One of the most common forms of arthritis affected in people worldwide is Osteoarthritis. Those affected with this disease exhibit various symptoms ranging from minor discomfort, to severe pain, and poor quality of life. Being a degenerative disease, it usually affects the various joints in the body such as the hands, knees, hips, and spine. The after-effects of osteoarthritis as it worsens cause emotional pain, decreasing mobility, and inability to do daily activities and enjoy a normal life. However, all these can be changed by opting for our natural osteoarthritis treatment.
What exactly is Osteoarthritis?
For those of you who don’t know, this is a chronic degenerative joint disease that results in the breakdown of joint cartilage and causes inflammation. We all know that the bone ends in our joints are protected with a layer of cartilage. This little guy keeps the bones from rubbing against each other and helps with movement. When a person gets affected with osteoarthritis, the cartilage cushioning loses its elasticity and gradually wears away.
Once the cartilage gets deteriorated, the bones begin to rub against each other which causes pain, stiffness, inflammation, and eventually limited mobility. Inflammation, putting stress on the joints, cellular disorders, and maintaining an obese lifestyle are considered some of the factors that cause osteoarthritis. However, in Ayurveda, the root cause of all diseases is an imbalance in the doshas or elements.
Switching to Ayurvedic Approaches
The typical osteoarthritis treatment and therapies generally consist of minimizing the pain and controlling the inflammation. The medications provided are at best moderately effective and sometimes, there can be side effects that sometimes can be life-threatening. The ultimate treatment usually done for this disease is joint replacement surgery which is costly and comes with risks. Ayurveda on the other hand focus on preventing the occurrence of disease through natural therapies and medications. Since Ayurveda is considered safe and natural, there are no side effects if the treatment is done at a reputed ayurvedic clinic.
With moderate effectiveness and risks associated with surgeries, the patients are transitioning to alternative therapies such as Ayurveda. Over the years, Ayurveda has shown promising results in treating inflammatory osteoarthritis without the need for joint replacement surgeries. What makes them superior to conventional treatments is that they prevent the progression of the disease by identifying the root cause of the disease and focusing on eliminating the problem thereby improving health.
