What is Bursitis Ayurvedic treatment


Bursitis refers to the inflammation or swelling of the sac between the joints. This sac called as a 'bursa', is responsible for providing a cushion for the bones and the supporting structures of joints- the tendons and muscles in the region of the joint. It helps in providing mobility and flexibility to the joint.1

As per Ayurveda, symptoms of bursitis are similar to those seen in asthi-sandhigata vata.2 The cause for the same is vitiation of vata that along with rakta (blood) and ama (toxins), localizes in inter joint space to produce the symptoms. As per Ayurveda, it is a kastasadhya (difficult to treat) or asadhya (incurable) disorder.2,3
