Degenerative Arthritis (Osteoarthritis - OA) 

Osteoarthritis is the most common Degenerative Arthritis. It happens when the cartilage or cushioning surface between the bones starts wearing away. As a result bones rub against each other which causes pain, swelling and stiffness. The gradual wearing of cartilage cushioning results in loss of its elasticity. Without the elasticity 

bones begin to rub against each other, causing stiffness, inflammation, and loss of movement.

Its natural phenomenon and with age the degeneration happens but this degeneration can be slowed down or retarded with Ayurveda recommendations like in overweight persons the knees, hip and ankles get affected faster due to obesity and they degenerate faster

Inflammatory Arthritis (Rheumatoid Arthritis - RA) 

Inflammatory arthritis is characterized by inflammation of the joints. This condition develops due to weakening of immune system. This means that body’s defense system starts attacking our own tissues instead of germs, viruses and other foreign substances. This causes pain, stiffness and damage to joints. They’re also known as autoimmune diseases. Rheumatoid arthritis is an example of inflammatory arthritis.

Gout Arthritis

Some people have high levels of uric acid because they naturally produce more than what is needed by the body. This extra Uric acid (Beyond limit) starts getting accumulated in the body and forms needle-like crystals in the joint. This results in sudden spikes of extreme joint pain, or a gout attack. Gout can come and go in episodes. If uric acid levels aren’t reduced, it can become chronic disease causing pain and disability.

Ayurveda Treatment to Arthritis
In Ayurveda Arthritis is  called “Amavat” as its caused due to Deposition of Toxins (Amas) in the body esp joints. These toxins develop in our body due to poor digestion of patient. The toxins then circulate in the body through the blood and reach various parts of the body. The toxins get accumulated in the joints and start creating problems.
