Abstract

The disease like Sandhigata Vata which is similar to modern disease entity Osteoarthritis, is a silent enemy of the physical ability of human beings. Besides other Vata provoking factors Jara (old age) is an important factor and hence the disease is prevalent more in aging population. The provoked Vata gets seated in the Sandhis (Joints) and damages the joint structure (Hantisandhin). Functional and structural deterioration is obvious in the disease. For effective management of the disease Multi-modal treatment approach is the need of time. Amapachana, Snehana, Swedana, Lekhana, Basti, Upnaha, Agnikarma, Shamana Yoga etc. treatment modalities are used in Sandhigata Vata according to the patient condition. Multi-modal approach in the management of Sandhigata Vata(osteoarthritis)  is much useful to treat patient successfully.
