Ayurveda – An Answer To Every Chronic Pain
What is arthritis or chronic joint pain?
Arthritis is a condition that affects the joints and surrounding tissues. It can be your knees, shoulders, spine, wrist or even fingers. It includes pain and stiffness in muscles that may worsen at a growing age. Two common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. These conditions affect the joints, wherein an inflammation can occur resulting in immobility and severe pain.
Chronic knee pain or osteoarthritis is a condition that is not just faced by the elderly but also by today’s generation. It is developing into a serious problem due to our lifestyle, food, and a lack of exercise. It is the most common form of arthritis, affecting about 237 million (3.3% of the total population of our country), amongst these about 10% of males and 18% of females affected are over 60 years old.
In reality, arthritis isn’t one but almost 200 different rheumatoid diseases that affect the joints. The biggest downside of having arthritis is that it can severely impede a person’s ability to perform routine tasks. The few most common forms of arthritis include inflammatory arthritis, degenerative or mechanical arthritis, metabolic arthritis, infectious arthritis, connective tissue disease, septic arthritis, childhood arthritis, gout, and fibromyalgia. Therefore, it is important to chart out a proper plan for treating this condition.

According to Ayurveda, excess air and hyperactive immune system cause inflammation and pain. But when you balance excess air and immune system, inflammation and pain normally mitigate. Hence, it is necessary to balance the doshas in order to get complete relief from this condition. Doshas are predominantly made of 5 elements – Earth, Water, Air, Space & Fire. These doshas are essential vital energies behind every bodily function and structure.
