The painful disease, knee osteoarthritis (OA) mainly causes by obesity and major bone and muscle injuries Low back pain affects approximately 60-85% of adults at different times. The terms lumbar osteoarthritis (OA), disc degeneration, degenerative disc disease and spondylosis are used in life to describe anatomical changes to the vertebral bodies and invertebral disc spaces that may be associated with clinical pain syndromes. Spinal osteoarthritis is known as degenerative process caused by narrowing of joints space,osteophytosis, subcholona sclerosis and cyst formation.




Objective: The objective was to normalize the osteoarthritic changes of knee-joints and degenerative changes in lumbar spine by topical application of phytoconstituents with specialized techniques. Materials and methods: 980 nos. of patients were selected, who generated to be part of the study. Finally after exclusion criteria, 198 patients (males: 66(33%) and females: 132 (67%)), of60.32 ± 9.84 years old, suffering more than four years with medial tibiofemoral osteoarthritic changes in both knee joints and degenerative changes in the lumbar spine were selected and therapeutic efficacy was evaluated by phytotherapeutic application until 42 sittings.

Results: The present results indicated for the first time, by topical applications of phytoconstituents in six postural positions could fully normalize the degenerative changes in lumbar regions and osteoarthritic changes in both knee joints, possibly by the regeneration of muscles and cartilages.

Conclusion: Low back pain and knee pain can be removed by the topical application of phytoconstituents by specialized techniques in 42 sittings, possibly through regeneration of muscles and improving cartilage formation at the particular, hyaline and semilunar levels.
