Any damage to the joints from disease or injury can interfere with the movement and causes joint pain. Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains and other injuries.
According to Ayurveda, it is a condition which is caused by aggravated vata and accumulation of ama (toxic by-product of improper digestion). The first type is associated with poorly nourished joints or low bone density and overall weakness in the joints. This kind of problem starts with some discomfort, a cracking sound, and if not taken care of, results in immobilization of the joints. Because of poor nourishment, it starts to degenerate. The second kind is associated with a toxic overload in the joints. As ama (the sticky, toxic waste-product of incomplete digestion) accumulates in the joint, it first creates stiffness and heaviness. If it stays there for a long time, the joint can become swollen and painful.
The following medical conditions are some of the possible causes of joint pain as a symptom.
