Knee Issues with the Help of Ayurveda

Caring for Your Knee Issues with the Help of Ayurveda

Aching knee joints complain, is very common among all age groups. The reason for his being a ton of factors. A sudden injury can cause knee pain, or there could be an underlying condition, such as arthritis, dislocated kneecap and tendonitis, a few to name. The extent of pain depends on the disorder and may vary from person to person. Common symptoms can be unbearable pain in joints, tenderness, stiffness and sometimes an effusion too.


Ayurvedic Outlook

Ancient Ayurveda–uses medicinal herbs to cure knee and joint pain. Ayurveda spots two major joint problems— 


Type 1 is associated with ‘Poorly nourished joints’ or low bone density and overall weakness in the joints. When Vyana Vata gets aggravated, this type can occur. It starts with some discomfort, a cracking sound. If not taken immediate care, it can result in eventual immobilisation of the joints. The imbalance in Vyana Vata and the lack of circulation, metabolism and absorption create a drying effect on Shleshaka Kapha (that governs the lubrication of the bones). 


Type 2 is related to a ‘Toxic overload in the joints’ and is the result of numerous toxins in the body. ‘Ama’ gets accumulated in the joints and makes the joint stiff and painful to move. If the Ama harbours for a long time, it can result in swollen and painful joints. Ayurveda can give you the best ayurvedic treatment for knee joint pain.


The most effective and safe ayurvedic medicine for knee pain is Pirant Oil and Tablets, a herbal formula, which nourishes the bones and joints and supports the tissue of the bones. ‘Pirant’ effectively relieves acute and chronic inflammation of joints and provides relief from morning stiffness. They relax the muscles and reduce inflammation in the joints. Pirant neutralises the toxic effects of Ama, which, according to Ayurveda, is the underlying cause of inflammation. A regular ayurvedic massage with Pirant oil is recommended to prevent joint problems, as it helps settle the ‘Vata dosha’.

Therefore, as you begin to take care of your joint problem by reducing Ama, make sure not let in Ama again.
