Reasons behind Osteoarthritis
Sandhivata is another name for Osteoarthritis that is used in Ayurveda. Here Sandhi stands for joint and vata stands for vata dosha. According to Ayurveda, the main reason behind the occurrence of this disease is the increased amount of Vata dosha. Vata is the symbol of wind or air, which controls all the movements of the body and the mind. When the vata gets increased in the joints then it causes sandhivata. Vata has the property to absorb the fluid from any part of the body because of its dry nature. All the destruction of the cartilages and synovial fluid which is present inside the joint capsule is done by the presence of vata.
