Ayurveda has been used in the treatment of Arthritis in India for thousands of years. Here are some of the specific Ayurvedic treatments which will benefit arthritis sufferers:


Ellakizhi is used in the treatment of osteo-arthritis as it promotes better circulation and relieves stress. It is a fomentation massage with finely chopped herbal leaves and herbal powders, warmed in medicated oil and bundled in a poultice. It also brings relief to sufferers of rheumatism and other diseases and is ministered to people with spondylosis and sports injuries suffering from soft tissue inflammations and joint pains.


Padhabhyanga is the massage of the legs below the knees, improving circulation to the extremities. Aside from being beneficial to people with diabetics, it increases joint mobility, decreases muscle tightness and helps with destressing.


Fomentation is performed with a linen bag filled with churna (medicated powder). Choornaswedam produces a therapeutic sweat, which relieves neurological disorders, rheumatism and arthritis.


Warm ayurvedic oils are held on the affected areas, helping immensely with lower back problems, cervical problems, arthritic knees, hypertension and cardiac related conditions.
