For a disease that affects almost eighty percent of people over 50 years of age, not much is known about curing joint pains. Allopathic medicine remains almost clueless about a complete cure for joint pains which occur due to various reasons like heredity and lifestyle. It treats the pain with pain killers, inflammation reducers and other such drugs which do not heal the joint completely and lead to other problems too.
Ayurveda and Joint Pain
Ayurveda has its own unique perspective on joint problems. According to it, these occur due to:
- Poorly-nourished joints
- Low bone density and overall weakness in joints
The main symptom of poorly nourished joints is discomfort followed by a crackling sound. In this, the bone making up the joint can degenerate due to lack of proper nutrition. Low bone density joints usually occur due to a toxic overload in the joints called ‘ama’ in Ayurveda. Ama is the sticky, toxic waste product of incomplete digestion and this accumulates in joints making them stiff and heavy. Ama accumulation for long can make a joint swollen and painful. Damp, cold weather can aggravate this type of joint problem. If ‘vata’ the Ayurvedic dosha associated with movements and proper functioning of metabolism and assimilation is aggravated, it can cause joint pain too.
The imbalance in Vyana Vata, a special form of vata associated with bone damage along with weakened circulation, metabolism and absorption creates an imbalance in ‘kapha’ the other major dosha in the body, according to Ayurveda. ‘Shleshaka’ Kapha, the sub-dosha of Kapha that controls lubrication of joints dries up. This makes the un-lubricated joints very vulnerable and one starts getting pain.
The first line of treatment for joint pains is pacifying the Vata dosha through food and lifestyle modifications like:
- Include all six tastes -sweet, sour, salty, bitter, astringent, and pungent- in the diet. However, sweet, sour and salty tastes are very good to pacify Vata dosha.
- Eat less of bitter, astringent and pungent foods.
- Eat more grains like quinoa, rye and amaranth, cooked in ghee.
- Freshly-cooked organic vegetables and warm liquid soups are best.
- Eat a diet rich in calcium- milk, spinach, kale, asparagus, and root vegetables.
- A Vata pacifying daily routine like eating before 8 pm in the night and keeping dinner light and sleeping early are also advised.
If possible get a daily Ayurvedic oil massage ‘abhyanga’ with special medicated oils to prevent joint problems. Regular habits help settle Vata. So, it’s suggested that one goes to bed at the same time each day, gets up at the same time and follows a regular routine for pacifying Vata. Getting stress under control though meditation and pranayama also does wonders. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

I am 19 yr old and I have backache from last 1 month. What should I do and to whom I should consult?
Pain is inevitable after the plaster is removed from the location of the broken wrists. Since the wrist hasn’t moved for well over a couple of weeks, the hand might feel vulnerable to perform routine tasks. Along with the prescribed medication, physiotherapy is mighty effective in healing the wrist and getting the old balance back. The process of physiotherapy should be typically started when the pain diminishes and the Doctor gives his go-ahead for the same.
What are the benefits?
This is primarily done to get back the muscle strength. Physiotherapy also helps in gaining mobility and function of the wrist that has been affected because of the injury. While therapy does not heal the fracture, they ensure bones of the wrist get denser and stronger. This ensures that future injuries are effectively prevented.
Flexion: This is the process of bending the wrist in the forward direction and holding the posture for 5 seconds. 3 sets of 10 flexions should be done in one session.
Extension: This is the opposite of flexion. In this exercise, the wrist should bend backwards and 3 sets of 10 extensions should be performed in each session.
Side Movement: The wrist should be moved sideways much like the motion performed during a handshake. Each movement should last for 5 seconds and 3 sets of 10 such movements should be performed in each session.
Wrist Stretch: This is the process of bending the wrist with the help of the other hand. The next process is to stretch the fingers backwards with the help of the other hand. This posture should be held for 15 seconds and 3 sets should be performed.
Wrist Extension: This is an exercise where the body weight is placed on the wrist by keeping the palms down and legs straight. This exercise should be repeated thrice each lasting for 15 seconds.
Grip Strengthening: A soft rubber ball should be kept in the palm and squeezed for 5 seconds. This activity should be done 15 times twice.
Wrist Supination: This exercise involves the flipping of the forearm up and down for 5 seconds each. It can be done in sets of 10 each.
Once a person gets comfortable with the stretching exercises, the same exercises can be done with some weight in hand to further strengthen the muscles. Isometric exercises can also be practised. This is beneficial since they do not involve muscle contraction. A mix of all these exercises will help to mobilise the wrist. Apart from these exercises, certain other activities such as swimming, driving and cycling can be practised to ensure speedy recovery of the artist. At any point of time, a physiotherapist should be consulted before taking up any new exercise or activity that involves the wrist.
