Musculoskeletal System Disorder

Musculoskeletal health refers to the performance of the locomotor system, comprising intact muscles, bones, joints and adjacent connective tissues. Musculoskeletal conditions are typically characterized by pain(often persistent) and limitations in mobility and dexterity, reducing people’s ability to work, lower levels of well-being and participation in society. The disorders include a variety of conditions including Degenerative disorders like Osteoporosis, inflammatory arthritis like Rheumatoid arthritis, Sciatica, Traumatic damage etc.

The role of Ayurveda treatment in Musculoskeletal Disorders has been very successful for many years. Ayurveda classifies these disorders into two main types, depending on their etiology. First one is degenerative disorders associated with weak bones, poorly nourished joints and overall weakness in the bones and muscles. It mainly happens because of vitiated Vata and needs a therapy targeting all the associated doshas. The second type of disorders are associated with the toxic overload in the body, specifically accumulating the joints. The AMA (sticky,slimy,aggravating and toxic substances accumulated in the body from incompletely digested food material) accumulates in the joint and creates stiffness and heaviness. If not treated early, it leads to swelling and increased tenderness in the joint.
