Abstract

Ayurveda is the science of life. It defines any disturbance in the equilibrium of Dhatus (Dosha, Dhatu, Mala) is known as disease and on other hand the state of their equilibrium is health. Attainment of equilibrium is achieved by Samanya and Vishesa siddhanta. Vishesha has great role in Ayurveda like Samanya for being the Chikitsa Siddhanta. Sandhigatavata is a one among the Vataja Nanatmaja Vyadhis, with clinical symptoms like Sandhishula, Shotha, Prasaranaakunchana Vedana etc. According to WHO, Osteoarthritis is most common musculoskeletal problem in world (30%). Most pharmacological approaches for pain management are considered temporarily effective and not very safe. In Vatavyadhi - Snehana, Swedana and Basti karma are considered as the prime line of treatment. Bahya Snehana and Swedana effects will be achieved in Janubasti. Results and Conclusion: Out of 30, 12 patients (40%) had got Good response, 17 patients (56.66%) had Moderate response and 1 patient (3.33) had Mild response. Thus, Janubasti with Devadarubaladi Taila is having good result in subsiding the symptoms of Janusandhigatavata. Snigdha, Ushna and Guru Guna of Sneha will counteract with the Rooksha, Sheeta and Laghu Guna of Vata and hence controls the symptoms.
