Being commonest form of articular disorders, sandhigata vata poses a huge hindrance in day to day activities of the sufferer like walking, dressing and bathing etc. It is a disease of old age. It mainly affects weight-bearing joints of the body specially knee, hip, lumbar spine. As per Ayurveda, shula, Sotha, Vata poornadriti sparsha and difficult in flexion and extension of the Sandhi are the symptoms. Here is a case of bilateral knee Osteoarthritis who was advised arthroplasty. After completion of the therapy, significant improvement was seen in pain, swelling, range of movement and walking distance after treatment. The patient was successfully managed with internal medication & Patra Pinda Swedan therapy. It is being seen that a large number of patients, after taking allopathic treatment for long durations, are coming to the Ayurveda hospitals and find very good relief. It can be concluded that severe osteoarthritis may be managed with Ayurvedic intervention.
