Osteo Arthritis

Osteo Arthritis, also known as degenerative arthritis or wear-and-tear arthritis, can occur in any age. But is mostly observed in older people. Unlike other arthritis, it has nothing to do with the immune system or uric acid levels.

Any joint is a place where two or more bones come together. The ends of these bones are encapsulated by a protective tissue called cartilage. With time and with a diet of unbalanced nutrition, the cartilage gradually weakens and breaks down, causing the bones to rub against each other. This condition will give rise to severe pain while walking or any kind of muscle movement, with stiffness also associated in some cases. This condition is known as Osteo Arthritis.

Causes

Cartilage is rubbery and flexible in nature. It protects the bones joints and enables them to move easily against each other. When cartilage is damaged with age , the bone becomes dry and rough causing their surface to become pitted. This can cause pain and irritation at the joint. Cartilage doesn’t contain any blood vessels so they can’t repair themselves.

When cartilage wears away completely, the cushioning it provides disappears, leading the bones to come in contact with each other. This causes intense pain and other symptoms associated with OA. It also happens when the body is not able to repair joint tissue in the usual way.

Other causes of joint damage include past injury, such as:
1. Torn cartilage
2. Dislocated joints
3. Ligament injuries
4. Injury/ overuse

Symptoms

  1. Pain in Joints
    2. Tenderness (discomfort when pressing on the area with your fingers)
    3. Stiffness
    4. Inflammation
    5. Loss of flexibility
    6. Grating sensation
    7. Bone spurs
    8. Loss of muscle bulk
    9. The affected joints are larger than usual

Treatment

Ayurvedic Osteoarthritis treatment not only prevents further deterioration in the joints but also rejuvenates damaged cartilages. Vata-alleviating medicines for Osteoarthritis are also suggested for lubrication and strengthening of joints. Our treatment procedure starts with identifying the root cause (Nidaan) first, based on that the line of treatment is customized for individual patients. Customized Osteoarthritis treatment is combination of  Panchakarma, Medicine, Diet, Exercise and Lifestyle advice.

Medicines are prescribed by the doctor after a thorough examination of the patient. Treatments must be done under the supervision or advice of a certified Ayurvedic Doctor and not based on self-judgment.

What Our Patients Say About Us?

Nithya AS

Nithya AS,

I found to have diabetes just 3 months back. My sugar was around 200+ .I didn’t want to go to any alloathic doctor as they will ask to take medicine life long. I saw Dr Aravind in youtube and was impressed by his speech. I went to him in Jan and he gave me Ayurvedic medicines and diet chart for diabetes reversal. It’s been 3 months now and now all medicines are stopped and as he promised my sugar levels are 105 fasting and 93 post prandial. I was shocked to see the results. All diabetes patients can go to him blindly. Just listen to his instructions. Your diabetes will be reversed.
