Arthritis is a type of joint disorder and may present itself in different forms. It involves inflammation of one or multiple joints along with pain. The bone joints of hands, knuckles, wrist, fingers, jaw, foot, neck, spine, upper and lower back, in knee and hip are the affected areas.
Rheumatoid arthritis and Osteoarthritis are the most common types of arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis affects the joints while Osteoarthritis affects the cartilage near the bones.
Rheumatoid arthritis or Amavata is associated with excessive toxins and symptoms include the presence of swelling, the local rise in temperature, fever, heaviness and restricted movements. The best way of Ayurvedic treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis is given initially with dry heat, dry massage and internal medicines to correct digestion and improve mobility.
On the other hand, chronic arthritis without excess swelling, fever but restricted movements and pain indicates Osteoarthritis or Sandhivata. Knees are the most affected area for Osteoarthritis. This form is treated with oil massage and localized oil baths (Pizhichil).
