“Arthritis” is a group of conditions involving damage to the Joints of the body. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in people older than fifty-five years.
There are different forms of arthritis; each has a different cause. The most common form of arthritis, OSTEOARTHRITIS (Degenerative Joint Disease) is a result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. Emerging evidence suggests that abnormal anatomy might contribute to the early development of osteoarthritis.
Other Arthritis forms are RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS and PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS, autoimmune diseases in which the body attacks itself. SEPTIC ARTHRITIS is caused by joint infection. GOUTY ARTHRITIS is caused by deposition of uric acid crystals in the joint, causing inflammation. There is also an uncommon form of gout caused by the formation of rhomboid crystals of calcium pyrophosphate. This gout is known as PSEUDOGOUT.
Symptoms of Arthritis feature Pain, Redness, Swelling of the Joint, Stiffness of the Joint, Tenderness, gelling or locking of the Joints with Inactivity, Pain patterns may differ in different Arthritis.
Physical examination may confirm the diagnosis, or may indicate systemic disease. Radiographs or X-rays, Bone scan, MRI scan are often used to follow progression or assess severity in a more quantitative manner. Though the treatment of Arthritis is available in Allopathic System of Medicine, it’s only a Temporary relief, whereas Ayurveda is gaining more and more popularity day-by-day world wide because of its root cause elimination therapies and because of being natural.

When Ama increases in quantity, it starts getting deposited in the weaker areas of the body including the Joints leading to ‘Arthritis’.
