Ayurveda's effectiveness makes it more attractive even today, and it is very simple to manage medical problems with the help of Ayurveda. Knee pain is one of the most common problems that Ayurveda can effectively treat. Janu Vasti Therapy is intended specifically for the knees. Reduced inflammation and pain, as well as muscle strengthening, are among the advantages, this treatment is known as Janu Vasti. Here, we will discuss the benefits of Janu Vasti Ayurveda treatments and everything you need to know about it. Vasti Ayurveda Treatment (Enema) is considered to be one-half of all treatments (Ardha Chikitsa) because it fixes the vitiated Vata dosha. There are primarily two types: Asthapana Vasti (Decoction enema) and Anuvasana Vasti (Oil enema). So read along to know about Janu Vasti Ayurveda treatment & its benefits.


What Is Janu Vasti? 


Knee problems are caused by a Vayu imbalance in the area, which is caused by a Vata dosha imbalance. Swedana and warm medicated oils help to counteract the cold and dry conditions caused by the imbalance. It is performed in the morning for Kapha dominant individuals, noon for Pitta dominant individuals, and evening for Vata dominant individuals. In general, the therapy should be performed first thing in the morning.
Janu Vasti is a specialized Ayurvedic treatment that involves collecting medicated oil and storing it in compartments created around the knee joint or the site of inflammation or injury. It can be used to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal disorders such as osteoporosis, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ligament tear, and so on.

In Which Condition Is Janu Vasti Beneficial? 


Osgood-Schlatter Syndrome 


This condition results in a painful bump below the knee where a tendon from the kneecap connects to the shin. Overuse and irritation at the tendon insertion defined as the tibial tubercle are the most common causes. The discomfort may come and go over time. It is common in both adolescent boys and girls (ages 13 and 14)


Patellofemoral Pain


Rather than an injury, this is frequently caused by issues with muscle imbalance, tightness, and leg alignment. There is discomfort between the patella and the underlying thighbone (femur). It is common in athletes and young adults, particularly those with a slight misalignment of the kneecap. This condition develops in older adults as a result of kneecap arthritis.


Knee Osteoarthritis


It is the most common type of arthritis in the knee joint. It is a type of arthritis that is caused by degenerative wear and tear. It most frequently affects people over the age of 50. It is possible that it will occur in younger people as well. The cartilage in the knee joint eventually wears off in this disease. When the joint is mobilized, this causes pain, stiffness, swelling, and movement disruption, as well as click sounds.


Iliotibial Band Syndrome 


It is caused by a band of tough tissue that runs from your hip to the outside of your knee. This becomes inflamed and causes pain on the outside of the knee if it is irritated by overuse or other problems.
Other indications include:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Meniscal damage
  • Popliteal cyst
  • Tendonitis
  • Gout and pseudogout
  • Ligament tear
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Knee strain

Janu Vasti is the most effective Ayurvedic treatment for acute and chronic knee pain. All you have to do is meet with an experienced Ayurvedic doctor and explain your situation. The doctor will assist you in getting your sore knee back into rhythm. This method has been clinically proven and effective.
