Joint Pain - An overview
Ayurveda works on the principles of doshas, with the three principal doshas or energies being Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Imbalance in these doshas leads to diseases and health problems. In the case of joint pain, it is mainly the Vata dosha that is responsible for joint pain. The joints have empty spaces and they correspond with Vata. There are various issues related to joint pain in Ayurveda.
Circulation is governed by Vyana Vata. When there is an imbalance, it leads to circulation problems and the tissues in the bone do not get sufficient nourishment. As a result, degeneration in the joints starts to develop. This in turn has an impact on a Kapha dosha, known as Shleshaka Kapha. It is this kapha that keeps the joints lubricated allowing smooth bone movement.
A long term buildup of Ama in the body makes it Amavisha that is more dangerous. When that Amavisha affects the joints it causes degenerative issues. Joint degeneration leads to drying of the shleshaka kapha and joint lubrication is affected. This leads to pain, cracking sound in the joint, and lack of flexibility. The Shleshaka kapha is linked to the dhatus or tissues. Agni or fire plays a role in the metabolism of a person. Agni is related to digestion in the body. Digestive problems are related to agni and affect the working of the digestive system.
This causes ama to be formed. Ama is a toxin and is carried to the colon by Vata, which is the most active kapha. According to Ayurveda, the tissues in the joints have their own Agni. When this is weakened, then Vata carries the toxin ama to the joints. This leads to all the symptoms of joint pain, like inflammation, pain, cartilage degeneration, etc.
The two causes of joint pain are thus ama and the effect of shleshaka kapha. When it comes to ama, the problem is related to agni and hence Agni needs to be kindled. This can be done by cleansing the colon. Such an ayurvedic cleansing helps to keep the agni in good working condition and keeps the body healthy.
Ama can be reduced through diet. Warm and light foods can help in digestion. Use of spices is recommended while cooking. Fresh vegetables, grains, calcium in the diet, and ghee help in reducing ama. Avoiding acidic food and coffee is strongly recommended. To treat Vata and restore its balance, it is important to add all the different tastes like salty, sour, spicy, bitter, pungent, and astringent in the diet.
Apart from diet, a healthy lifestyle is recommended. Getting up early and exercising. Avoiding stimulating activities like use of mobile phone, watching TV before sleep should be avoided. Abhyanga or massage with an ayurvedic oil is recommended. Massage is an excellent ayurvedic treatment for knee pain and joint pain in other parts of the body. Panchakarma treatments help to restore movement and flexibility to the joint. They are also used to detoxify and eliminate the Ama from the body. Care should be taken to ensure that the cycle of Ama formation is broken with wise lifestyle choices as described above. Internal medications may be prescribed if there is a severe Dosha imbalance that also needs correction. Herbs to support the digestive fire and ease digestive issues are also useful.
Patients can use ayurvedic oil for joint pain and massage daily. Massage helps to improve circulation. Once circulation is improved the balance to the Vata is restored. This, along with a proper diet can restore balance to Agni. This helps to solve the problem of joint pain. Ayurveda thus offers a holistic treatment for joint pain and is the ideal solution for joint care. Overall good health is the key to easing all medical issues. This is achievable only through a healthy lifestyle, balanced diet, and efficient metabolism.
