Arthritis is a condition that affects millions of people all over the world. Now  It is a condition in which there is swelling, pain and decreased range of motion in the joints. This may lead to stiffness, weakness and lack of mobility in the joints which typically worsen with age. Cause of arthritis can be varied, from infections and trauma to degeneration and autoimmune. Many of those are curable through lifestyle changes and ayurvedic treatment while some others are only manageable by relieving the symptoms and improving the overall health.

In ayurveda arthritis is seen as a result of imbalance caused to the doshas and dhatus due to various factors.

This can be achieved through a combination of specific diets, exercise, ayurvedic supplements, therapies and herbal medicines etc.
