Joint Care  

       According to Ayurveda mostly Joint & Muscle pains are caused by the aggravation of vata  dosha. It is a condition which is caused by accumulation of Ama and aggravation of Vata. (Ama is a toxic by-product of improper digestion. )This Ama circulates in the whole body and deposits or gets collected at the sites which are weaker. When it deposits in the joints and at the same time there is aggravation of Vata , it results in joint-disease .

Symptoms

  • The main symptom of this disease is severe pain in the affected joints. The tissues in and around the joints become inflamed and movement of the joint becomes extremely painful. Untreated arthritis may lead to permanent deformity of the affected joints.
  • Fever  in case of infections
  • Immense pain & stiffness in affected muscles, specially stiffness and pain (i.e., fingers, wrists, elbows, knees, ankles) in the morning.
  •  Excruciating pain and stiffness in the joints

Root Causes 

The following medical conditions are some of the possible causes of Joint pain as a symptom. There are likely to be other possible causes.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, or joint inflammation

• Gout and Pseudogout :Conditions that affect metabolism. These conditions result from materials being deposited into the joints,

ii]Flu
iii]Bacterial infection

• Autoimmune disorders : in which a person's body produces antibodies against its own tissues. These disorders include Rheumatoid Arthritis and Systemic Lupus Erythematus.

Pathophysiology

     Causes include both internal and external factors. Ama associated with Vata quickly moves to different parts of the body and accumulates where circulation is sluggish or slow such as the hands, knees and other bone joint. It is also more common in old age when Vata naturally increases in the body. Meat diet, foods such as ice cream, to much concentrated dairy products  such as aged cheese or goods of sour cream or cheese with your meals, cold foods especially during cold weather which vitiates Vata, heavy cakes, pastries and candies, packaged and processed foods with little fiber are the main dietary causes. Gas producing vegetables and legumes also create more internal air which moves the toxins to different parts also the condition. This ama blocks tissue pores and passages. This causes heaviness and weakness of the heart which becomes the seat of the disease.
