Joint Pain

What is Joint Pain?

Joint Pain in simpler terms means joint inflammation. The term addresses 200 conditions which affect joints and the other connecting tissue surrounding it. Arthritis causes permanent joint changes. It can be often seen as knobby finger joints, wobbly hands but its damage is seen exactly through an X Ray machine. Arthritis is prominent in old age where the fluids inside our body dries up because of increased toxins. This leads to inflammation, swelling and stiffness. If not paid attention, this can lead to deformity of joints. The problem is the result of imbalanced vata dosha.
Common symptoms of joint include pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion. The symptoms are not regular. But they may stay over a long time and it can even worsen. In severe cases, a person is unable to perform daily activities or climb stairs.

Types Of Joint Pain


This involves wear and tear damage of the joint’s cartilage which is the hard, slick coating on the end of the bones which connect to become a joint. The end of the bones are cushioned with cartilage and it allows frictionless joint motion. When this layer is severely damaged, a bone grinds directly on another bone which results in great pain and restrictions in movement. This condition occurs over a passage of many years. Other reasons could be because of any joint injury or any infection.
Osteoarthritis results in affecting the entire joint. It causes inflammation in the joint lining. It affects the bone structure and deterioration of the connective tissues which is responsible for attaching the muscle to the bone and holding the joint together.


This is an autoimmune condition, where the body’s own immune system attacks the lining of the joint membrane which encompasses all the parts of a joint. It is known as synovial membrane. This becomes swollen and inflamed. Here, the whole cartilage and the bone within the joint gets destroyed.

Our treatment

Works on the root cause

Ayurvedic treatments have been used to treat a number of conditions including arthritis. The Ayurvedic practice follows a regime of different herbs and plants to reduce the effects. And along with this there are certain ayurvedic practices which focus on improving circulation and flexibility. All the medicine will be given after knowing your prakruti, which will help in undermining the root cause of the person.

Solution based on your Prakriti

All the medicine will be given after knowing your prakruti, which will help in undermining the root cause of the person. Ama and Vata are the main causative factors, and a long term remedy for arthritis should include some in-depth treatment methods to digest Ama and reduce Vata. The digestion has to gradually improve from time to time, thus reducing the production of Ama, so that no further Ama is created in the long run

Usage of Natural Herbs and remedies

Ayurvedic therapy includes Snehana where there is ghee, herbal oil, animal fat or bone marrow to expel the imbalanced dosha out of the body. It also includes Swedana – application of hot, moist substances to heal pain. And the most important is the usage of Herbs – Ashwagandha, Bhallataka, Chitraka, Eranda, Gokshura, Guggulu, Rasna, etc. Apart from this, Ayurveda also recommends a combination of healthy diet (ahar) and lifestyle changes (vihar) in order to manage effectively.
