Abstract

JANU SANDHIGATA VATA vis –a – vis OSTEOARTHRITIS OF KNEE JOINT - A CONCEPTUAL REVIEW

Dr. Rameshwari*, Dr. Suvendu Rout and Dr. Soumya E. A.

Abstract

In Ayurveda classics, Sandhivata is mentioned as one among the 80 Nanatmaja Vata Vyadhi. Ayurveda literature describes the disease under various names such as sandhivata, sandhigata vata, khudavata etc. Acharya Charaka was the first one to mention the disease separately as sandhigata anila. When the vitiated Vata dosha lodges in the janu sandhi, it causes janu sandhigata vata. The samprapti, rupa, and chikitsa of Sandhigata vata is mentioned under Vata vyadhi adhyaya. Osteoarthritis of the knee joint is almost identical to Janu sandhigata vata with respect to etiology, pathology and clinical features. Osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative disorder which mainly affects large & weight bearing joints. Joint pain is very prevalent among the affected people. The line of treatment like physiotherapy/ pharmacological therapy is approached but these are limited over time due to their cost or side effects. For the purpose of prevention and cure of the disease, treatments and medicines are mentioned in Ayurveda classics which serve a healthy life.

Keywords: Janu sandhigata vata, Osteoarthritis, Sandhivata.
