Osteoarthritis in Ayurveda

Osteoarthritis Ayurvedic Treatment


Osteoarthritis in Ayurveda is known by the name “Sandigata Vata,” and in common terminology, it is known as “Degenerative Joint Disease.”  

It’s a chronic disorder found in joints in which the protective cartilage present at the bone ends starts losing its elasticity & wears away with time resulting in reduced mobility in joints, stiffness, swelling, pain, weakened muscles around the affected area, etc.

It can develop in any joint of the body but most often occurs in hands, knees, hips, spine & joints that bear our weight.

It’s one of the commonly found types of arthritis. Women suffer more from this disease as compared to men.


  • Heredity – This disease can also be passed to the next generation.
  • Obesity – Overweight people have more chances of developing this with time.
  • Poor or Sedentary Lifestyle – Today’s modern practices have decreased the quality of life of people.
  • People with Rheumatoid arthritis ( a chronic disorder that affects joint linings & results in Painful swelling ) are more likely to upgrade to osteoarthritis.
