Question: doctor, am 44 years old ,female.I have been suffering from severe knee pain in right knee for past one week.X ray was taken and diagnosed as arthritis. There is reduced joint space & soft tissue inflamation.Finding very difficult to walk.please suggest treatment

Answered by Dr.Ramani : Osteoarthritis in knee happens commonly due to overweight, heredity influence, injuries and it varies in each person with the age of onset. The degeneration of the cartilage leads to the diminished joint space. Kapha dosha is responsible for the stability and lubrication of the joints. So with the degenerative changes, there is a decrease of Kapha and increase of Vata that is responsible for the pain. It repsonds very well with the Ayurvedic medicines. Panchakarma treatments like Abyanga, Pizhichal, Rice poultice helps to strengthen the knee joint and reduce the pain. Medicines like MahaRasnadi Kadha, Yograj Guggulu can be taken for a month. Divya Pidantak Tailam can be applied externally. Eat healthy food. Give good rest to the knees. As the pain decreases, start to exercise slowly to increase the circulation in the knee joint. Please let me know if you have swelling as you have to avoid applying oil if there is swelling.
