Natural Treatment For Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal hyperostosis (DISH)


Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis is a disease of ligaments of the spine. Ligaments are the fibrous connective tissue that connects bones to bones. These are the bands of tough elastic tissue around your joints. They give support to the joints and limit their movements. These ligaments are around knees, ankles, elbows, shoulders and other joints. When there is a stretching or tearing of ligaments then it can make the joints unstable. The most common injury of ligaments come from playing sports. In this article, we are going to discuss diffuse-idiopathic-skeletal-hyperostosis disease and its Ayurvedic management. 


Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis is also known as DISH disease. This is a common skeletal disorder that is characterized by a bony hardening of the ligaments in areas where they attach to the spine. This disease is also known as Forestier’s disease. There is an abnormal calcification of the soft tissues that surrounds the joints of the spine and also affects the peripheral or appendicular skeleton. In this disease, there is a formation of new bone in the spine (most commonly thoracic spine) along the anterior longitudinal ligament and also sometimes the posterior longitudinal ligament. This may lead to partial or complete fusion of adjacent vertebrae. DISH disease manifests as a calcific enthesopathy with pathologic bone formation in the ligaments and tendons where they attach to bone. 


This disease is caused by the buildup of calcium salts in the tendon and ligaments. But the exact reason why this happens is not understood yet.
