Protect Your Joints with Timely Treatment

Osteoarthritis Ayurvedic Treatment

Osteoarthritis is considered one of the common long-lasting chronic joint disorders that affect any joints of the body especially the joints that bear the weight of the body such as knees and feet. The most common joints are affected with Osteoarthritis. Where there is an ending to the bones, there they are covered with a protective tissue called Cartilage. Whenever there is a breakdown or loss of the cartilage of one or more weight-bearing joints, then this issue occurs which results due to degenerative changes in cartilage. Cartilage provides a cushion between joints of bones. When this condition gets affected due to age, weight, and injury pain starts to occur in joints. This commonly occurs to an obese person.

With obesity, there is an increase in mechanical stress on joint hence cartilage get inflamed. Crystals deposits in cartilage in gout can also cause Osteoarthritis. In the hip joint, it is related to structural abnormality of joint.

  • Age Factor-With aging when the water content of cartilage increases, degeneration of cartilage occurs due to the biologic process.
  • Degeneration of Cartilage-In day-to-day life, cartilage begins to degenerate by flaking forming tiny crevasses.
  • Injury-Injury to knee joint mechanically irritates and inflame cartilage cause pain and swelling.
  • Cushion loss-leads to friction in both joints hence limiting mobility.
  • Obesity-An obese person will always be more prone to suffer from Osteoarthritis as the cartilage of the knees is unable to handle the weight of the body.

  • Cracking Sound-Cracking of the affected joint is heard with the movement of the specific joint.
