JOINT DISORDERS

OSTEOARTHIRITIS

Osteoarthiritis (OA)/ degenerative joint disease, is a group of abnormalities involving degradation of joints including articular cartilage and bone. Osteoarthritis is a condition in which the cartilage that acts as a cushion between bones in joints begins to wear out, causing inflammation and pain in joints, thereby restricting movement. The common regions affected by osteoarthritis are joints of the hands and fingers, knees, big toe. The symptoms can vary from simple pain on movements to complete loss of joint mobility

Symptoms

joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion. Aching joint pain, limited movement, grating of joint with movement, painful bony growths in the finger joints to joint pain in wrist, knee, foot, elbow, low back pain and sometimes joint inflammation

causes

hereditary, developmental, metabolic, and mechanical, menopausal women.

Primary OA

As as person ages, the water content of the cartilage decreases causing the cartilage to degenerate. Inflamation of the surrounding joint capsule can also occur. This can happen as breakdown products from the cartilage are released into the synovial space, and the cells lining the joint attempt to remove them. New bone outgrowths, called spur formation can form on the margins of the joints. These bone changes, together with the inflammation will make the condition more painful .

Secondary OA

This condition is mainly due to other factors like diabetes, Inflammatory joint diseases, injury to joints, accident, infection of a joint ,obesity.

OSTEOARTHIRITIS AND AYURVEDA

Osteoarthiritis is a degenarative condition and mainly affecting joints, in ayurveda the degenerative process occurs due to the imbalance in vata dosha which mainly maintain movements, as a result of increased vata dosha the aeging process fastens resulting in degeneration of soft tissue, the soft tissue like cartilages are mainly kapha predominant (slishmika) and it maintains the stability of joints .due to increased vata dosha rooksha guna (dryness) the kapha will get vitiated leading to its degradation, inflamatory pathology is mainly pitta predominant and as aresult of these degenerative condition making the joint instable and the inflamation making it tender.

External lepanas are recommanded with special oral medication for reducing inflamation, after the inflamation getting reduced the suppoting muscles should be loosend to get rid off stiffness and the bones should be repositioned using bandages,external heat modalities are used to increase blood circulation and the degenerated soft tissue is rebuild using special oral medication, the last process is mainly strengthening the muscles to hold the joints

AYURVEDIC MANAGEMENT

INTERNAL MEDICINES

These mainly include medicines which can reduce inflamation and stiffness of joints and promote tissue and cartilage regeneration

EXTERNAL MEDICINES

Abhyangam, tractions, bandages, lepanam, katee vasti, differnet types of heat modalities, different panchakarma procedures, diet and yoga asanas, physiotherapy and lifestyle management.

ALLOPATHIC Treatment

Oral steroids are not recommended in the treatment of OA because of their modest benefit and high rate of adverse effects. Injection of glucocorticoids (such as hydrocortisone) leads to short term pain relief that may last between a few weeks

RHEUMATOID ARTHIRITIS

Chronic SYSTEMIC DISORDER that affect many tissues and organs, mainly attacks synovial joints.

It is an autoimmune disorder which causes chronic inflamation of the joints. Rheumatoid arthiritis can cause inflamation of the tissue surrounding the joints along with other organs. Patients with autoimmune disorders have antibodies in their blood that destroy own body tissues, producing inflamation, since this disease can affect multiple organs, rheumatoid arthiritis is also called systemic illness. Pathology of the disease often leads to the destruction of articular cartilage of joints. Usually women are affected

Rheumatoid Arthritis and Ayurveda

Rheumatoid arthritis in Ayurveda is described as Aamvata and vatashonita. It is a condition caused by the Aama (improperly digested foods and raw metabolites). Aama, means an item which is not ripened, cooked and digested or metabolized properly. In relation to Aamvata, it becomes the food which is not digested properly or the digested food which is not metabolized properly. This Aama, when travels in the body with Vata (which decides all kind of movements of the body), Wherever Vata finds closed channels, this Vata leaves the Aama there, which cause different kind of diseases in that particular organ system.vatashonitha is a condition where rakhta dhathu and vata dosha get vitiated simultenously due to ama. In rheumatoid arthiritis both conditions can happen depending upon the stage of disease progression.

Ayurvedic treatment, a holistic approach for Rheumatoid Arthritis.  It stops future deterioration of the joints and helps to rejunevate the damaged joints by normalizing the vitiated doshas

It frees up the areas of inflammation by eliminating toxins and impurities that form. This allows for more blood flow to these areas to speed up healing. OUR MEDICINES contains several premium natural anti-inflammatories that target the area to reduce burning pain, soreness and discomfort. It contains natural ingredients that act to protect and maintain bones and joints over a long period of time and at the same time provide you with long-lasting.

Ayurvedic treatment

(i) "Snehanm" ( use of local and oral medicated lubricants) (ii) "Swedanam" (local fomentation) (iii) "Lepanam" (Local application of medications) (iv) "vata Anulomanam" ( mild laxative treatment for prolonged periods) (v) "Raktamoksham" (blood letting) (vi) "Dahanam" (local heat branding ) and (vii) "Shamanam" ( symptomatic oral treatment).

ALLOPATHIC MANAGEMNET

Corticosteroid: continuous use of these medicines will cause weight gain and increased fat deposition around different ares of body, increased bloodpressure, increased risk of cataracts, increased blood sugar and even avascular necrosis of bone, steroid medication accelerates osteoporosis.

GOUT

gout is a medical condition usually characterized by recurrent attacks of acute inflammatory arthritis—a red, tender, hot, swollen joint. It is caused by elevated levels of uric acid in the blood which crystallize and are deposited in joints, tendons, and surrounding tissues

big toe is affected most often,  Other joints such as the heels, knees, wrists and fingers may also be affected

PAINFUL ARC SYNDROME

is a clinical syndrome which occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles become irritated and inflamed as they pass through the subacromial space, This can result in pain, weakness and loss of movement at the shoulder

Causes

The rotator cuff muscle tendons pass through a narrow space between the acromion process of the scapula and the head of the humerus. Anything which causes further narrowing of this space can result in impingement syndrome. This can be caused by bony structures such as subacromial spurs (bony projections from the acromion),. Thickening or calcification of the coracoacromial ligament can also cause impingement. Loss of function of the rotator cuff muscles, due to injury or loss of strength, may cause the humerus to move superiorly, resulting in impingement.

Signs and symptoms

  • pain, weakness and a loss of movement at the affected shoulder. The pain is often worsened by shoulder overhead movement and may occur at night, especially if the patient is lying on the affected shoulder.
  • grinding or popping sensation during movement of the shoulder
  • Range of motion will be reduced.

According to ayurveda the whole body movements are controlled by vata.in this case it’s a joint disorder where the normal function is blocked by different factors either external or internal,they are called aaganthu(external) and nija(internal) Which will be blocking vata dosha and inturn vitating the dosha leading to a condition of decresed movements,the symptoms manifest according to the causative factor,Treatment varies depending on the condition of doshic predominance .there will be external treatments which increases the mobility of the joint and inturn increase the range of movemnet,the internal medicines are mainly to reduce the causative factors and to restore the circulation We are having special bandages and treatment modalities to get maximum results
