About Arthritis

Arthritis refers to inflammation of the joints, such as wrists, knees, fingers or hips. The disease is characterized by the pain, stiffness, and swelling of the affected joint. Arthritis can also affect connective tissues and other organs of the body. The chances of having this condition increases with age as your joints get worn down over the years.

Arthritis usually causes pain around your joints but can also manifest as swollen joints, redness of the joints, tenderness, trouble moving and problems doing daily tasks. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that develops as a result of strain on a specific joint. Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by an immunity disorder and affects joints and tissues.


About Muscle Weakness

Your brain sends a signal through spinal cord and nerves to initiate a muscle contraction. Muscle weakness is a condition where there is difficulty in getting a normal muscle contraction in spite of your best efforts. It is common and is observed in everyone at some point in their lifetime. It can be caused by exhaustion, extensive exercise or sickness. However, persistent muscle weakness with no apparent cause needs attention.



Some of the common causes of arthritis are as follows:

  • Obesity
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Excessive alcohol intake
  • Abnormal kidney function
  • Certain medications
  • Viruses
  • Bacteria
  • Fungi
  • Genetics
  • Environmental factors
  • Smoking
  • Underlying medical conditions such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Muscle weakness can happen in many health conditions. Some of the common causes are as follows:

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Muscular dystrophies
  • Polio
  • Graves disease
  • Stroke
  • Lack of muscle tone
  • Myasthenia gravis

  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Lou Gehrig’s disease

Ayurveda’s view on Arthritis and Muscle Weakness

Arthritis is classified as two types, Sandhigat Vata (Osteoarthritis) and Ama Vat (Rheumatoid Arthritis). Sandhigat Vata is a condition caused by malnutrition aggravating the joints that are already injured by infections or a previous injury. It is a condition where there is pain and swelling in the big joints.

Aggravated Vata along with Ama is transported into the joints. Together, Vata and Ama destroy the soft tissues in the joints and later damage the bones. The toxins can also clog the channels supplying nutrients thereby causing further damage. The effects on the joints result in the classic symptoms of osteoarthritis which include inflammation, stiffness, pain, and swelling.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is caused by the accumulation of toxins and the malfunctioning of the defense mechanism. There is a drastic accumulation of toxins in the body along with an increase in heat (Pitta). The imbalance of these elements affects Ojas (Element of the body’s strength and immunity) initiating the disease cascade.

Ama is carried by Vata and reaches sites predominant with Kapha (phlegm) like joints. The sticky toxin clogs micro-channels called ‘srotasa’ that nourish the body. This process not only depletes Ojas but also clogs the channels. The Ama (Toxin) that reaches joints is considered a foreign body resulting in an immune response. This is believed to be the cause of the autoimmune-disease.

According to Ayurveda, “Mamsa Dhatu” refers to the muscles in the human body. Vata vitiation within the mamsa dhatu is responsible for the problems with tissues surrounding the joints.
