Osteoarthritis is the most common condition, affecting the weight bearing joints e.g knees, lower back, hips, etc. In human body, the ends of the bones in normal joints are covered with a smooth, slippery tissue called cartilage, which provides protection to our bones. Joints also contain a fluid called synovial fluid, which acts as a cushion and lubricates the joint. In people with osteoarthritis, the synovial fluid becomes thinner and loses its elasticity. The thinner synovial fluid does not provide a good cushion. For this reason, the cartilage covering the ends of the bones begins to break, which leads to pain and stiffness in the joint. Shri Kaya Kalp, one of the best Osteoarthritis Treatment Clinics in Delhi, India, provides the natural Ayurvedic treatment for all the types of Osteoarthritis.
