Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Paget’s disease


Locomotor system holds a prime importance in the normal functioning of the body. It includes healthy joints and bones. And these healthy bones and joints promote good locomotion and movement of the body. What if they get affected with some pathology? It hampers the normal functioning of the body. Today we are going to discuss one of the rare disorders of bones named Paget’s disease and its management with Ayurveda.


Paget’s disease is a disease of bones that is characterized by the formation of new bone tissue that replaces the old bone tissue. In this disease, the bone becomes fragile and misaligned. This is a condition that involves cellular remodeling and deformity of the bones (one or more bones). There is a structural change in the bone that causes the bone to weaken and may result in deformity pain, fracture of associated joints. In this disease, the pelvis, skull, spine, and legs are most commonly affected. This disease is a chronic and slowly progressive disease of the skeletal system in which there is bone destruction (osteolytic) and reformation (osteoblastic).
