In this mechanical era of very fast life style everyone has to face mental and physical stress and nobody has time to spend for his own health purpose. Hence to obey Dincharya and Rutucharya is far away from them. Shift duties, excessive travelling, irregular dietary habits, junk and fast foods etc. are some of the common causes which help in vitiation of Vatadosas. Considering all the above factors, it is very obvious that the ratio of Vatavyadhies is increased and Sandhivata (osteoarthritis) is one of them.
A series of 20 patients suffering from SandhigataVata vis-à-vis Osteoarthritis were randomly selected from O.P.D. and I.P.D. of Panchkarma P.G. Department, Rishikul Govt. Ayurvedic P.G. College and Hospital, Hardwar, Uttarakhand, for the purpose of clinical trials of present study. Out of 20 patients, only 16 patients could complete their full follow-up i.e. 3 months. 04 patients had left against their medical advice. Observation and results were drawn on the basis of pain, swelling, tenderness, crepitus, restriction of joint movement, joint stiffness, severity index of OA, VAS scale of pain and health satisfaction criteria.
