Understanding Knee Pains through Ayurveda

For years, practitioners of ayurveda have closely studied the many kinds of knee pains. What came out of the study is that joint problems are chiefly of two broad kinds. If you have a growing pain in your knee with no preceding injury to attribute to, then it could be the outcome of low bone density. That happens when your bones, and as a consequence, your joints are poorly nourished. The mild pain and discomfort can deepen to permanent immobility, should you avoid seeking care. The second identified a cause of knee pain is toxic overload. It adds to the weight of the bone and stiffens it up when too many toxins are accumulated in the joints. Inflammation can result in pain later

There are two kinds of joint problems in Ayurveda. The first one, vatadosha is a disorder that evolves out of an imbalanced Vata or the central controller of the mind and body. Poor circulation, digestion, and metabolism are some of the major symptoms of vatadosha. Another cause of painful joints is poor orthopedic health that can be contributed by both low nourishment and arthritis.

Ayurveda has a holistic approach towards healing. In joint pains, the take of the ancient masters is no different. Ayurveda recommends people to take up a healthy lifestyle and dietary habit to counter bone degeneration.

Anointing the affected joint with coconut oil and massaging periodically helps in relieving pain and promoting blood flow to the particular joint.
