Ayurvedic Treatment For Paget’s Disease
The term osteoporosis might not be a stranger to most of us. In the present era, after a certain age the bones undergo a destruction phase due to numerous reasons. So almost every individual after 35-40 years of age is suffering from pain in joints, stiffness, restricted movement etc. Paget’s disease is the second most common bone disease after the same. In this article, we are going to discuss paget’s diseases in detail and its management with ayurvedic herbs and herbal formulations.
Paget’s disease is an outcome of the improper bone remodelling or the imbalance between optimal bone formation and bone destruction. The disease shows alleviated bone reabsorption and elevated bone regeneration ratios, resulting in depositions of the bone tissue in unnecessary sites of growing bones. This unusual bone regeneration pattern is due to flaws in the process of bone modelling. Often this process can be very painful and can lead to bone pain, arthritis, bone deformities and fractures. The disease is more prominent in the western countries when compared to the Asian countries. Despite the great innervation of modern science, a complete cure is not available, but the signs and symptoms can be kept at check
Paget’s disease is often not detected due to its mild or fewer symptoms. Many people have very few symptoms or may not be aware of the symptoms seen in Paget’s disease. The symptoms are usually confused with simple arthritis and left at ease. The most common symptoms include:
- Bone pain
- Swelling in the joints
- Tingling sensation with pins and needles
These signs are generally seen in the weight bearing joints of the knees, spine, Thigh bone or femur and shin bone or Tibia. It is rarely seen in fused bones of pelvis and skull. Major nerves seen alongside bones are usually affected, hence when these bones tend to puff up, it compresses the corresponding nerves causing further tingling sensation and very often loss of sensation.
The definitive cause of this disease is yet to be discovered, yet a small group of researchers believe that it may be an aftermath of measles in childhood as recently it was established that measles can cause bone deformities overtime, however evident scientific evidence to prove this theory and to establish the relationship between the virus and Paget’s disease has not been drawn. While other researchers account for and accept it to be in the family as a recessive genetic disease.
Just like any other bone disease, as it is affecting the core functions of movements, some complications are seen associated with it.
- Constant fractures: Due to regular loss of bone density, the chances to endure stress is diminished by the bones, resulting in frequent fractures.
- Deformity: As the deposition of the newly formed bone cells or osteon are on top of the existing cells, it causes the bones to grow abnormally resulting in deformities or external bone growths.
- Associated neurological problems: As the growing bone can always compress the nerve alongside, it can induce tingling sensation, burning sensation and even loss of sensation of the associated area.
On a general note the prevention of the disease can be achieved to an extent by consuming calcium rich diets and never missing your daily dose of sunlight for vitamin D. People who are diagnosed with Paget’s disease are advised to keep their activities and exercises at a mild pace to reduce the bolts of pain.
