Osteoarthritis is a common condition and is likely to become even more prevalent as the population ages. It involves focal areas of damage to the articular cartilage of synovial joints, with subsequent remodeling of the underlying bone and mild synovitis.

Few studies on pharmacological activity of this plant such as toxicity studies, anti-diabetic, antiulcer, diuretic, antimicrobial, hepatoprotective, cardio protective, immunomodulatory, antiinflammatory, rheumatoid arthritis can be found in scientific literature. Thus its activity as anti-inflammatory and rheumatoid arthritis could be further explored for it activity in Osteoarthritis.
