Osteoarthritis (Sandhigat vata)
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a one of the common form of joint pains and arthritis. When the protective cartilage on the ends of bones wear down over time then it leads to O.A. It causes pain, swelling, restricted and reduces movement of joints and motion in joints.
OA, It may occur in any big or small joint of the body, but most commonly it affects hands, knees, hips or spine. Knees and Hips are most common in females and males. It involves the entire joint, including the nearby muscles, underlying bones, ligaments, synovium and joint cover.
According to Ayurveda:
Out of three energies of body, when Vata dosha increases in our body in term of quality and quantity, it happens when we consume more vata vitiating food and get exposed to those activities (physical and mental) which tend to aggravate vata dosha in the body. This vayu gets vitiated beyond its limits (“prakopa” term in Ayurveda ) tends to move all over body and can get lodged in dhatus of the body commonly known as tissues. There they start damaging the tissue and initiate a disease process at that particular area (sthan samshraya).
In case of “Sandigat Vata”, the vitiated vayu/ vata gets lodged in weak asthi dhatu (bone tissues) and asthi-Sandhi (joint area between two bones). This process pathologically increase or decrease of vata causes damaging effect on bone tissues. Thus in Sandigata Vata there may be direct or indirect depletion of all tissues of that joint which leads to deterioration in immunity and integrity of the body. When the vitiated vata damages the bones and joints considerably, the signs and symptoms of Sandhigata Vata like
- Shula (Pain)
- Atopa (Crepitus, loose bodies)
- Shotha (Swelling)
It is advisable that as soon as you saw some symptoms consult your health practitioner. If the condition is not taken into consideration of even in this situation, many complications (bheda) may likely to be originate viz immobility, deformity, crippling etc. are manifested.
Causes of Osteoarthritis:
Osteoarthritis is degeneration process of the body which is compensated by the body itself. However, it seems to develop when the body is unable to repair joint tissue in the usual way as a normal process of the body. This leads to more deterioration and less compensation of the damage.
Mostly it affects older people, but it can occur at any age. We have clinically seen the OA changes in mid and late 30th as well.
The two distinct types of osteoarthritis are-
Due to normal wear and tear in the body. It occurs to the joints and tissues of the body due to natural aging of joint. With aging, the water content of cartilage increases, and the solid part, protein makeup of cartilage degenerates. Eventually, it begins to degenerate by flaking or forming tiny crevasses. We could see in advance stage of OA, there is a total loss of the cartilage cushion between the bones of the joint.
- Secondary cause:
In this form of OA, the degenerative changes are caused by another disease or condition in side the body. This Condition leads to secondary osteoarthritis which may includes obesity, repeated trauma or surgery to the joint structure, auto immune disorders, congenital abnormality, gout, diabetes mellitus and hormonal disorders.
