Osteoarthritis (OA) also known as degenerativearthritis or degenerative joint disease or osteoarthrosis, is a group of mechanical abnormalities involving degradation of joints,including articular cartilage and subchondral bone. Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion. A variety of causes”hereditary, developmental, metabolic, and mechanical deficits”may initiate processes leading to loss of cartilage. When bone surfaces become less well protected by cartilage, bone may be exposed and damaged. As a result of decreased movement secondary to pain, regional muscles may atrophy, and ligaments may become more lax.

Treatment generally involves a combination of exercise, lifestyle modification, and analgesics. If pain becomes debilitating, joint replacement surgery may be used to improve the quality of life. OA is the most common form of arthritis,and the leading cause of chronic disability in the world.
IN Modern Medicine at present there Is no treatment which can stop the progression of OA and finally all patients have to go for joint replacement.
This article deals with only pathological point of view of sujok treatment in Osteoarthritis of knee joint.
Considering the fundamentals of triorigin we can conclude that skeletal system of our body carries basic nature of energy of Homo at triorigin level and Humidity at six ki level.
So problem in OA is seen at two levels -Joint system and Skeletal system.
Via joint system it is easy to approach via Six ki……
All peripheral joints are controlled by Ah Wind in which knee joints are controlled by subbranch of dryness energy.

Main issues here are……
Joint inflammation I.e Heat
Joint and cartilage erosion I.e dryness
Osteophytes formed I.e coldness
Joint space reduced I.e deficient hotness.
Weak muscles and ligaments I.e deficient wind
Decreased synovial fluid I.e deficient humidity.

So we get above mentioned constitution.
So one can sedate the predominant energy as per situation of patient.
I mostly use V, VI sedate and I tone.
Formula comes like this…..
Ah Wind rent unit dryness if both knees have problem …… V, VI sedate and I tone.
AhWind rent Ah dryness if left knee has problem …… V, VI sedate and I tone.

Ah Wind rent  Um dryness if right knee have problem …… V, VI sedate and I tone.

To avoid type 1 or type 2 circulation better to choose chakra.

 

In triorigin we have many formulas but I choose to influence skeletal system via triorigin.
We need to strenghten Ho in bones of whole body as well as in bony parts of knee as both erosion and Osteophytes are strongly HE in nature.
Ho is body. Ho is layer. Ho is bones ….tone Ho ,sedate He ,tone Ne.
Ho is body. Ne is structure. He is hetero structure. Ne is limbs. No is Legs. No is joints of legs. He is knee joints. Ho is bone of knees……tone Ho, sedate he, tone ne.

After improvement patient should start SMILE TAICHI and SMILE YOGA to prevent relapse of disease.
