Introduction: Osteoarthritis of knee (OA knee) is a kind of degenerative disease. Its Management becomes so challenging through modern medicine. As the medicines are effective only for a short duration of time with adverse effects on body. So it’s better to find the management through holistic approach like Ayurveda Science. In Ayurveda OA Knee can be correlated with Janu sandhigat vata which is one, among the eighty Nanatmaja vata vyadhis. When the vitiated vata lodges in sandhi i.e. joint, it is termed classically as sandhigata vata. Janusandhigata vata is a condition where vata dosha, afflicted due to nidan sewana, localizes through kha baigunya in janu sandhi i.e. knee joint , manifesting pain, swelling and restriction of movement locally.
