Is Osteoarthritis Terribly Putting You Down?

Have you ever heard cracking sounds from your joints whenever you make a movement? Are your muscles weakening day by day causing inflammation and severe pain? Is there loss of sleep and formation of spurs? If yes, kindly realize that you are in the clutches of Osteoarthritis (Sandhivata). Although there is not anything to really worry about, a quick visit to Vaidya Healthcare Hospital for Osteoarthritis cure would turn out to be the best choice. Systematic ayurveda treatment for arthritis in Kerala is not available everywhere but in Vaidya Healthcare Hospital you can get the best osteoarthritis cure, under the flawless attention and care of highly skilled medical professionals.


What is Osteoarthritis?

It is a degenerative joint disease that occurs due to the loss of synovial fluid in the joints which would definitely lead to the destruction of bones, cartilages, ligaments and muscles. In ayurveda terms, this damage happens as a result of vata dosha that absorbs the fluids from almost all parts of the body. Vata could increase in one’s body due to many factors such as excessive sexual intercourse, sitting in inappropriate postures, suppressing natural calls, overeating, stress, anger and lack of rest.


A Few General Causes of Osteoarthritis include

1. Obesity  
2. Bone Deformities
3. Hereditary
4. Joint injuries and bone deformities 
5. Diabetes and rheumatic diseases
6. Excessive joint stress

People with these ailments and physical conditions are more prone to Sandhivata. They are also most likely to witness the given signs and symptoms within their body if there are chances of osteoarthritis.


Signs and Symptoms

1. Loss of flexibility
2. Tenderness, stiffness and swelling on joints
3. Bone spurs
4. Severe pain
5. Insomnia
6. Cracking sensation
7. Spinal stenosis



Not many of us aware of the limitations of modern medicine, if they opt for allopathy for osteoarthritis. Depending upon analgesics, corticosteroids and anti-inflammatory drugs can only handle the symptoms but not joint degeneration. Hence, it is always advised to be up for ayurveda for a better treatment for Sandhivata. The imbalance of vata can cause ama (toxins) to be deposited in the weak joints. Proper arrest of ama through panchakarma treatments is the only way to get a speedy recovery from vata.

How is Panchakarma carried out?

The whole process may range from seven days to one month. The steps are as follows:
  • Abhyanga- Full body massage using herbal oils
  • Janu Basti- A particular medical oil is heated at a certain temperature and put over the affected joint.
  • Lepa- A medicated paste is applied to the affected joint and a bandage is wrapped around it.
  • Sveda- Fomentation by patra/churna pinda sveda.
  • Virechana- Purgation through drugs
  • Basti- Medicated enema therapy with herbal teas, oil and ghee
  • Agnikarma- Heat burn therapy

Apart from panchakarma treatment, a proper diet and use of Maharasnadi kashayam, Dashamoola kashayam,  Ksheera bala taila, Gandha taila,  Narayana taila, Shatavari ksheera paka, Ashwagandha etc are also encouraged.
