Osteoarthritis, a common degenerative disease seen in the elderly, is treated in Ayurvedic medicine with yoga basti. In a study published in the International Journal of Ayurvedic Medicine, the effects of yoga basti in osteoarthritis were evaluated.
Based on the findings of the study, the researchers concluded that yoga basti is a safe and effective treatment for osteoarthritis as it reduces pain, swelling, tenderness, and crepitus, and improves the patients’ ability to walk.
