Ayurvedic approach to Joint disease
Joint disorders affect about 80% of the older individuals in North America however the symptoms are worse in the colder weather. The causative factors of joint pains may be due to obesity, improper use of joints, overuse of the joints, sports injury, stress or diet. Most commonly affected joints are knees, ankles, elbows, wrists, fingers and toes.
Ayurveda identifies two major types of joint problems. One type is due to poorly nourished, dry joints with decreased synovial fluid to facilitate the movement of the bones and ligaments. As we age the Vata dosha becomes prominent and common symptoms are popping and cracking, muscle tics and spasms.
Another type of joint diseases is due to the accumulation of toxins built up in the joint due to poor digestion. The initial symptoms are joint congestion and swelling. If left untreated, it leads to inflammation, burning sensations and pain. As the condition progresses, the chronic inflammation leads to the degeneration of the joint itself.
