Osteoarthritis: Understanding, Ayurvedic Solutions, and Natural Relief at Punarjani Ayurveda Wellness Centre

Osteoarthritis (OA), a common joint disease, causes pain, stiffness, and inflammation. This degenerative condition results from the breakdown of cartilage, the protective tissue covering bone ends within joints. Often called "wear-and-tear" arthritis, OA can affect any joint, particularly the knees, hips, hands, and spine.

Understanding Osteoarthritis - Causes and Symptoms

While the exact cause of osteoarthritis remains unknown, several factors contribute to its development:

  • Age: Risk increases with age.
  • Injury: Prior joint injuries can predispose to OA.
  • Obesity: Excess weight puts added stress on joints.
  • Genetics: A family history may increase your likelihood.

Typical osteoarthritis symptoms include:

  • Pain: Worsening with activity and improving with rest.
  • Stiffness: Especially after inactivity or upon waking.
  • Limited range of motion: Movement may become difficult.
  • Swelling: Inflammation around the affected joint.
