Dr. Geeta D. Parulkar*, Dr. Siddhesh Waje, Dr. Megha Takale, Dr. Pravin Kumar Yadav, Dr. Manjushri Kharat and Dr. Ashwini Khendkar

ABSTRACT

Awareness for Arthritis and related problems was judged in a population of Worli area of Mumbai during a medical camp held on March 18, 2015 at the campus of M.A. Podar (Govt.) Hospital, Worli, Mumbai 18. As preparatory work, a questionnaire was designed on related problems. Following which, a survey conducted during the medical camp was organized by the main author with the help of seven post-graduate Ayurvedic scholars. The information about the camp was advertised through the distribution of banners and pamphlets in the above said area. Total 508 patients suffering from Osteoarthritis, Rhumatoid Arthritis, Gout, Calcium deficiency, Musculoskeletal disorders and Neuromuscular disorders visited this camp. They were screened by physical examination and advised related management of Ayurvedic medicines and special therapies of Snehana (Oleation) and Swedana (Fomentation). It was noted that 68.7% patients were suffering from Osteoarthritis and 67.32% were aware about Shaman Chikitsa (Ayurvedic medicinal therapy). It is essential to pass on basic knowledge about Arthritis and related problems in public for prevention and cure on a larger scale. Awareness of this will definitely get success to conquer the disease up to some extent.
