Osteoarthritis- Other

Because of the joints, we are constructed and integrated as a single unit.

The integrity and soundness of our joints are essential to all of our daily actions. Many illnesses or conditions might affect our joints at some point in our lives. Many cause suffering, while others affect our way of life. Osteoarthritis (OA) is one such type of joint disease.

The biochemical deterioration of cartilage in the synovial joints is the cause of this chronic, degenerative illness. Aches, stiffness, and swelling in the joints are some of its symptoms, which usually appear gradually.

As people grow old, osteoarthritis is more likely to occur. Eventhough there are occasional exceptions, osteoarthritis changes often take place gradually over a long period of time.

Due to their articular cartilage’s special resistance to loading stress, some joints, including the ankles, may be spared.

Know more about Osteoarthritis Other

Osteoarthritis can come in two major forms:


In Primary OA, the cause is unknown. Lifestyle factors are said to play an important role in increasing the risk of developing primary OA. This disease results from weakened bones. The fingers, thumbs, spine, hips, knees, and great (large) toes are the most frequently occurring, generalised, and affected body parts.



Occurs in conjunction with a pre-existing joint abnormality, such as a repetitive or sports-related injury or trauma, osteoporosis, inflammatory arthritis (such as rheumatoid, psoriatic, or gout), infectious arthritis, genetic joint disorders, congenital joint disorders, or metabolic joint disorders.

Although primary and secondary OA are the same illness, their underlying causes vary.

Signs and Symptoms of Osteoarthritis Other

  • The joint pain gets worse with use and improves with rest.
  • Usually the pain peaks on waking up, in the afternoon or early evenings.
  • Joint stiffness
  • Overexertion may result in flares due to local joint injuries, although occasionally they might occur without a clear cause.
  • Structural changes can occur
  • Instability
  • Joint swelling
  • Crepitus or cracking sound on moving the joint
  • Limited range of movement


Symptoms felt in different joints:

  • OA in the fingers:

The morphology of a person’s fingers can change as a result of OA in the fingers, which can cause them to enlarge or acquire bony growths.

  • OA in the feet:

With OA in the feet, pain could be felt mostly in the big toe.

  • OA in the hips:

If a person has OA in the hips, the pain may spread to the buttocks or groin.

  • OA in the knees:

A person’s knees may get crepitus when moving if they have OA in the knees. This is brought on by ligaments that have been stretched too far or by air bubbles in the fluid that surrounds the joint.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Osteoarthritis Other

If done correctly, applying Ayurveda to any kind of chronic illness can result in solid, practical treatments. A sound etiological theory is required.

The first step in treating sandhigata vata is to increase the digestive fire and remove the vitiated Dosha from the location where it is aggravating the disease.Utilising digestives and carminatives to maximise the digestive fire and get rid of the effects of poor digestion is the first step in the Ayurvedic therapy of arthritis. To release the vitiated entities, additional suitable oleation therapy and fomentation therapy techniques are initiated. After that, Panchakarma or other detoxification techniques that work at the cellular level expunge the defective entity from the body.The Panchakarma therapy includes Abhyanga, Sirodhara, Pizhichil, as well as various Kizhi and Basti forms. The use of proper herbal medications and herbo-mineral combinations that are specifically formulated speeds up the entire healing process. Additionally, Ayurveda successfully reduces the likelihood of significant health issues.

Ayurvedic treatment for arthritis can significantly lessen its crippling symptoms or  prevent it from becoming worse when the condition is very chronic or severe.

Ayurvedic arthritis treatment helps to reverse the disease process and bring about remission if the condition is of a medium-level chronic character.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the factors that contribute to osteoarthritis ?
On X-ray, osteoarthritis can be seen in about 80% of older persons who are 55 years of age and older. An estimated 60% of them have symptoms. Around the world, 240 million adults are thought to suffer osteoarthritis symptoms. Compared to men, post-menopausal women have a higher incidence of knee osteoarthritis.

Older age is the largest risk factor for primary OA, according to the 2022 review provided by a Reliable Source. According to experts, this elevated risk is caused by age-related muscle loss, joints' inability to withstand deterioration with time, and higher bone turnover.

Other possible risk elements include:

● muscular tremor
● vitamin D deficiency
● Movements that are repetetive
● metabolic disorders
● low bone mass
● obesity
● smoking
How do I know if I have osteoarthritis ?
● Keep track of what makes your pain worse or better so that your doctor can determine whether osteoarthritis or another condition may be the cause.

● List any other arthritic family members. Your doctor might suggest more exams like these:

○ X-rays using magnetic resonance imaging,
○ MRI, can detect bone spurs as well as cartilage degradation.

● Doctors may order blood tests to rule out other conditions that could be causing the discomfort, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
How long will the therapy last ?
Since it is based on the severity of the sickness, the patient's age, genetic make-up, and natural constitution, there is no set period of time for treatment. Ayurvedic osteoarthritis treatments often last two to three weeks.
Is it possible to cure osteoarthritis ?
Osteoarthritis is a persistent illness that cannot be cured. Ayurveda, on the other hand, gives us the ability to effectively treat the illness and stop their progression.
