The most common symptoms are joint pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility that progressively becomes worse over time. The pain typically becomes worse by prolonged activity and relieved by rest. Stiffness is most common in the morning, and typically lasts less than thirty minutes after beginning daily activities, but may return after periods of inactivity. There maybe a crackling noise (called "crepitus") when the affected joint is moved, especially the shoulder and knee joints.
Sandhigata is a joint disorder that causes the breakdown of the cartilage and bone.
The Ayurvedic text lists joint pain under Vatavyadhi which are disorders mainly caused by vata dosha. Categorized as Sandhigata vata it presents with depletion of the cartilage and synovial fluid. Vata creates an empty space, and crepitus a grating sound is heard as well as a grinding sensation is felt between the bone and cartilage. Vata also causes abnormal growth of the afflicted tissue which causes pain, swelling, and inflammation.
