Joint pain (Arthritis) & Back Ache, one of the Most Common Ailments, is widely prevalent these days due to sedentary living habits and hazardous work patterns.

The word Arthritis means 'In-flammation of Joints'. It is a chronic disease process. Arthritis assumes various forms, the most frequent being osteoarthritis & Rheumatoid Arthritis which is a reaction of the Joint tissues to some form of damage or Injury. 

Osteo Arthirities

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative Joint disease which usually occurs in the older – age group. It results from structural changes in the particular cartilage in the Joints, usually those which are weight bearing such as the spine and knees. The chief sympto-ms of osteoarthritis  are pain and stiffness in the Joints. The possible cause include malnutrition, conti-nuous physical stress, obesity, glan-dular insufficiency, calcium deficie-ncy and shortage of hydrochloric acid. 

Rheumatoid Arthiritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a serious disease which affects not only the Joint of the finger, wrist, hip, knee and feet but also the muscles, tendo-ns and other tissues of the body. The diseases due to an inflammatory pro-cess of the symposium or lining of the joints accompanied by swelling and eventual deformity. Rheumatoid arthiritis often called the “Cooked food disease”.

Diet for Arthirities

The alkaline action of raw juices dissolves the accumulation of deposits around the joints and in other pine apple is also valuable as the enzyme in fresh pineapple juice, bromalin reduces swelling and inflammation in Osteo arthiritis and Rheumatoid Arthiritis. 

The raw Potato Juice therapy is considered one of the most success-ful biological treatment for Rheuma-toid and Arthritic conditions. 

The lime has also been used as a home remedy for arthiritis since long. The citric acid foud in lime is solvent of the Uric acid which is primary cause of Arthiritis. Sea bathing is considered beneficial in the treatment of arthiritis. The natu-ral iodine in the sea water is said to relieve arthiritis pain. 

Constipation should be avoided as is poisons the system and adds to the irritation and inflammation of the joints. 

The patient should be given a luke-warm enema for a few days to clean-se the bowels. Neutral immersions bath, hot foot bath, Ultrasonic dia-thermy and exposure of the affected parts to infra red rays, steam baths and massage therapy are beneficial in the treatment of arthiritis. It is available in the naturopathy Hospitals. 

Back Ache

Backache, one of the most common ailments, is widely prevalent these days due to sedentary living habits and hazardous work patterns. The psychological conditions associated with emotional stress, which bring about spasam of the muscles may also cause back – ache. 

The spine is made of 24 blocks of bone piled one on top of the other. Sand witched between these bony blocks are cushions of cartilage and elastic tissues called intervertibral discs. The vertebral discs act as sho-ck absorbers for the back. Mobility would be impossible without discs. 

Sometimes these cushions rupture and the pulp protrudes a little. The process is erroneously called a 'Slipped' disc. If the cushion disappears entirely, the result is known as degenerated disc. In slipped – disc trouble, the nerve is affected such a way that the pain radiates down the thigh and leg.

If the disc 'Slips' in the neck area, it causes numbness and pain radiates to the arms, disc trouble does not occur  suddenly but builds up over a long time. 


In most cases of Back ache, the pain is usually felt either in the middle of the back or lower down. It may spread to both sides of the waist and the hips with acute pain, the patient is unable to move and is bedridden. 


The main cause of the backache and spondylosis are muscular tension, 

Joint Strain, Poor Posture and incorrect nutrition resulting from dietetic errors and lack of exercise. 

Shoes with high heels place a tre-mendous strain on the back and other muscles of the body sleeping on too soft a mattress results in an improper back and neck posture, can caused tension, headaches and pain in the upper and lower back. 


Drug prescribed to relieve pain or relax muscles in backache disorders do not cure common back problems. The most important of these is exer-cise which improves the supply of nutrients to spinal discs, thereby delaying the process of deterioration that comes with age and eventually affects everybody. 

Safe exercise include walking, Swimming and Bicycling. Those with sedentary occupations should take a break to stand up every hour. Soft cushioned  seats should be avoi-ded and position should be changed as often as possible.

Neck tension arising from the long hours at the desk or being the wheel of the car can be relieved by certain neck exercises. These exercises help to loosen up contracted neck muscles which may restrict blood supply to the head. 

Proteins and vitamin care is nece-ssary for the development of the healthy bone matrix. Vitamin D, Cal-cium, Phosphrous and the essential trace minerals are essential for healthy bones. 

Hot fomentations, alternate spongi-ng or application of radiant heat to the back will also give immediate relief.  Yogic asanas which are bene-ficial in the treatment of backache are bhujangasana, Shalabasana, Halasana and Shavasana.
