Joint pain is a major issue nowadays reasons may be obesity to irregular lifestyle and improper eating habits. Improper use of the joints, overexertion, stress, diet, and lifestyle contribute to joint pain problem.

Ayurvedic Perspective

Ayurveda identifies two major types of joint problems.

Sandhi Vata (Osteoarthritis)

It is associated with poorly-nourished joints or low bone density and overall weakness in the joints. This kind of problem starts with discomfort and cracking sound in joints, and if not taken care of, results in gradual immobilization of the joints. If the bone is not getting the nourishment, it starts to degenerate. Vyana Vata imbalance and the weak absorption, circulation and metabolism create a drying effect on Shleshaka Kapha, that governs lubrication of the joints. When this happens, the joints are not lubricated properly and creates the discomfort, cracking sound, and diminished flexibility in joints.

Ama Vata (Rheumatoid Arthritis)

It is associated with a toxic overload in the joints and is the result of too many toxins in the body. As ama (the sticky, toxic waste product due to incomplete digestion) accumulates in the joint, it first creates stiffness and heaviness. If it stays there for a long time, the joint can become swollen and painful. This second type of joint problem is really a problem of ama (digestive toxins) in the joints and it creates a heavy and stiff feeling. Cold, humid weather can aggravate these symptoms.
