About Janu Vasti
Janu Vasti or Janu Basti is a specialized ayurvedic treatment to relieve the knee pain caused due to arthritis by strengthening the knee muscles and joints. The treatment is performed by pouring & pooling medicated oils for a fixed duration of time in a compartment constructed around the knee joints using wet flour of black gram.
This common form of arthritis usually occurs in one or both knee joints. It is marked by the degeneration of articular cartilage that covers and protects the tibia (shin bone), femur (thigh bone), and patella (knee cap) at the knee joint.
This type of arthritis develops after a trauma or injury (post-traumatic or traumatic arthritis) to the knee, such as a bone fracture, meniscus tear, or ligament injury. As a result of the injury, the cartilage cells gradually degenerate. The articular cartilage may detach and decompose into fragments that disrupt normal knee movement and cause pain.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an immune system disease that initially presents itself in people ages 20-50 years. It is caused when the white blood cells that protect the body from infection, bacteria & viruses - start destroying the synovial lining of the joint. When the synovial lining is injured it swells, causing warmth and redness, tenderness, and pain in the knee joint.
The treatment of Janu Vasti is divided into three steps. It is done for a period of 30-45 minutes per session. The treatment varies from 15-20 days depending on the nature and intensity of the condition.
This is the actual process when the patient is made to lie on their back. The treatment is preferably done in morning and is best done on empty stomach. The knee area is massaged with the oil and then a dough or reservoir is made on the kneecap. Warm medicated oil is then poured and pooled for
This is the process of removal of the oil and the flour cabinet. It is then followed by a light massage given using the same oil for 10-15 minutes. This procedure is called Abhyanga. After the completion of the massage, residual oil is cleansed with sterile cloth or cotton dipped in warm water.
