Osteoarthritis Kochi

About Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a form of arthritis that features the breakdown and eventual loss of the cartilage of one or more joints. It is referred as ‘Sandhigatavata’ in ayurvedic text. It is a joint inflammation that results from cartilage degeneration. OA is caused due to aging joints, injury, and obesity. The major OA symptoms include joint pain and stiffness. Joint pain is usually worse later in the day. There can be swelling, warmth, and creaking of the affected joints. In severe osteoarthritis, complete loss of cartilage causes friction between bones, causing pain at rest or pain with limited motion. Ayurveda offers many herbal treatments for the treatment of OA. These plants have documented anti-inflammatory properties without the side effects of commonly prescribed medications. Ayurvedic herbs, particularly involving Boswellia (Boswellia serrata), have shown promising results in OA. Ayurvedic medicine is blessed with an arsenal of wonderful herbs to control inflammations at different levels.
