the joints. Having a glass of milk every day can increase the calcium content in the bones thereby protecting it against degeneration.
