Ayurvedic Treatment for Knee Pain (Upanaha, Vasthi, Swedana, Virechana, Abhyanga)

The knee is one of the largest joints in the body, shaped by the lower end of the femur, upper end of the tibia and the patella (knee cap). A few ligaments and muscles connected to the bones of the knee joint keeps up ordinary movement. Special cartilaginous tissues, known as menisci, are placed between the two articular ends of the joint. These act as a cushion between the articular surfaces and absorb the shock during movement. An injury or disease of the knee joint, or any structure surrounding the knee can result in pain.

According to ayurveda knee pain or swelling of the knee joint is Sandhivata in which the vitiated vata affects the joints which intently looks like the ailment of Osteoarthritis. Injury, amadosha, fasting, riding or standing irritates vatadosha which leads to sandhivata.
