Ayurvedic Treatment For Knee Pain!

Ayurvedic Treatment For Knee Pain!

Ayurveda is a very old system of medicine, which originated in India. Using herbs found in nature to cure various illnesses, knee pain can also be permanently cured with this method indigenous to India. It reduces knee pain caused by various illnesses including arthritis, inflammation of the cartilage and wearing of the patella among others.

Here are some common Ayurvedic remedies, which help reduce knee pain:

  1. Alfalfa: Alfalfa is medically known as Medicago Sativa. Alfalfa is excellent for making sure that your joint pain reduces, when taken in liquid form four times a day.
  2. Ashwagandha: Ashwagandha is medically known as Withania Somnifera. In the West, Ashwagandha is popularly known as Winter Cherry. Also, it has a lot of therapeutic properties, which include reducing joint pains.
  3. Banyan: The Banyan tree's medical name is Ficus Benghalensis. It has a sap very similar to the form of rubber known as latex is derived from the Banyan tree. The Banyan tree's sap is externally applied over the joints and the pain usually disappears after a few regular applications. 
  4. Bishop's weed: The medical name for Bishop's weed is Trachyspermum Ammi. The oil extracted from this herb is usually applied to the knees to reduce the intensity of such knee pains.
  5. Celery: The medical name for celery is Apium Graveolens. Celery is not only an effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and associated pains in the knees, but it is also helpful in treating gout. It is usually agreed upon that this particular treatment is usually long lasting because of its alkaline nature.
  6. Dandelion: Dandelion's biological name is Taraxacum Officinale. It is rich in magnesium and is crucial for the correct mineralization of the bones. This mineralization allows the bones to become stronger and also prevents knee pain.
  7. Garlic: The medical name for garlic is allium sativum. Five to six cloves eaten everyday has proved to reduce knee pains.
  8. Ginger: Ginger is biologically called Zingiber Officinale. These can be easily included in your diet and go a long way in curbing knee pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Exercises for joint pain: 1> Aqua-Aerobics - For some, running on the treadmill or elliptical can be very painful and do more damage to the bones than good. For those individuals, aqua-aerobics is a great option. Being in the water takes the weight and pressure off of your joints, while still providing a rigorous exercise. 2> Yoga - Yoga does wonders for strengthening muscles and increasing flexibility. 3> Stretching - There are so many different stretches you can perform to reduce joint pain. Depending on what muscles are causing you pain, these stretches can vary. Ask your PHYSIOTHERAPIST what is best for you. 4> Cycling - Try using the stationary bicycles. * Remember, everyone’s pain is unique, and these exercises may not work for everyone. Talk to your Physiotherapist about developing an exercise plan that suits your needs. NOTE: Joint pain occurs because of deficiency or excess of certain minerals. Kindly go for blood tests for precise diagnosis.

Thanks for contacting with your health concern 1. As the pain of LBA [low backache] is chronic, ask for: i. Hb%, X-ray LS spine - AP & Lateral (for osteoarthritis, disc prolapse, TB spine, osteoporosis) ii. In females, refer to gynecologist if x-ray is normal to rule out gynaec causes PS. If no improvement refer to Orthopedic surgeon.

May be. If you regularly walk on toes your back has to compensate. Avoid wearing high heels. Use dolokind gel locally.

Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

There's a pain in the joint of my toe. I have done an Xray and there's no bone issues. Could it be related to gout?

Hi thanks for the query. From the complaints you had described the reason for the pain in the toe could be due to injury or some times due to gout. If there is no history of injury, it is better to get uric acid test and consult your local orthopedician.
